Ezeh said, “Just imagine how this young man has cut his life short over nothing, It is hoped that this will serve as a deterrent to others engaging in this dastardly act.

He further calls on members of the public to be vigilant and on the lookout as it appears that vandals are on the rampage, attacking EEDC installations and inconveniencing its customers.

“Let’s all join hands and ensure these very few people in our society that are bent on making life miserable for all of us are stopped.
