The Police Command in Lagos State has arrested a dispatch rider and his accomplice for allegedly stealing a motorcycle belonging to a Lagos-based logistics company.
The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the arrest in a statement on Sunday.
Hundeyin identified the arrested suspects as Sunday Ekele, 28 and Yakubu Abdurrahman, 28.
He said that the suspects and one other person still at large were arrested by operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) at Agege, where they were about to sell off the motorcycle.
“The suspects were arrested in Oke–Koto, Agege, when the RRS operatives, acting on credible intelligence stormed the area.
“The three suspects, on sighting the police, took to their heels. Ekele and Abdurrahman were arrested, while the third suspect who escaped is still being trailed.
“Investigations revealed that Ekele, after a month of working with the company, connived with Abdurrahman to dispose off the motorcycle, which was procured few days before he was employed,’ he said.
The police image-maker said that the motorcycle had since been recovered.
According to him, the suspects are currently facing prosecution in Ogba Magistrate Court, Agege. (NAN)
