Ope had gone to render a home service to the customer on Sunday when he stole the pants
According to her, after the vulcanizer had fixed the tyre and left, she discovered that her pair of pants spread on a line in the compound was missing.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday, stating that the suspect was arrested following a report by the woman at the Warewa Division in the Ifo Local Government Area of the state.
The PPRO added that the complainant reported that she had called Ope to help fix her car’s deflated tyre.
Since the vulcanizer was the only person, who came into the compound, she went round in search of him, but he was nowhere to be found.
His house was quickly searched and the woman’s pair of pants was recovered there.
On interrogation, the suspect confessed to stealing the pair of pants with the intention of taking it to a herbalist for money rituals.
