A man called Loamy Monchin, alleged to be an accomplice, was also arrested along with the chief. The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 2, AIG Mohammed Abubakar, disclosed this to journalists while parading some suspected criminals in Lagos.

He further disclosed that during interrogation, the suspects confessed to committing the offence. They explained that each time vessels carrying Dangote Cement were discharging cement in their warehouse(s), they (suspects) would take their boat beside the vessel, load some cement into it and pay the loaders N60,000.

They further confessed that they usually buy empty Dangote bags from Mr. Mandela, who is still at large, with which they re-bag the stolen cement. The AIG explained that so far, 700 bags of cement have been recovered from their warehouse at Ituagor village, opposite Apapa Wharf, Lagos, adding that efforts have been intensified to recover more of the stolen cement from the suspects
