Police arraign construction worker for allegedly stealing electrical cables



The police on Tuesday arraigned a construction worker, Joshua Anthony, in an Upper Area court at Mpape in Abuja for allegedly stealing electrical cables worth N425,000 from a building.

The Prosecution Counsel, Mr Stanley Nwaforaku told the court that the defendant was employed by the complainant to secure her building located at Pent View estate, lokogoma Abuja.

Nwaforaku said on July 3rd the complainant went to the building site for inspection and discovered that the defendant stole all the electrical cables from the ceiling valued at N425, 000.

He said the case was reported at Apo Police station on July 5 by the complainant, Ms Roselyn Onazi of Life camp, Abuja.

Nwaforaku said that during police investigation the defendant could not defend the allegation.
