The T&T United Power (TTUP) group has restarted its vandalism of public buildings and monuments in Port-of-Spain.

Over the weekend, there were several messages spray-painted at location across the city, warning of an ‘Exodus’ coming in late January. Apart from the messages, the group wrote its acronym at all the vandalised sites.

Guardian Media reached out to Police Commissioner Gary Griffith for a comment on the matter yesterday but he said he could not comment on ongoing or pending investigations.

The self-professed ‘Commander in Chief” of the group, Jahpaul Cooper, was arrested and charged for setting fire to the Ministry of Health headquarters last year.

Cooper, 27, was described by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley as a lunatic fringe during a news conference in the weeks leading up to his arrest.

He was granted $200,000 bail on September 18, with his father standing as surety and was seen several times last week in the city, standing with placards preaching his anti-COVID messages.

TTUP has also claimed responsibility for the vandalism of the Guardian Media Limited building along St Vincent Street in Port-of-Spain, where anti-COVID messages were spray-painted across the front of the building and a glass window was smashed.

However, Cooper was only charged with one offence arising from the arson attack.
