Two teenagers have been arrested in Calabar by men of the Nigerian Police today for allegedly stealing electric cables along the IBB Way.
The apprentices eyewitness said they were apprentices in the shop where they stole the wires.
The eyewitness who spoke in anonymity added that the boys claimed that the owner of the shop (their boss) owed them and the wires were payment for the debt.
But the shop owner raised an alarm when they attempted to leave the shop, prompting the intervention of the Police who had a checkpoint close by, just in front of the Presbyterian Church Primary School, IBB Way and they took hold of the boys and the wire in their possession.
Presently they were being punished and asked further questions by the Police about such a criminal step they took.
