Amotekun Corps in Osun State has said it arrested two underage boys who allegedly broke into a shop in Osogbo and stole food items and some money.
Retired Brig.-Gen. Bashir Adewinmbi, Osun State Amotekun Commander, made this known to newsmen on Tuesday.
Adewinmbi said the boys, who are 13 and 11 years old, gained access to a shop at Asubiaro, Osogbo, in the early hours of Saturday and stole recharge cards, noodles, beverages, and some cash.
He said the suspects were later arrested in the day, at about 6:24 p.m., in an uncompleted building, after the incident was reported to Amotekun Osogbo Command by the shop owner.
“The duo were arrested at their hideout after our operatives received intelligence about their location."
“The suspects were caught with some of the stolen items still in their possession, and during interrogation, they confessed to perpetrating the act,” Adewinmbi said.
