The Kwara State command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has paraded a 23-year-old suspect, who allegedly stole 21 phones from students writing the JAMB examination in Ilorin.
The suspect, Kadiri Qudus, was paraded at the command’s headquarters in Ilorin, by the public relations officer of the corps, Olasunkanmi Ayeni.
Ayeni said Kadiri pretended to be a face mask seller at a JAMB examination centre in Ilorin, where he collected 21 phones from students for safekeeping.
He said the suspect ran away with the phones before the students could finish writing the examination.
Speaking with reporters, Qudus denied running away with the phones. He claimed that the phones were actually stolen from where he kept them.
“Out of fear of what would happen to me, I had to run away for my dear life,” he added.
