Two men have been arrested by the police in Ogun State for stealing a truck belonging to the Dangote Cement Factory in Ibese.
Omolola Odutola, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, identified the suspects as Lawal and Mohammed Ndatotu.
Odutola said the truck driver attached to Dangote Cement’s transport department in Ibese had reported that his truck, with registration number KPF 237 XA, was stolen while he left his two motor boys, Mohammed Lawal and Ismail, inside the vehicle.
“Upon returning to the parking area on October 29, 2023, the driver discovered that his truck had been taken to an unknown location, and the two motorboys had absconded,” Odutola said.
She added: “One Lawal and Mohammed Ndatotu were later tracked and apprehended at Ogbere by the Ogbere Divisional Police Officer.”
According to her, the two suspects have since “confessed to stealing the vehicle from its parked location.”
She added that the police have commenced investigations into the matter while taking the necessary actions in accordance with the law.
