According to Edafe, after successfully moving the generators of not less than 3,700 mm length, 1,300 mm width and at least 1,750 height, Sunday packages them like a waybill to evade arrest, adding that at the point of his arrest, the police recovered 15 of the generators from the suspect.

Edafe, who noted that he wondered how the suspect manages to steal such extremely heavy generators from people’s homes, said, “How he does it seems like a mystery. This suspect, Titus Sunday aged 49 yrs specialises in stealing heavy generators at night from people’s houses, package it like a waybill in such a way that its very difficult to catch him.

“Over fifteen of these generators have been recovered. Investigation is still on. I will unravel how he does it as time passes.”
