Luck ran out for a suspected serial burglar identified as Aina Toheeb on Friday in Ilorin after some angry youths at Danialu Upper Gaa-Akanbi area apprehended him while he was trying to burgle a house in the community.

The suspect scaled a fence to sneak into a house.

A resident who saw him raised an alarm, leading to his arrest.

“I saw the young man who I suspected to be a thief jumping into the compound through the fence and entered one of the apartments on the premises,” the witness said.

“I immediately raised an alarm and the action drew the attention of everyone in the neighbourhood who later gave him a hot chase.

“The suspect must have been on the business for long considering the way and manner he was jumping over several fences including a security fence and maneouvering his way in order to escape,” he added.

The suspect who was later tied and made to sit on the floor after he was overpowered by the large numbers of youth in the community was later handed over to the police, it was further gathered.

He was reportedly caught with a black bag containing different metal objects suspected to be magnetic irons and different sizes of keys which he uses to carry out his operation.

When interrogated by the youths in the community, he confessed to be a professional burglar that had burgled several apartments around Danialu and within Ilorin.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Kwara Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, said, “I will find out and and get back to you in due cause. For now, I have not received any brief about it.”
