46-year-old Usman Abdullahi has been apprehended by personnel of the So-Safe Corps Ijebu Zonal Command for theft of a tricycle in Ijebu-Ode.

He was arrested on Sunday, July 31, 2022, after a formal complaint by Odemo Kunle that his tricycle was stolen by yet-to-be-identified culprits. 

This was made known in a statement signed by Moruf Yusuf, Director of Information and Pubic Relations, So-Safe Corps.

 "In the process of tracking the tricycle, the tracking device directs that the tricycle is within Sagamu.

"The officers of the So-Safe quickly swung into action with the directive of the Ijebu Zonal Commander and the complainant was followed to Sagamu for the retrieval of the tricycle. 

"On getting to Sagamu, the Officers met with the Remo Zonal Commander So-Safe.

"The Remo Zonal Commander assigned them an officer to support them for the mission and the tracker directed them to a house along the Sabo Area in Sagamu where the stolen tricycle with registration number MEK-642-WV and another one without a number were found in the possession of Mr Usman Abdullahi.

"The suspect was picked and taken down to Ijebu-Ode along with the two found tricycles and his car for a proper questioning.

"The suspect explained that the two tricycles were sold to him by Mr. Ugochukwu whom he has known for a long time in the Cele Area of Lagos, and he bought them for the sum of one million nine hundred thousand naira (N1,900,000) only and he never knew that they were stolen."

Yusuf stated that the suspect and the exhibit were handed over to the Ogun State Police Command, Igbeba Police Divisional Headquarter for further investigation and likely prosecution.
