The Kwara State Government has raised the alarm over vandalisation and theft of streetlight cables and bulbs and other components of solar farm tunnels currently being built in Ilorin under the Light-Up Kwara (LUK) project.
In a statement issued via its Facebook page on Thursday, the government described activities of the vandals as sabotage and warned that anybody caught vandalizing the LUK facilities would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
The government noted that it has alerted security agencies in the State to the development and warned those involved in the act to desist or face prosecution.
It also urged residents to take ownership of the public facilities and secure them, noting that the facilities were procured with tax revenue paid by members of the public and must be protected against vandalism.
The government also urged the members of the public to report any suspected vandalisation or theft of the facilities to security agencies, Kwara State Ministry of Energy on Fate road, Ilorin or call this toll-free number 08001000100.
