A young man known as Sunday Olatunji has been apprehended for stealing phone belonging to a trader in Ado Ekiti.

The suspect who is an Okada rider was apprehended in Olorunsogo area of Ado Ekiti by residents when he attempted to burgle into same building where he stole the phone in question some months ago.

The swift intervention of some landlords of the community and some members of the Oodua Peoples Congress OPC saved the suspect from being lynched by some irate youths.

Roundoffnews gathered that the suspect stole the phone late last year when he paid a visit to a teenage girl in the neighborhood.

According to witnesses, after the dastardly act the suspect ran away until on Wednesday when he came back to the area to commit another robbery but luck ran against him.

He was however handed over to the leadership of the Association of Tricycle riders in Ekiti State where he confessed to committing the crime and promised to procure the stolen phone.
