Pandrol clips are elastic fasteners attached to the base plate so the rail cannot move vertically or horizontally with respect to the base plate.

A source within the company said the construction giant had lost more than 30,000 pieces of pandrol clips since the construction of the new rail project that passes the area began.

A commercial motorcycle which was allegedly used by the suspects, was also recovered.

District Manager (West), Mrs Angelique Ikwuka confirmed the arrest.
