Three arrested for stealing 300 bags of fertiliser

Men of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested three suspects, Banjo Adeleke, James Dalex and Haladu Junaidu, for allegedly breaking into the Iganmu Flour Mill’s warehouse to steal about 300 bags of fertilisers.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said in a statement on Wednesday that the Chief Security Officer of the company informed the police about the missing fertilisers, adding that the security guard of the warehouse was arrested for questioning.

Elkana stated that during follow-up investigation, the stolen fertilisers were traced to a warehouse at the Daleko Market in Mushin, where they were sold to some buyers from Kano at the rate of N4,000 per bag, adding that three persons were arrested in connection with the crime.

While the truck used in perpetrating the crime had been impounded, Elkana said the suspects would be charged.
