Operatives of the Western Nigeria Security Network Agency, Amotekun, have arrested three suspects for allegedly stealing 18 goats.
The suspects who were paraded on Tuesday, September 6, at the Amotekun Osogbo Command, Osun state are Segun Oladipupo, a 40-year-old mechanic, Wale Samuel and Sulaiman Garbuga.
The Osun Amotekun Field Commander, Amitolu Shittu disclosed that the suspects were arrested in Osogbo after some operatives of the Oyo State Amotekun sent a signal to the Osun Command that some criminals were dealing in stolen goats.
Amitolu revealed that upon getting the signal, the security outfit swung into action and raided some suspected places where Segun Oladipulo was picked alongside Wale Samuel.
In their possession during the raid was a space bus that the suspects were using to carry out their criminal operation.
Shittu explained that the suspects were using the bus which was given to them by their sponsor, who is now at large, to carry out the evil act.
“The suspects disguised as people transporting beans and onions and use it as cover to ferry the goats which according to the suspects were picked at different locations in Osogbo and Ibadan.
“We were notified by some operatives in Ibadan, Oyo State that some criminals were engaging in stealing goats.
“We decided to raid some places and discovered some suspects with a bus carrying goats. They put beans and onion to cover them. During interrogation, they confessed to having stolen them.”
He added that the suspects will be handed over to the police and charged to court after the conclusion of full investigations.
