When people in authority fail to address basic issues like inadequate security and electricity, they too become victims of such circumstances. This is the case where the offices of Senators Henriques Tokpah of Bong County and Milton Teahjay of Sinoe County were burglarized, and several items stolen. Other offices at the Capitol Building have been vandalized and robbed in the recent past.

A security guard at the Capitol blamed the incident on lack of electricity, stating that darkness in and around the building makes it vulnerable to theft and vandalism.
