A 28-year-old man, Deji Ayoola, who was being interrogated by the police after he allegedly stole from a commuter, has reportedly stolen from the female police officer interrogating him, PUNCH reports.
Ayoola was arrested by officers of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) after he allegedly picked the pocket of one Ayodele Akerele in the Ojodu Berger area of Lagos State.
He reportedly stole the wallet containing N14,500 over the weekend.
While he was being questioned, the sum of N1,200 fell from the pocket of the police officer when she brought out her phone.
The suspect allegedly picked the money. Another suspect who reportedly saw him pick the money, exposed him some minutes later
“It was the devil who pushed me into the act,” Ayoola said after he was caught the second time.
Lagos Police Spokesperson, SP Dolapo Badmos said the case has been transferred to the Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit, for prosecution.
