Osun Amotekun arrests security guard for stealing air condit

The Osun Amotekun Corps, on Friday, disclosed that they apprehended a 25-year-old man employed as a private security guard for purportedly stealing nine air conditioners in Osogbo.

According to Brig-Gen. Bashir Adewinmbi, the commander of Osun Amotekun, the suspect, identified as Micheal Eze from Ebonyi state, was apprehended following the sale of the stolen air conditioners to scrap buyers in Osogbo.

“The suspect was arrested on Monday after the owners of the house he was engaged to guard in GRA, Osogbo, reported to Amotekun that their air conditioners had been stolen.

“After his arrest, he confessed to have stolen and sold the air conditioners, worth N400,000 each, to scrap buyers in Osogbo for N5,000 per one.

“The suspect equally confessed that it was not his first time stealing his employer’s property,” Adewinmbi said.

The Amotekun commander said two of the air conditioners he sold were, however, recovered from their buyers.

He said the suspect had been handed over to the director of State Security Service (SSS) for subsequent interrogation and prosecution.

He urged members of the public to work with security agents to rid the state of crime and criminal elements by providing information that will help nip crime in the bud.
