The Oyo State Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has paraded a 55-year-old man for alleged vehicle theft.

The man was paraded on Thursday by the Oyo NSCDC Command for stealing a Toyota Pienie vehicle.

The Oyo NSCDC Commandant, Michael Adaralewa revealed that the car belongs to Ibirogba Oluwatobiloba.

Adaralewa also disclosed that the suspect was arrested with the vehicle on April 29, at the Iwo Road area of Ibadan.

"The suspect met the owner of the vehicle, a commercial driver, at Isagamu and told him that he wanted to carry some goods at the Gate area of Ibadan.

"The driver charged the suspect the sum of N20,000 for transporting the said goods and the suspect gave him N4,000 as advance payment.

“When they got to Gate area of Ibadan, the suspect took the driver to a canteen to eat.

“On coming back to the vehicle, he told the driver that he had lost his phone and later asked him to help him check at the canteen where they ate.

“By the time the driver came back, he did not meet the suspect and the vehicle where it was parked but later sighted the suspect driving away with the vehicle.

“The suspect was chased by taxi and bike men and was about to be mobbed by angry youth, when the team of NSCDC and Operational Burst personnel rescued and brought him to the command,” he said.

Items recovered from the suspect, Adaralewa disclosed, included an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card, a small bag, a master key, and one hat.

"Investigation is still ongoing and that the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigation is completed."
