Men of the Nigeria Police, C Division, Aganhun, Ile-Ife have arrested a member of the Osun State Amotekun Corps simply identified as Lukas and two others for alleged stealing.
The suspected Lukas was arrested on Friday for allegedly stealing raw gold from Jioore mining site, Oke-Owenna, Ile-Ife, alongside one Sunday and a yet to be identified man from the northern part of the country.
According to the district head in charge of the area, Chief Adebayo Akinola John, revealed that he hired Sunday who used to work with Chinese miners to work on his cocoa farm before he (Sunday) began several suspicious moves.
“I have been noticing him especially his sudden keen friendship with Lukas and some other Amotekun guys.
“So one of my wives called me to inform me about Sunday’s return from a mining site with the Amotekun guy, so I ordered them to search him before allowing him to enter the house which they did and did not find anything on him.
“In fact, they lured him into a room and lock him up, hoping to stop him from leaving the house till I return that day but he broke out. Shortly after my return, he walked him and I confronted him which he could not deny.” The Baale noted.
In her comment, the Investigative Police Officer (I.P.O) in charge of the case, Inspector Busola Joseph said that the suspects have been assisting with useful information, assuring that the law will take its place.
“Sunday, the prime suspect has helped with useful information which led to the arrest of the Amotekun guy and the Hausa man who has been buying the alleged stolen item from him.” The Police officer noted.
