“There have been increasing cases of minors engaged in such acts and it reflects the moral decadence in the society.

“I urge relevant stakeholders to take drastic actions to check the trend for the sake of our youths,” he said.

One of the minors, however, denied involvement in the act, saying he only reprimanded the victim for abusing him.

In another development, the NSCDC commandant also said they had arrested two suspects for alleged vandalism of electricity cables at the Ebonyi International Shopping Mall.

According to him, the suspects, aged 21 and 22, hail from Amasiri in Afikpo North Local Government Area of the state.

“Cases of vandalism are rampant in Ebonyi and we urge relevant stakeholders to sensitise the people, especially youths, to stop engaging in such acts.

“The NSCDC is seriously warning vandals to repent or face the full wrath of the command,” he warned.

He noted that the suspects would be prosecuted after the completion of investigation.
