Operatives of the Ogun State Security Network (Amotekun) have arrested three suspects for shop breaking in Ijebu-Ode.
The suspects are Onyeneho Chukwuemeka (17), Ibeh Dominion (18) and Adaya Stephen (18).
The Amotekun Commander in the state, David Akinremi, who disclosed this in a statement, said the suspects were arrested on Folagbade Street while breaking into a phone shop.
He said, “When the suspects were quizzed, Chukwuemeka and Dominion claimed that they left Owerri, Imo State, for Lagos on 25th July 2022, in search of what to do to sustain their lives.
“The duo claimed that they slept in Excellent Arena Guest House on Lambe Street, Ojodu Berger, for three days and subsequently left for Ijebu-Ode on 1st August 2022. On arrival at Ijebu-Ode, they broke into a phone shop through the ceiling, but unfortunately, there was no phone in the shop.
“According to them, in the course of searching for another phone shop to break, they met the third suspect, Adaya Stephen, a native of Warri in Delta State.
“They said Adaya accommodated them in an uncompleted building until late at night when they were caught by our operatives while breaking into another phone shop on Folagbade Street.”
The Amotekun boss said the suspects had been handed over to the police.
