A 44-year-old man identified as Olumide Agboola who robs online vendors has been apprehended by Police operatives attached to Makinde Division.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin who confirmed this, said the suspect was arrested following a painstaking investigation that was launched after a number of reports were received about his activities.
''Different CCTV footages at his various crime scenes have aided in the irrefutable identification of the suspect.
In his last operation, the suspect dispossessed his victim of her Infinix Hot 9 mobile phone, as well as the assorted fabrics, underpants and singlets she came to sell, all valued at N193,000.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect’s modus operandi was to pose as a genuine buyer on social media platforms, order items and request vendors to supply the items at designated hotels, where he would then rob them.'' Hundeyin said
He added that investigation is ongoing to recover other stolen items from his previous operations.
