A driver was arrested for stealing his company’s car barely 24 hours after he was hired.

According to reports, a 30-year-old driver identified as Jimoh Taoreed, was arrested barely 24 hours after he was employed, in the Bodija area of Ibadan, Oyo state.

Jimoh who was employed to distribute ‘pure water’ sachets, reportedly deceived a boy assigned to assist him, asking him to wait while he withdraws money from a bank in another location in Bodija, he then abandoned the boy and proceeded to drive the vehicle to an unknown location.

Following his arrest, police discovered he had lied about himself and took the job with the intention to steal. Jimoh had given his data to his employers claiming to be Saheed Popoola, an indigene of Eruwa town in Ibarapa local government area, Oyo state, when he was actually from Irawo Owode in Atisbo local government of the same state.

According to the Oyo state police commissioner, Leye Oyebade, the vehicle was eventually recovered at Jimoh’s village in Irawo Owode.

Here’s what Jimoh said when he was interrogated:

“About three weeks ago, while distributing bags of water to customers, a spirit pushed me to drive the vehicle away. The thought was countered by another spirit which told me not to do it. But at the end, I obeyed the first one that urged me to steal the vehicle. I left the person who was distributing the water bags and drove the van to my village. I went to pay for a bold sticker reading ‘Oga Nla’ (Big boss) and posted it on the van. Unfortunately for me, I was traced to my village and arrested. I was suspected by my family members that I stole the vehicle. I believe they were the ones who informed the police. I admit that my act is of the devil and I promise not to do so again.”
