Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has warned against vandalising public property as those engaged in such acts will be fished out and punished.
The Governor stated this while on a spot inspection of a vandalized water pipe along Rayfield -Bukuru road.
He expressed anger over the waste of water due to activities of persons cutting corners to tap from public water supply lines said such action was not only selfish and criminal, but capable of denying many citizens potable water.
The Governor directed the Commissioner of water resources and General Manager Water Board to immediately investigate those behind the act and ensure that they bear the cost of the repairs in addition to facing prosecution.
He urged all citizens to support Government by looking after facilities within their domains and also report any act of vandalism to security agencies and relevant government agencies.
