Drainage Barrier Vandal

Officials of the Lagos State government have captured a suspected vandal in the act of damaging the iron reinforcement within the concrete barrier separating the Ogudu Garden Valley scheme from the System One Channel (Odo Iya Alaro).

The suspect (name withheld) who was apprehended last Saturday, confessed that he had engaged in the act once before now alongside some accomplices who are on the run. He stated that he usually sells the vandalized iron at a giveaway amount to mobile scrap buyers.

He has been handed over to officers of Ojota Police Station for further interrogation and prosecution.

Speaking on the development,  the state Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab urged residents to always take ownership of public infrastructure.

He added that the concrete barrier which demarcates the Ogudu Garden Valley scheme from System One Channel (Odo Iya Alaro) was constructed in 2011 and is a vital infrastructure for the state drainage system.

He said it is only when residents take direct ownership that such criminally minded people in the society would be kept at bay and not allowed to destroy multi-million naira infrastructure that serves the majority.

He emphasised that the full force of the law would always be applied to those caught vandalizing public infrastructure.
