Osun Landlord’s Son Paraded For Burglary

A 47-year-old man, Sekoni Ramon Temitope, has been nabbed by men of the Osun State Police Command for alleged burglary and theft of five hundred (500) vehicle shafts worth millions of Naira.

This was made known by the state Public Relations Officer, Yemisi Opalola, who disclosed that the suspect is the son of the landlord of the warehouse where the vehicle parts were stolen.

Opalola, on Tuesday, said Temitope was arrested on February 4, 2023, after the complainant reported at Dugbe Police Station, Osogbo.

The spokesperson said, “On 4\2\2023 at about 8:00am the complainant reported at Dugbe Police Station that on 3/2/23023, when he got to his shop located at Ajegunle, he discovered that it has been broken into and the above exhibits (goods) worth six million five hundred thousand naira only (N6,500,000) were carted away by thief or thieves.

“The police operatives quickly put the investigation mechanism in place, arrested the suspect and recovered the stolen goods.”

Furthermore, the suspect would be charged to court after the investigation is completed, Opalola said.

On his part, the victim, Adebisi Tajudeen, said he lost over ten million naira to the theft.

In his words, “The goods exhibited were the ones found in his room. Sekoni is a hardened criminal. He steals my goods late at night by entering the warehouse through the roof and leaves around 6am to sell them.

“Nobody has been suspecting him since he’s the landlord’s son. When I grew suspicious of him, I took some policemen there but they could not apprehend him.

“He was arrested because I was fortunate to see him departing early that morning because I was in my shop trying to organize some of my goods which just came by road from Lagos. When I saw him, I held on to him and alerted the Police.

“He is not the only guilty party here. The people buying those goods from him should be arrested too because they are all guilty of buying stolen goods. When they are arrested too, we may get to the bottom of this matter.”
