A teenage boy was on Sunday nabbed inside the house of late former African Footballer of the Year and Super Eagles striker, Rashidi Yekini, located very close to Oni and Sons hospital, Ibadan, while attempting to cart away some valuables.
One of the late Yekini’s associates who craved anonymity while speaking Tribunesport said the boy had already packed his loots at one place inside the house and was removing some electric cables when he was nabbed.
“I got a call from one of the residents of the area that someone has been caught inside Yekini’s house. That was when I went straight to the place. When I got there they were about beating the intruder, but I just told them not to beat him that we must not take laws into our hands.
“In order not to waste precious time at the police station I advise that they should allow the boy to go since he has not succeeded in taking away the stolen items. The only thing for us to do now is to ensure adequate security of the house”.
Some of the items he intended taking away are: Ceiling fans, electric cables and other home appliances.
The news of the burglary came barely twenty-four hours after reports in some section of the media that the mother of the late football icon depends on selling bread for survival. The story which his lawyer, Jubril Mohammed described as fallacy, saying Yekini made adequate provision for his mother before he died.
