The Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has apprehended three suspects involved in various criminal activities, including theft, burglary, and fraud.

ROYAL NEWS gathered in a statement issued by the command’s spokesman, Ayoola Michael Shola, that, “On Monday, 1st of July 2024, detectives from the command’s tracking unit arrested Ibrahim Wasiu, a 31-year-old resident of Eyenkorin, Kwara State.

“The arrest followed a report by Mr. Mumini Kabir regarding several burglaries at his residence, where valuable items including a motorcycle, two Android phones, a home theater system, and other household goods were stolen.”

The statement added that, “After thorough investigations, the suspect was apprehended, and all the stolen items were successfully recovered.”

In a related development, “on the 30th of June, 2024, acting on a tip-off, the command’s tracking unit apprehended Soliu Jimoh, a 33-year-old male, for habitually theft of electrical cables and fittings from buildings under construction in Gaa Ajanaki area in Ilorin.

“Upon his arrest, wires and tools that he uses for his operations were recovered from him”, he said.

The command further stressed that, “On June 28, 2024, Ganiyu Yusuf Olalekan, ‘M’ 38yrs, was arrested for defrauding Mr. Ibrahim Mustapha of
4.5 million naira. The suspect, who falsely portrayed himself as a senior staff of the Ministry of Finance and also claimed to be a politician, deceived Mr Mustapha by promising him three Hajj slots in exchange for the payment.

“Upon investigation, it was discovered that the suspect is a scammer who deceives unsuspecting members of the public for financial gain.

“All the suspects have confessed to the crime and will be prosecuted in a court of competent jurisdiction once the investigation is completed.”

The NSCDC Kwara State Commandant, Dr. Umar J.G. Mohammed, has assured the public that the corps will not rest in its quest to combat criminality in the state.

Mohammed therefore issued a stern warning to criminal elements to vacate the state, emphasizing the corps’s commitment to ensuring a safe environment for law-abiding citizens and making it unsuitable for criminals.
