Osun State chapter of Amotekun, a Western Nigeria Security Network, has apprehended a suspected robber identified as Mumeen Saheed with a sum of N1.2 million cash and jewelleries in Osogbo area of the state.
The 36-year-old suspected robber was arrested on Friday while wandering around with the properties which he claimed to have stolen since February from his former landlady who lives around the Local Government Secretariat area of Shagamu, Ogun State.
The suspect who confessed to having spent part of the money, said he was the one taking care of the landlady, which allows him to get access to the woman’s room.
Mumeen told Amotekun corps that he had kept the money in the bush while shuttling between Ibadan and Osogbo waiting for COVID 19 to end, so he could rent a house and settle down.
The Field Commander of Amotekun, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, said, the properties recovered from the suspect have been handed over to the Nigeria Police, Oja-Oba Division, Osogbo, for further investigations.
Also recovered from the suspect were assorted charms and the picture of an expatriate he claimed was brought to him by a client for prayer.
The field commander, who warned evildoers to be conscious of consequence, reiterated that the security outfit would not let down the people of Osun.
KanyiDaily had also reported that Osun State chapter of Amotekun arrested 27 Chinese and 10 Nigerians over illegal mining in the state.
