OGUN State Police Command on Sunday, said it has arrested the driver of a private company, Oluwaseyi Oyetunde, and two others for allegedly absconding with goods worth N4.7 million.
The goods were said to have belonged to one Hayat Kimya Company.
Spokesperson of the command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said two of the suspects, Segun Oluwaseun and Chijoke Ogbu, were arrested after the matter was reported at Agbara Police station last week by one Oluwatosin Ayodeji.
Ayodeji had reported to the Police that Oyetunde loaded the goods meant to be delivered to a Lagos customer, but “since the 24th of August, 2021, the said driver has absconded with the goods and the truck.”
Following the report, the DPO of Agbara division, SP Saleh Dahiru, was said to have detailed his crack detectives to investigate the sudden disappearance of the driver and the goods.
Oyeyemi said, “The team embarked on an intelligence-based investigation and traced the driver and the truck to Lagos State where he was promptly arrested with the empty truck.”
During interrogation, Oyeyemi revealed that “the driver confessed that he diverted the goods to the receivers, who bought the goods from him at a give away price.”
