Mumeen said that he had access to the old woman’s room, because he was the one taking care of her and since he had stolen the money, he could not go back to continue his job.
Asking how he has been fairing since February, the suspected robber claimed he had kept the money in the bush while shuttling between Ibadan and Osogbo waiting for COVID 19 to end, so he could rent a house and settle down.
Mumeen added that he decided to steal the money because of her landlady’s wickedness to her children, who he claimed are suffering, despite their mother’s affluence.
As at the time of filing this report, the suspect and the exhibits have been handed over to the Nigeria Police, Oja Oba Division, Osogbo, for further investigations.
Also recovered from him were assorted charms and the picture of an expatriate he claimed was brought to him by a client for prayer.
Reacting, the field commander, Amotekun Osun, Comrade Amitolu Shittu, warned evil doers to always be conscious of consequence; just as he commended his men for a job well-done, pledging that the state owned security outfit would not let the people of Osun down.
