Man arrested for allegedly tapping electricity from street light to power ice-block machines
Residents of the G. R.A area of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, have exposed a man who is allegedly tapping electricity from street lights to power his ice-block-making refrigerators.
The suspect, who was arrested on Wednesday, was said to be a big-time ice-block dealer in the metropolis that has been suffering from a total blackout for about a year.
