The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command has arrested an ex-convict, Yekini Opeyemi.

Opeyemi, working as a guard at Ojota New Garage, was nabbed for being in possession of two stolen 2.8KVA generators.

The 35-year-old suspect was apprehended near Odo-Iya Alaro at Ojota in company of others (now at large).

He was trying to load one Firman and one Tigmax generator, both 2.8 KVA, into a Volkswagen Golf car.

The driver on sighting police operatives sped off, leaving Opeyemi behind.
