In his words, “The goods exhibited were the ones found in his room. Sekoni is a hardened criminal. He steals my goods late at night by entering the warehouse through the roof and leaves around 6am to sell them.

“Nobody has been suspecting him since he’s the landlord’s son. When I grew suspicious of him, I took some policemen there but they could not apprehend him.

“He was arrested because I was fortunate to see him departing early that morning because I was in my shop trying to organize some of my goods which just came by road from Lagos. When I saw him, I held on to him and alerted the Police.(www.naija247news.com)
