Ogun security agency dismisses officer for stealing

The Ogun State Community, Social Orientation, and Safety Corps, codenamed So-Safe Corps, has dismissed one Sunday Adeboye, an officer of the corps, for alleged stealing.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abeokuta by the director of information and public relations officer of the corps, Moruf Yusuf, and made available to journalists on Friday.

According to the statement, Mr Adeboye was dismissed on November 30 for his alleged involvement in a stealing case that took place in the apartment where he was posted at Onibukun Area of Obantoko in Abeokuta.

Mr Yusuf noted that the client complained that between November 12 and November 18, some items were discovered missing from his apartment.

“The said development had compelled the agency to carry out an aggressive investigation.

“The investigation led to the arrest Mr Adeboye, one of the officers attached to the beat, on November 21, who later confessed that he truly committed the crime,” Mr Yusuf stated.

He further noted that the suspect also admitted to stealing a series of things on different occasions in the apartment.

“The general public is hereby advised to desist from relating with the dismissed officer of the agency.

“Whoever associates with him does so at his or her own peril.

“So-Safe will not condone any act that can make the good people of the state lose trust in its excellent security service delivery for the state.

“This step taken will serve as a deterrent to others who would want to compromise at their duty post,” Mr Yusuf added.
