There was a little pandemonium at Owode Community in Ife Central earlier today, State of Osun as men of vigilante group arrested two men for stealing a roll of 150mm cable.
Residents of the area who were all asleep were jolted around 2am on Monday by the noise of the vigilante group.
A vigilante in charge of the neighbourhood, Mr Francis Ojo, who spoke to our correspondent on Tuesday afternoon said that nemesis caught up with the men as they were rounded up by the vigilante routine patrol team in the wee hours of today.
“I was the one that informed my colleagues about the incessant stealing of cables in the area and the operation was carried out by our routine team patrolling that axis. We observed till after some hours, the two men came out from the bush with some stolen cables and our team then acted promptly,” he said.
He added that the arrested men had made useful statements which have been transferred, together with the men to the police for further investigation.
However, a community leader in the area, Mr Adedibu Ridwan has urged the residents to maintain peace, saying the men will face the wrath of what they did.
