The Ondo state police command says it has arrested one Adetokunbo Adeojoa, a 59-year-old man, for allegedly stealing a vehicle at Igoba in Akure north LGA of the state.

Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, the police spokesperson, in a statement on Monday, said officers swung into action immediately after the case of car theft was reported.

She said the vehicle was recovered in Kano state where the suspect had taken it for sale.

“But they were unable to sell the car because the buyer insisted on the original copies of the car documents, while they were trying to forge the document in Kaduna,” the police spokesperson said.


“The Police at Tafa Division Kaduna were informed and his partner Felix Edward, 37 years, was arrested while he escaped.

“Meanwhile, the other suspect has been handed over to the Command while the third suspect whom he had an argument with is currently at large.”

Also, Odunlami-Omisanya said the command also arrested two suspected cultists in possession of illegal firearms.


She said the police got intel that the suspects, Mayokun Olamide, 27 and Pelumi Folorunsho, 26, were hiding in the Mayowa area of Oda road in Akure.

She added that “in the course of searching the house, one Alex Oluyide who hid in the ceiling was caught with a bag, two locally-made guns with live cartridges, a mask and four customised Aiye Confraternity cap was found in the bag.”

She said the suspects who confessed to being members of Aiye Confraternity would be charged in court at the end of the investigation.
