Michael Daniel, according to, was arrested following a complaint by one woman, Titilayo Ero, of Dorf Royal Events Centre, Asero Abeokuta, who had apparently employed him.

The woman reportedly told police that she had had the said computer monitors in her shop, but realised in August that the store had been broken into and the computers stolen.

Police spokesperson in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi is quoted as saying: “Detectives swiftly moved into action and invited the salesman who was barely three weeks old in the employment of the centre. When he was thoroughly interrogated, he confessed to being the brain behind the dastardly act”.
