Men of the Lagos state police command, while in patrol today along Awolowo Way in Ikeja, caught this man below stealing the phone of a young passerby.
He struck his body against the victim intentionally and stole his phone stylishly while his partner kept distracting the victim with slaps and exchange of words.
He quickly got on a bus before being arrested by the officers who hurriedly conducted a search on him and found the phone.
The suspect was paraded at the police command today and will be charged to court in earnest.
According to reports, the thieves are very wicked once they come in contact with you and they often operate freely along Ikeja axis and some other areas within the metropolis because there is always market available for their loots at the Computer Village, Ikeja.
His looks might be remorseful, but I can bet it’s all fake, a Twitter user said.
