As the country continues to pass through the current economic recession, the vices attached to it have also started raising their ugly heads across the country.
Traders in Rwang Pam Street got their own share of the oddities, when they came to their shops this morning to find that, some of the shops have been burgled.
Among the shops burgled in Rwang Pam Street last night, were Vintek Computers Ltd and Chibex Computers. Both outfits deal on computers, their accessories and Stationary.
Although REALITY gathered that the incident has been allegedly reported to the Nigeria Police (NP), the private security operatives in the street where the incident took place have lamented that, if the Soldiers in the street had assisted them by coming out, the perpetrators would have been apprehended.
“They came with a vehicle for the operation. If the alarm that we made was accompanied by assistance from the armed security men around, we would have arrested these burglars.” They stated.
Another development in Jos, the capital of Plateau State is the high rate of theft by armed men in moving commercial vehicles (with no registration identity), taxis and Commercial Tricycles, popularly called Keke.
This development has resulted in seeing commuters now reverting to analog phones in the city, as the major target of these armed thieves is digital phones.
