Sharing a video of the suspect, Hundeyin said, “This 17-year-old was released from prison two days ago after doing two years for cultism.17
"Yesterday, he broke into someone’s house to cart away valuables. What exactly are we getting wrong? NB: His lips…he had scuffles with neighbours who apprehended him, not the Police."
