Three suspected thieves have been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command while allegedly looting a warehouse.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, made the disclosure in a statement on Thursday.
The suspects he revealed, broke into the warehouse situated at OPIC Estate Agbara in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.
Luck however ran against the suspects — Jelili Waheed, 33; Otun Taye 44; and Olu Adeniran 46; as they were arrested following information received at Agbara divisional headquarters of the police.
Oyeyemi said the suspects were arrested on Tuesday following a tip-off that some hoodlums were vandalising and looting the warehouse of the company.
The PPRO added, “Upon the information, the DPO Agbara division SP Saleh Dahiru mobilised his detectives to the scene where the three-member syndicate were rounded up at about 4pm.
“Recovered from them is one Iveco Truck with registration number AKD 747 XZ which they used to convey one Forklift, one 300KVA Generator and one 25 KVA Generator property of the company.”
Oyeyemi, however, said the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun has ordered a thorough investigation into the past activities of the suspects with a view to charging them to court as soon as the investigation was concluded.
