The command’s spokesperson, Daniel Adigun, who disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, said Adowole was arrested following reports of missing animals in the neighbourhood where the suspect was nabbed.

Adigun explained that the woman had successfully stolen the goat and was making her way out of the area when she was caught by a resident who challenged her while leaving with a stolen black animal.

He said, “On November 9, 2021, a woman named Suliyat, 30, a mother of three, who claimed to be a trader and hails from the Konda area, Ilobu, Irepodun Local Government Area of Osun State, was caught at Ayepe, Osogbo, where she went to steal a black goat.

“While taking the stolen goat out of the community, she was challenged and upon interrogation, she confessed to stealing the animal.

“Residents of the area, who were furious about the act, pounced on her but for the intervention of NSCDC personnel, Osun State Command, who rescued her.”

In her confessional statement, the woman admitted to the crime and narrated how she usually gets away with the stolen goats while making residents believe she bought the animals from their owners.

She said, “I have a peculiar way of catching the animals. I usually carry some dried peel of cassava in a plastic basket so when I look round and find no one in sight, I put down the basket.

“Goats find it attractive and while feeding on it I catch and tie them. Anyone I meet on the way would think I bought it from the owner.” 

Adigun said the suspect would be taken to court after investigation had been concluded into the matter.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a 39-year-old man was arrested for sneaking into a nursing mother’s house to steal her two-month-old baby for money rituals in Ogun State.
