Bizarre as Hoodlums Vandalize Harmony FM, Idofian
By Kaosara Olayemi Oladimeji
Radio Nigeria Harmony FM in Idofian, Kwara State, has fallen victim to a devastating act of vandalism by unidentified hoodlums.
According to reports, vandals targeted the station’s essential armored in-comer cables connected to the transformer, ruthlessly dismantling and absconding with the cables.
This egregious act occurred under chilling circumstances, where the station’s staff members and the security guard were overpowered and restrained by the assailants before they executed their nefarious mission.
Mr. Ibrahim Uche, a staff member of the station, reported that this brazen act of sabotage transpired during the early hours of Tuesday morning, between 2 am and 5 am, leaving the station in a state of disarray and despair.
This unfortunate incident adds to a growing list of similar attacks on stations under the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, with Prime FM Lokoja and Precious FM Lafia having experienced similar misfortunes in recent months.
