According to Vanguard, the middle aged man was arrested in Ijapo area of Akure, after some residents in the area suspected him to being an armed robber monitoring the area. When he was arrested and interrogated, he could not explain what he was doing in the area.
Speaking on the incident, the Ondo state Police spokesman, Femi Joseph,
“We do not want to presume that he is a mad man. There are medical tests he needs to undergo for us to believe him. If at the end of the day he is found to be a robber, as it is being speculated, he will face the wrath of the law.”
