A 26 year old man, Opeyemi Tosin has been arrested by the police force for making away with 26 generators over the past five months. He has been named a serial burglar by the commissioner of police in Ondo state.
The accused man confessed to his crimes stating that he has two accomplices. His accomplices are generator repairers. They assist him by finding buyers for the stolen generators.
Mr. Tosin says that he used to be a drycleaner before he ventured into criminal activities. Before stealing, he would survey the environment and observe it for a while to pick the perfect time.
The commissioner of police in the state, Bolaji Salami revealed that the 26 generators were recovered from those the suspect had sold them to.
It is hoped that the law will take its due cause and that those involved will be properly prosecuted.
