A middle-aged man, Saliu Raofeek accused of stealing motorcycle has been arrested by Operatives of Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) at a popular supermarket in Ilorin, on Tuesday Sallah.
A statement by the spokesman of the state command of the NSCDC, Babawale Afolabi, said that Raofeek was declared wanted over alleged theft of motorcycle and was nabbed at a popular supermarket around Ibrahim Taiwo area in the Ilorin metropolis in May.
“It will be recalled that the middle-aged man was accused of stealing a motorbike sometime in May 2021 but evaded arrest and disappeared into a thin air with the stolen bike.
“All efforts to apprehend him since then has proved abortive until he was picked up at a supermarket along Taiwo road in Ilorin.
“Around 11:13 hours, on Tuesday, two operatives from Akerebiata Division, who were on surveillance around Taiwo road in Ilorin sighted a suspect who has been on a wanted list for a while. The suspect was accused of stealing a motorcycle and has since been on the run,” he said.
He said the suspect will be charged to court after the completion of further investigations.
