Police, yesterday, arrested two suspects for allegedly stealing panties at the Mission House of an orthodox church along Arakale Road, Akure, Ondo State.
The suspects, Samuel Linus and Adekunke Ogundana, working with a security outfit, were posted to the church.
They were, however, said to have stolen the panties the daughter of the venerable of the church spread overnight.
The young lady reportedly raised the alarm around 6am the following day after discovering that the two panties spread on the line at the back of her room had disappeared.
The two security guards denied the allegation but they were handed over to the police by the clergy. One of the suspects, Ogundana, claimed that he was sick throughout the night battling with ulcer.
But the other suspect, Linus, said there was no strange movement in the church premises and the vicarage in the night. “The only strange thing I noticed during the night was the barking of the dog.
I moved to the place but there was no strange movement. I was surprised when I was called about the development because I have no business with pants or underwear,” Linus said.
Femi Joseph, Police Public Relations Officer, said the command had commenced investigation into the matter. Joseph added that the two suspects would remain in police custody.
