Operatives of Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Po­lice Command have arrested a driver working for Nigerian phone retail outlet, Slot Nigeria Limited.
He had eloped with N6 million worth of laptops, mobile phones and its accessories, just as it assisted in the recovery of N4,654,224 worth of goods from the suspect.
The 42-year-old suspect, Olu­mide Babajide, from Kwara State, was tracked and arrested in Kaduna State, where he diverted the goods to after taking them from the Slot Nige­ria Office based in Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos.
The driver, who was engaged in March, 2017, by the company, was directed to move the consignment to Slot outlet in Victoria Island, Lagos in May 2, 2017, when the incident happened.

In his confession, Olumide, who holds a Diploma in Computer Sci­ence said: “I took the good from Slot’s outlet in Ikeja. I was to deliver it to another outlet in Victoria Island, Lagos, but instead I took the goods to Pam-Pam Hotel, Ikeja and returned the company’s Hilux car to R & S hotel, where we normally park com­pany’s vehicles.
“This wasn’t the first time I would be moving laptops, mobile phones and their accessories from one outlet to the other. Since I joined the com­pany in March and I was assigned the job of a delivery man, it had been my idea to divert the goods and ab­scond.
“As soon as it was 5pm that very day, I took a drop from the hotel with the consignment to Ejigbo, where I boarded a Kaduna bound bus.
“Before I got to Kaduna, I al­ready contacted one of the buyers. She bought N1.4 million worth of phones, laptops and phone accesso­ries while I also sold in unit to some other buyers as well.”
He also gave out two phones to a new mistress while he bought a Peugeot 206, 1999 model with new registration number DKA 859 KA from the proceeds of his sales for N912,000.
The father of three was also re­ported to have procured a 32 inch Samsung LCD for N62, 000:00 while lodging in a hotel, abandoning his wife and children.
