A Bayelsa State community has subjected two electricity power cable vandals to a more mocking punishment after they caught them in the act.

As seen in viral photos posted on social media, one of the suspects are seen being fed before they were given more beatings by a mob.

Naija News learnt that Preye Ayase and his accomplice, Ringo Tareladei, were nabbed while stealing power cables of a transformer in Agorogbene a community.

The suspects according to reports, were caught at the location on Wednesday, April 20, 2022.

Reacting to the despicable development, the President of the Creek Youths Agenda (CYA), Ouseibai Seperegha Godsgift M, condemn in totality the destruction, stealing and vandalization of the electric infrastructure (cables) connecting the two communities by the hoodlums.

Godsgift in a statement made available to newsmen by his Chief Press Secretary Mr Ebis Okpeke noted that he was disappointment over the unfortunate incident as he called on youths from the area to immediately turn a new leaf henceforth.

He said: “It is very sad and unfortunate that young people were caught vandalizing our near none electric infrastructures with the aim of making money. It is more worrisome especially now that we are agitating for more development of the creek considering its neglect developmentally over the years. To me, i feel pained that young people who ought to protect our facilities in the creek are the ones perpetrating such neferous acts of destruction.

“Therefore, i urge those with such criminal minds to desist from such and engage themselves in productive ventures that will add value to our creek and the society at large or they should be ready to face the full wrath of the law when apprehended,” the CYA president as added.

Godsgift,  thereby appeal to the Bayelsa State Government on behalf of the community, to come to the affected communities to without delay reinstall already damaged electric facilities in Agorogbene, Ogobiri and other communities.

According to him, doing so is important for the advancement of the SMEs in the area.
