Lagos State Police Arrest Ex-Convict for Stealing Hours after he was Released from Prison for the same crime

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on Saturday morning arrested an ex-convict Yakub Yusuf hours after he was released from prison.

Yusuf aged 23 was arrested on Saturday 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 from where he stole valve covers of 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
