Two private security guards have been arrested over allegations of stealing underwear belonging to the daughter of a renowned pastor in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
The two guards — Samuel Linus and Adekunle Ogundana — were nabbed by officers of the Ondo State Police Command.
SaharaReporters gathered that the guards were manning an Orthodox church situated at Arakale road in Akure where the incident occurred.
Femi Joseph, Police Spokesperson in Ondo State, paraded the suspects before journalists, stating that the daughter of the clergyman reported the case of her stolen underwear.
“The daughter of the pastor washed two of her undergarments and spread them at about 8pm in the presence of the guards. But by 6am the following day, the items had disappeared from the spot she spread them and the case was reported to us,” he said.
He, however, assured that the two suspects would be further probed on the case before they are taken to court.
Speaking to journalists, the guards denied stealing the undergaments and refused to comment further on the allegations.
