A 25-year-old security operative, Micheal Eze, has been arrested by the Amotekun Corps in Osun State over the alleged theft of nine air conditioners in Osogbo.

The suspect, who worked as a private security guard at a residence in the Government Reservation Area, G.R.A, in the state capital was said to have stole the items in the building he was guarding.

A statement made available to newsmen in Osogbo on Saturday by Amotekun’s public relations officer, Olusola Idowu, hinted that the suspect was caught in the act of removing an air conditioner unit in the residence he was employed to guard.

He was said to have sold nine units of split air conditioners worth N400,000 each to scrap buyers at N5,000 each.
