By Our Correspondent

Men of Ogun State Police Division in Itele Awori has arrested 21-year-old Ibrahim Adamu, who disguised himself as a scavenger of condemned iron scraps, with some items believed to be stolen. 

He confessed that there are two of them who specialize in breaking into unsuspecting members of the public houses in their absence to steal their valuables. The other fleeing suspect identified as Azonto, said to have hailed from Adamawa, and an orphan who works on condemned iron scraps (same as Adamu) is currently at large, he escaped while the policemen gave him a hot chase but could not be found. Our men have embarked on a manhunt to apprehend the fleeing suspect.

When the policemen searched inside the sack of the suspect, some of the items recovered, are seven ceiling fans, blades and cable wires, when he was arrested and taken to the station, he played dumb and unable to provide  satisfactory information on how he came about the items in his possession.

No dangerous weapon or gun was found on him, just the sack containing the items mentioned above and from careful observation, the items are not condemned or disposed by the owner, but vandalized useful items. The suspect  have been handed over to State Criminal Investigation Departments for discreet investigations, at conclusions of investigation he will be charged to Court. 

The Commissioner of Police CP Alamutu Mustapha psc is abreast of the surge in recent menance constituted by scavengers and scrap pickers, he has mandated the immediate arrest of anyone found vandalizing government property or property of the people in the guise of being a scavenger.
