A man named Moses Eze has been arrested by the police in Oyo State for allegedly stealing noodles from a shop in the Ojoo area of Ibadan, the state capital.
Eze is accused of breaking into a shop belonging to one Grace Bamigbola and stealing two cartons of noodles.
According to reports, the police officers were alerted when neighbours sensed a strange happening in one of the shops in the area. But before the police could reach the area, the looters had completed their mission.
Luck, however, ran out on them when policemen suspected a man waiting to board a vehicle at Isokin junction with some items. The suspect happened to be Eze and he was brought to the police station with the items.
In the morning, Mrs Bamigbola came to the station to lodge a complaint that her shop where she was selling food items and provision was burgled overnight with some items carted away. The Police showed her all the items recovered from the suspect but to their surprise the items were identified by Mrs Bamigbola as her property.
Eze is now set to be arraigned in court for prosecution.
