The suspects identified as Nnamdi Nweke, a welder apprentice, Chibuzor Mouto, an orange seller and Ikechukwu Okafor, a groundnut seller, all from Awka, were paraded at the Corps Headquarters in Awka.
According to the State commander, Mr. Godwin Omoregie, the suspects were cutting up the cables with saws in a bush at Agu Awka around midnight last Sunday when operatives of the corps on patrol heard noise in the bush and went to investigate.
