The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 16-year-old boy, Adeniyi Muhammed, for stealing 14 female pants.
This was revealed by the spokesman of the Command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement on Saturday.
Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested following a report by one Amudalat Opaleye, a resident of Kano Street, Ayetoro, at Ayetoro Police Station at about 6am of August 18, 2020.
Opaleye said the suspect sneaked into her room and stole her pant, but while trying to sneak out, he was caught.
Upon the report, the Divisional Police Officer of Ayetoro, CSP Mobolaji Jimoh, detailed his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested.
A search warrant was executed in his house and another 14 used female pants were recovered there.
Muhammed has confessed to the commission of the crime, but claimed that he was sent by somebody to get those pants for him.
Oyeyemi said effort is on top gear to get his so-called accomplice arrested.
The Command’s Commissioner, Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has directed that the suspect be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
