Police Arrest Ex-convict For Stealing Hours After He Was Released From Prison

Yakub was arrested again after breaking into Lagos State Fire Service premises, where he stole valve covers of an old fire truck under repairs.

A 23-year-old ex-convict, Yakub Yusuf has been rearrested by the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on Saturday morning, November 12, hours after he was released from prison.

The suspect was arrested around 8am after regaining freedom following his one-month prison sentence for stealing at Lagos State fuel dump, Alausa, Ikeja.

Learning that he was imprisoned because he could not pay a fine which was an option, an NGO facilitated his release by paying the fine on Friday, November 11, just ten days after his conviction on November 1, 2022.

Yakub was arrested again after breaking into Lagos State Fire Service premises where he stole valve covers of an old fire truck under repairs.

The CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi-led RRS has since transferred the suspect to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation and prosecution.
