According to an eyewitness, Abdulkareem Olanrewaju, Modupe, utilizing a master key, stealthily ignited the motorbike belonging to one Olawale Ajibua, a hockey athlete. Unbeknownst to the thief, the watchful eyes of the owner’s wife were upon him as he attempted to abscond from the Adamasingba Sports Complex. Sensing trouble, the vigilant woman promptly raised the alarm, enlisting the help of bystanders to apprehend the culprit.

Fortunately, the swift intervention of hockey coaches prevented the irate crowd from dispensing mob justice, and Modupe was promptly handed over to security personnel within the premises. He now finds himself confined to the confines of the Mokola Police station, awaiting further investigation.
