    A middle-aged woman identified as Agnes on Sunday in Abakaliki lost the pot of rice she was cooking to thieves. Some pressmen who visited Agnes’ residence behind Nnodo Secondary School, Amike-Aba on Monday report that she was still in shock over the incident. It took repeated appeals by the correspondent to make Agnes talk.
    “I gave attention to my child who was crying and by the time I came out to continue cooking, the pot of rice had vanished, with the stove still enkindled. “After I recovered from the shock, I started screaming which attracted my husband, family members and neighbours who were all as stupefied as I.
    A private security consultant in Abakaliki, Dr John Odikwa, blamed such incident on the current economic recession in the country. “The country has degenerated to a level that people now steal pots of rice and soup and with the yuletide approaching, the society should be ready for serious security challenges.
    The Public Relations Officer of the Ebonyi police command, Mr George Okafor, described the incident as funny and noted that it had not been reported to the command. “It is difficult for such incidents to be reported but we assure the citizens of the state of adequate security of lives & properties.
