Police Arrest Ex-Convict Hours After Release From Prison

The operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) an arm of Lagos State Police Command on Saturday morning arrested an ex-convict hours after he was released from prison. 

This was contained in a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer in the State, Benjamin Hundeyin. 

The suspect, Yakub Yusuf aged 23 was arrested around 0800hrs 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. 

According to the statement, Yakub was arrested again after breaking into Lagos State Fire Service premises from where he stole valve covers of old fire trucks 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.
