Three suspects have been arrested for deliberately destroying the mast of MTN in Nigeria at Ode-Remo in the Remo North Local Government Area.

According to the police, the suspects are Balogun Lukman, Sunday Kayode and Atanda Abiodun.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspects were arrested on Friday, April 27, 2018, by a patrol team of the Ishara division command.

The team was led by the Divisional Police Officer, Yusuf Taiwo.

Mr. Oyeyemi said the suspects, who came in a blue Ford bus, with the number plate NRK 842 XA, were sighted at the mast site around 2am with the vandalised parts of the mast.

This included three heavy duty batteries and cutters.

He mentioned that, when the suspected vandals sighted the policemen, they took to their heels.

And this according to him prompted the police, to give them a hot chase.

The police spokesperson said while three were arrested, two escaped.

He indicated that the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered a full scale investigation into the case.

And as such the two suspects who fled will be apprehended.
