Family, lover, arrested for stealing


Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested one Tega Teddy , his lover , Karima Edom , and parents , Uroye Teddy and Margaret Teddy, for allegedly conspiring to steal the property of one Mrs Folashade Odunuga.



Odunuga, whose house is located on Ade Onitiri Street , Harmony Estate, Langbasa, in the Ajah area of the state , was said to have gone on a three- month vacation when the incident happened .

It was said that Tega ’s girlfriend, Edom, a close neighbour of Odunuga, allegedly passed the information of the victim ’s absence to her boyfriend .

The Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti , said the stealing had been going on for weeks until Odunuga’s househelp , one Eniola Abisola , visited her boss’ house and discovered that some items were missing .

She reportedly told the police that she couldn ’t understand how the burglars entered the apartment as all doors to the house remained closed.

Oti said Abisola informed the police about the incident, adding that the command’s swift response to the case led to the recovery of the stolen property from the suspects .

The PPRO said , “She ( Abisola ) immediately alerted the Divisional Police Officer of the Langbasa Division , SP Adaobi Okafor, who mobilised her detectives to check the neighbourhood and the residents whose names were in the station ’s watch list .

“When the detectives called on Tega , they saw the stolen Chevrolette Aveo with number plate, AKD 512 AP, in front of his parents ’ house at New Osho layout , Langbasa. He was promptly arrested .

“Exhibits recovered from the suspects include the saloon car , a 42 - inch flat screen TV, LG Home theatre sound system, electric generator, one standing fan , five leather bags , one ipad , baby shoes and other personal items . ”

Oti said Tega had confessed to the crime and had explained how he and his allies perpetuated the burglary.

He said , “During interrogation , he revealed that he entered Odunuga’ s house through the ceiling and began to pack the household items to his father ’s house.

“He narrated that his mother helped him to hide the stolen items in an uncompleted building while his lover , Karima, hid some in her house . Tega further revealed that his father went with him to the victim ’s house to tow the car . It was discovered that Mrs Margaret Teddy had put the stolen property for sale.

Oti also stated that the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi , had called on all Lagosians to be security conscious.

He said , “CP Imohimi Edgal urge Lagosians to take their personal security seriously by ensuring that their houses are entrusted in the hands of trusted relations , friends or aides whenever they travel .

“He admonished that people should go back to our old way of visiting their neighbours to check on them. He added that if such was the case in this instance , Teddy and his girlfriend Karima wouldn’t have had the effrontery to cook, eat and drink wine in Folashade Odunuga’s house .”
