Notorious car burglar falls to his death while evading arrest.


A notorious car burglar has been confirmed dead resulting from injuries sustained while he was escaping from a crime scene to evade arrest.
Daniel Ekwerekwu an indigene of Aguleri, Anambra state, (going by the voter's card recovered from him), had in the early hours of today 12/08/2018, tried to vandalize a parked car.
Nemesis caught up with the said Daniel Ekwerekwu at Okungade street, Mende-Maryland, Ikeja, where he went on a perilous mission of car vandalisation to wit stealing of car body/engine parts.
However, at about 0604hrs, one of the owners of the cars being vandalised woke up to prepare for church service only to see Daniel vandalising his Car.
He raised alarm which attracted a police patrol team from Anthony Police Division on neighbourhood patrol as well as neighbours. They chased after the thief who ran into a building. He tried to scale the fence butunfortunately for him, his hands slipped off the wall and he landed on a cemented floor breaking his skull as a result.
When the police searched his trousers pocket, they recovered a voter's card bearing his name and picture.
He was taken to Mainland Hospital Yaba where he was confirmed dead.
The body was thereafter deposited at the hospital's morgue for autopsy.
The Commissioner of Police once again wishes to encourage Lagos
communities that are yet to form neighbourhood vigilante groups to do so.
The CP promises that once the vigilante group meets the requirements of the law, the Command will recognise it and back them up with armed policemen since vigilante groups are not allowed to bear firearms.
