Ex-employee burgles ex-boss office, hides in water tank

Men of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested a 28-year-old former worker, Ola Adeoye, for allegedly burgling his former boss’ office and hiding in a water tank.

The suspect was a former staff member of Owoyemi Superstore located on Idiroko Road, Sango-Ota in the Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.

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

Oyeyemi said the suspect was arrested following a distress call received at Sango-Ota divisional headquarters at about 1:45 am.

Oyeyemi added that the policemen were told that the store had been broken into.

He said, “On getting to the scene, it was discovered that the two storey-building was broken into through the balcony of the second floor, and the MD’s office had been ransacked, with an attempt to break the company’s safe.

“After diligent searching, the one-man burglary squad was seen hiding in a water tank, from where he was promptly arrested.

“On interrogation, he confessed being a former staff of the company and that he was sacked a month ago.”
