The first vandal, Bayo Agboola, a 30-year-old 3-time ex-convict and cart pusher, was arrested on Oba Akran road at 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, with a hand-saw and two sets of cutting pliers trying to cut a cable from an unlit lamp post.

The second vandal, Abubakar Usman, 27, from Jigawa State, was arrested on Oba Akran at 4:00 a.m. Ikeja, almost at the same spot Agboola was arrested the previous day.

Usman, who was also arrested with a hand-saw and two pieces of cut cables measuring up to 2 meters each, said “My Boss, Mandela buys anything electrical from us. He buys cable at a very good price.”
