Residents of Ojo Street in the Aregbe area of Odeda local government area of Ogun State, on August 22, 2023, arrested Oduwole Abayomi vandalising an electric cable worth N779,000.

The 32-year-old suspect was said to have entered a compound belonging to Adeyemi Olukayode and vandalised some newly installed electric cables in the house.

While the suspect was carrying out the act, it was gathered that some residents of the community had sighted him while scaling over the fence to gain entrance into the compound.

A source in the community who did not want to be mentioned because he was not authorized to speak for the community, said the residents jointly pursued the suspect when he came out with a sack after some minutes.

The source said, “We were waiting for him to come out. And when he did, he was with a sack, so we alerted the others, pursued him, and apprehended him.”

 The State Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect had been charged to court.

“After the suspect was handed over to a patrol team, we have already charged him to court,” the police spokesperson told our correspondent via WhatsApp chat.
