Barely three months after a 24-year-old man was released from a correctional centre, having being convicted for stealing, he has, again, been arrested for a similar offence.
The suspect, Ezekiel Victor Thankgod, was nabbed by operatives of the Ogun State Community, Social Orientation, and Safety Corps (So-Safe) vandalizing, with the intent of stealing an outdoor Royal air conditioner (Model: R410) from Covenant Stores, Oju-Ore, in the Ado-Odo/Otta Local Government Area.
In a statement issued by the Corps Commander, Dr. Soji Ganzallo, through the Agency’s Director of Information and Public Relations, Assistant Commander Moruf Yusuf, the suspect was arrested on April 3, at about 03:00am, by a patrol team attached to the Iyesi Area Command of the Corps, headed by ACP Samuel Yusuf.
A resident of Tokis Street, behind Covenant Store, preliminary investigation conducted by the Corps, revealed that “the suspect has a history of stealing money and phones, and was released from a correctional centre in January, 2024”, the statement disclosed.
Having confessed to the crime, the suspect further revealed that he had no fixed address, adding that he was mostly within Oloko Community in Ota.
The statement listed items found in his possession to include charms, a local instrument used for drug paraphernalia, a lighter, a local ring, and cowries, all of which have been handed over to the Onipanu Divisional Police Headquarters, alongside the suspect, for further investigation and prosecution.
