An 18-year-old suspect, Akinyemi Abiodun, has confessed to his involvement in the theft of a tricycle in Igbokoda, Ondo State, and the sale of the vehicle in Lagos for N300,000. Abiodun and three other accomplices, Dube, Emma, and Ope, tricked the tricycle owner, overpowered him and took possession of the vehicle. They then drove it to Lagos where they sold it for the sum mentioned.
The Ondo State security outfit, Amotekun, arrested Abiodun in Lagos and tracked the stolen tricycle through a communication device procured by the state government. The Commander of Amotekun, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, stated that a syndicate specializing in tricycle theft, known as Keke Marwa, has been thwarted by his personnel.
The increase in missing persons in Ondo State has been linked to the use of unregistered commercial motorcycles and taxis. The majority of victims reported that their kidnappers wore hoods and helmets, making it difficult to identify them. Adeleye is urging citizens to follow the rules concerning bike registration in the state for their own safety.
Abiodun’s confession highlights the need for proper bike registration and identification in order to prevent such crimes from happening. The use of unregistered vehicles makes it difficult for authorities to track and apprehend those responsible. It is important for citizens to be cautious and aware of the risks associated with using unregistered vehicles and to follow the rules and regulations in place for their own safety.
