Motorcycle Thief Arrested Inside Supermarket In Ilorin
A wanted motorcycle thief, Saliu Raofeek who was at large has been arrested on Tuesday in a popular supermarket in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.
The Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, had declared Raofeek wanted for the alleged offence since May 2021.
Spokesman of the defence corps, Babawale Zaid Afolabi, disclosed this in a statement in Ilorin on Wednesday.
He recalled that the middle-aged suspect was accused of stealing a motorcycle sometime in May 2021, but evaded arrest and disappeared into the thin air with the alleged stolen motorcycle.
“All efforts to apprehend him since then proved abortive until he was picked up at a supermarket along Taiwo road in Ilorin on Tuesday.
”Around 11.13 hours, on Tuesday, two operatives from Akerebiata Division of the civil defence corps who were on surveillance around Taiwo road in Ilorin sighted a suspect who had been on the wanted list for a while.
“The suspect was accused of stealing a motorcycle and had since been on the run,” he stated.
According to Afolabi, the suspect is in custody at the corps command headquarters in Ilorin.
He would be charged to court after the completion of investigations.
