Man Gets Employed Today, Steals Company Vehicle The Next Day

Jimoh Taoreed, pictured above has been arrested after he disappeared with a distribution van belonging to the Sachet Water producer, the Anglican Diocese, barely 24 hours after he was employed by them.

The state police commissioner, Leye Oyebade, told newsmen at the state command where the suspect was paraded that the 30 year old Jimoh had applied for the job with the intention to steal.

When he applied for the job, he gave his name as Saheed Popoola and said that he was an indigene of Eruwa town in Ibarapa area of the state. However after his arrest, it was discovered that his real name was Jimoh Taoreed and he hailed from Irawo Owode in Atisbo Local Government Area.

On recovery of the vehicle, Jimoh had removed the inscription that was originally on it and replaced it with 'Oga Nla' which means Big Boss.

When interrogated, Jimoh said

“About three weeks ago, while distributing bags of water to customers, a spirit pushed me to drive the vehicle away. The thought was countered by another spirit which told me not to do it. But at the end, I obeyed the first one that urged me to steal the vehicle. I left the person who was distributing the water bags and drove the van to my village. I went to pay for a bold sticker reading ‘Oga Nla’ (Big boss) and posted it on the van. Unfortunately for me, I was traced to my village and arrested. I was suspected by my family members that I stole the vehicle. I believe they were the ones who informed the police. I admit that my act is of the devil and I promise not to do so again.”
