The criminalsIt was reported on Tuesday that robbers broke into the office of Air Peace in Akure, Ondo State and robbed the airline of millions of naira over the past weekend.
A source who had confirmed the incident, said the robbers broke into the office through a crack in a wall. “The hoodlums burgled into the office of the airline through a small cracked wall and stole valuables including the vault. I learned that they couldn't immediately break the vault in the short process and hence the reason for taking it away."
According to a new report by SaharaReporters, the burglars who invaded the local office of Air Peace airline in Akure, have been caught with the stolen vault by airport security guards on Thursday.
The robbers had broken into the Air Peace office in Akure while it was closed for the weekend and stole a vault containing millions of naira.
While speaking to a correspondent, a private security guard revealed that the two suspects confessed to the crime and said the manager of the office masterminded the criminal operation.
“We caught them today [Thursday] right inside the bush after they had broken the vault and looted the money saved inside it. It was very embarrassing when the staff, mostly the disgruntled manager of Air Peace airline here in Akure, accused us [security guards] of being behind the theft at their office.
“Aside from the police investigation over the case, the security guards also embarked on an internal investigation to really unmask those behind this crime,” the security guard said.
Cecilia Uguama, manager of the Akure airport, confirmed that the culprits were whisked away to the Obe Ille Division police station after being caught by the security guards.
Mrs. Oguama said the employees at the airport were shocked to discover that the office had been broken into over the weekend when they resumed work on Monday.
“We are happy that you also witnessed the people that were caught today by the security guards of the airport. It is surprising because this is the first time such a thing has happened at the airport,” she said.
