The suspects identified as Nnamdi Nweke, a welder apprentice, Chibuzor Mouto, an orange seller and Ikechukwu Okafor, a groundnut seller, all from Awka, were paraded at the Corps Headquarters in Awka.
The State commander of NSCDC, Mr. Godwin Omoregie, said the suspects were cutting up the cables with saws in a bush at Agu Awka around midnight last Sunday when operatives of the corps on patrol heard noise in the bush and went to investigate.
The suspects claimed that they were lured into the deal by one Ezike from Awka who is still at large. Two saw tools were recovered from the suspects.
