Police nab ex-convict for stealing hours after an NGO secured his release from prison

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on Saturday morning, November 12, arrested an ex-convict hours after he was released from prison. 

The suspect, Yakub Yusuf, aged 23 was arrested around 8am 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.
