The police in Ogun has arrested a salesman Micheal Daniel who allegedly planned with robbers to burgle his employer’s shop.
The 31-year-old was arrested after officers began to investigate following a complaint lodged by his employer, identified as Mrs Titilayo Ero of Dorf Royal Event Centre, in Asero area of Abeokuta.
In her statement she said about 52 computer monitors in her store, only for her to get to the store on September 30, to find that the store had been burgled and all the computer monitors carted away.
Confirming the news, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi said:
“The detectives swiftly moved into action and invited the salesman who was barely three weeks old in the employment of the centre.
When he was thoroughly interrogated, he confessed to being the brain behind the dastardly act.
He subsequently led detectives to the Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos, where 48 pieces of the computer monitors were recovered.”
The Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr Ahmed Iliyasu ordered that the case is properly investigated and that the suspects be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
