Abeeb Adekunle Olayiwola, 22, was nabbed by student who handed him over to the school security operatives after the items were found in his possession.
Bello Nurudeen, the student who caught Olayiwola, said the he noticed Abeeb carrying a female bad and moving towards a gutter close by.
Nurudeen said: “I felt uncomfortable when I saw him, a guy carrying a woman’s bag. I almost waved the thought off, thinking it could belong to his girlfriend. However, I followed him up and traced him to the gutter side”.
“I saw him drop the bag and he quickly left the scene. I noticed him carrying another bag from the base of the ICT building again, heading straight to where he dropped the former. This time, the bag appeared like that of a male.
“I monitored his movement as he was transferring some items from the former bag to the latter. I decided to move closer to see things clearly.
“When I challenged him to explain whose bag he was carrying, he felt infuriated and said: ‘Why are you questioning me?’
“Then, it was apparent that something was fishy and I immediately called the attention of other students around and everyone came around
“While we were questioning him, security officers from the new ICT building noticed the crowd at the scene and came around to take over the case”.
