A suspected motorcycle thief on the wanted list of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Kwara was caught in a shopping mall in Ilorin.
The spokesperson of the Kwara NSCDC, Babawale Afolabi, said on Wednesday that the motorcycle thief, a male, was caught while shopping inside a supermarket in Ilorin.
“The middle-aged man was accused of stealing a motorcycle sometime in May, but escaped arrest and absconded with the stolen property.
