The Commandant, Mr. Ochogwu Michael, yesterday in Lokoja at a review of the command’s activities last year, said it protected national assets and infrastructures, adding that of the suspects apprehended, 19 were arraigned, out of which four cases were concluded and 15 were pending.

He said the exhibits recovered included illegal petroleum products, vehicles, pumping machines, communication cables and drums, stressing that transformer vandalism, which characterised the first quarter of last year, had reduced.
