A suspected thief identified as Daniel Ekwerekwu, an indigene of Aguleri, Anambra state, has died after breaking his skull during a fall while trying to escape arrest, this morning, in Lagos

He had gone to Okungade street, Mende-Maryland, Ikeja, to vandalize a car and steal its parts. However, at about 6:04a.m, one of the owners of the cars being vandalised woke up to prepare for church service only to see Ekwerekwu vandalizing his car.

He raised alarm which attracted a police patrol team as well as neighbours. They chased after the suspect, who ran into a building. He tried to scale the fence but unfortunately 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 has since been deposited at the hospital’s morgue.
