Abeokuta - A suspected thief, Tokunbo Ojo, has confessed to stealing 3.2 million naira from a car parked at a political rally organised by the People's Democratic Party (PDP) in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Punch reports.

Ojo said he has a 'master key' which he uses to gain entrance into cars and steal valuables during public functions such as weddings and burials.

The father of two, who lived on Agbotikuyo Street, Agege, explained that he usually dressed well and pretended to be one of the invited guests at functions before carrying out his deeds.
