Men from the Ogun State Police Command have apprehended an unrepentant car thief, Sunday Dosunmu, for the same offence that landed him in prison.
According to a statement issued by the command’s spokesperson, SP Omolola Odutola, the unrepentant car thief was previously detained by Divisional Police Officer Kemta CSP Adeniyi Adekunle on the 17th of September 2022 in Olorunsogo, Ogun State, while attempting to steal a parked car.
Odutola stated that on August 12 at around 1930hrs along Eleme Ogun State, Sunday was caught in his regular crime by youths of that area, while using forged master keys to unlock some cars in that area.
‘’People who saw him raised the alarm which made him take to flight, but how far can a 53yrs old man run? The young guys gave him a hot chase and caught up with him, they later alerted the police team that visited to the scene and arrested the suspect. Two fabricated iron master key was found in his possession and obviously, it is part of the instrument used to unlock unsuspecting car owners’ vehicles, he gets into the vehicle and drives the car away.
“A plea of double jeopardy will not suffice if there was no acquittal on a thorough investigation, he may have been released on want of evidence. However this time, the Police will prosecute him to ensure that justice is served since he has not repented irrespective of his age,” Odutola said.
According to the police spokeswoman, the state Commissioner of Police has been briefed and has asked that complete evidence be presented to the Court to ensure Sunday Dosunmu learns his lesson.
