"Every month, we arrest no fewer than five suspected vandals.

He added that the suspected vandals arrested were being prosecuted and jailed, if found guilty of the offences.

"We have the three arms of government and when we arrest, we send to those who know and can interpret the law and when the culprits are found guilty, they go to prison," he said.

He said the prison was a place to learn from and to become a good citizen after serving jail terms.

The commandant said the officers and men of the command were deployed to every nooks and crannies of the state to ensure effective surveillance of facilities in the state.

He also said that the command had mapped out strategies of securing pipelines within the Lagos metropolis, adding that no vandal would be spared.
