Ogun State Police Command have arrested a company driver, Oluwaseyi Oyetunde, for allegedly absconding with goods worth N4.7m meant for a customer in Lagos.

The police also arrested two other suspects, Segun Oluwaseun and Chijoke Ogbu, in connection with the diversion of the goods, which belonged to Hayat Kimya Company.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

Oyeyemi said the suspects were arrested following a report made at the Agbara police divisional headquarters last Sunday by one Oluwatosin Ayodeji.

According to the PPRO, Ayotunde reported that on August 24, 202, Oyetunde loaded goods worth N4.7m to be delivered to a customer in Lagos and absconded with the goods and the truck.

“Upon the report, the DPO Agbara division, SP Saleh Dahiru, detailed his crack detectives to unravel the mystery behind the sudden disappearance of the driver and the goods.

“The team embarked on an intelligence-based investigation and traced the driver and the truck to Lagos State, where he was promptly arrested with the empty truck.

“On interrogation, the driver confessed that he diverted the goods to the receivers, who bought the goods from him at a giveaway price.

“His confession led policemen to the shops of the two receivers, Segun Oluwaseun and Chijeoke Ogbu, where parts of the stolen goods were recovered and the two receivers arrested,” he added.

Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun, had ordered a full investigation into the case with a view to recovering the remaining goods, and charging the suspects to court.
