Two security guards have been arrested for allegedly stealing underwears belonging to the daughter of a pastor within a church’s premises in Akure metropolis.
The suspects have been identified as Samuel Linus and Adekunle Ogundana.
They were paraded on Wednesday alongside suspected kidnappers by the police in Ondo State.
Ondo police spokesperson, Femi Joseph, while briefing newsmen in Akure, said the daughter of the clergyman washed two of her pants and spread them on the line at about 8p.m. in the presence of the guards and by 6a.m., the next day, the panties disappeared.
Mr Joseph said the suspects, who are attached to the orthodox church, were posted to the apartment, which was highly fortified by a private security outfit in the state.
However, the suspects denied complicity in the offence for which they were paraded.
The police also paraded two suspected Indian hemp dealers, Sunday Femi and Friday Ami.
The suspects allegedly hacked a 75-year-old grandmother, Modupe Olorunfemi, to death at her Owo farm.
They allegedly killed her for giving security operatives information about their nefarious planting and selling of Indian hemp in Owo area.
The police spokesperson said, “The suspects and their accomplices allegedly killed the old woman. The suspects would be charged to court after the completion of investigation.”
Joseph added that the suspected kidnappers were arrested at a hideout in Emure-Owo Forest during a raid by the Joint Task Force of the security agencies in the state.
Joseph said the suspected kidnappers were arrested at about 3a.m. by the joint Task Force codenamed Operation crime free, acting on a tip-off.
