A 31-year-old salesman, Michael Daniel, has been arrested for allegedly scheming with robbers to loot the shop of his employer in Ogun State.
The spokesperson for the Police in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed the suspect was detained after a complaint was lodged by Titilayo Ero of Dorf Royal Events Centre, Asero Abeokuta.
He said the woman reported that she had about 52 computer monitors in her store only for her to discover, in August, that the store had been burgled and all the monitors carted away.
The spokesperson said, “Detectives swiftly moved into action and invited the salesman who was barely three weeks old in the employment of the centre. When he was thoroughly interrogated, he confessed to being the brain behind the dastardly act”.
He said the suspect explained that he invited Smith Ajao to join him in the night for the operation, who was later traced to a hotel in Sango Ota, where he was arrested.
The police spokesperson said the suspects led detectives to Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos, where 48 of the computer monitors were recovered. The suspects will be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded.
