A 33-year-old man has been handed over to the police after officials caught him “stealing”.
Operatives of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Corps attached to the Ikoyi-Obalende, Eti-Osa Local Council Development Area (LCDA) apprehended Aminu Al-Amin.
He was in the process of removing garden light glass cases from the Alfred Rewane Beautified Garden, Osborne, Ikoyi, they alleged.
Al-Amin allegedly disguised in safety utility overalls to carry out the said crime.
He has been in the habit of removing glass covers which house the garden lights and selling them at the detriment of the environment, it was alleged.
The suspect has been handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution, the government said in a statement on Thursday.
