Gov Ayade sets up task force on street light vandalization

Government News Source|19 November 2019 

Worried by the large scale theft and vandalization of street light armored cables around Calabar metropolis and its environs, Cross River State governor, Sir Ben Ayade has set up an anti-theft/vandalization task force.

Announcing the setting up of the task force, Governor Ben Ayade, through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Christian Ita, said: "In the past couple of weeks, government has seen its effort sabotaged by vandals who engage in the wanton destruction and theft of street light armored cables, a development that has ensured some areas in the metropolis are without street light, in spite of the fact that the newly completed 23 megawatts power plant at the Parliamentary Extension is up and running."  

Disclosing the mandate of the three-man task force, Ita said: "The task force has the mandate to arrest,  prevent further theft of armored cables, and consequently prosecute those caught in the criminal act as well as those who buy the stolen cables." 

Members of the task force include Rt Hon. Itaya Asuquo Nyong as Chairman, Chief Ofu Aya and Dr Godwin Amanke as members
