Suspect steals from policewoman interrogating him

19 September 2016, 14:01

Lagos - A 28-year-old man, Deji Ayoola, who was arrested by the police in Lagos State for theft, has allegedly stolen money from the policewoman interrogating him, Punch reports.

Ayoola allegedly stole N1 200, which fell from the policewoman’s pocket during his interrogation at the Rapid Response Squad office in Alausa, Ikeja, on Saturday.

The suspect had earlier been arrested by the men of the RRS in the Ojodu Berger area for allegedly stealing from a commuter.

Ayoola allegedly stole a wallet, containing N14 500 from the commuter, identified as Ayodele Akerele, before he was arrested.

It was gathered that after the police took Ayoola to the RRS office for questioning, a sum of N1,200 fell from the policewoman, who had removed her mobile phone from the pocket according to YNaija.

When the money dropped on the floor, Ayoola allegedly picked it, but was exposed some minutes later by another suspect.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said the suspect had been transferred to the Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit, for prosecution.
