Suspected thief arrested three months after stealing motorcycle in Kwara

Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has said it nabbed a suspected thief two months after he escaped arrest. 

 

The suspect, Saliu Raofeek was arrested at a popular supermarket around Ibrahim Taiwo area of Ilorin metropolis on Tuesday, July 20. 

 

Spokesman of the state command of the NSCDC, Babawale Afolabi, who disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, July 21, said that Raofeek was declared wanted over alleged theft of motorcycle and was nabbed at a popular supermarket around Ibrahim Taiwo area in the Ilorin metropolis 

 

“It will be recalled that the middle-aged man was accused of stealing a motorbike sometime in May 2021 but evaded arrest and disappeared into a thin air with the stolen bike. All efforts to apprehend him since then has proved abortive until he was picked up at a supermarket along Taiwo road in Ilorin,” Afolabi stated. 

 

“Around 11:13 hours, on Tuesday, two operatives from Akerebiata Division, who were on surveillance around Taiwo road in Ilorin sighted a suspect who has been on a wanted list for a while. The suspect was accused of stealing a motorcycle and has since been on the run,” he added. 

 

He said the suspect will be charged to court after the completion of further investigation.
