Oct 16, 2012 – 3 Monkeys Arrested In Ikotun Lagos For Theft

In a one of a kind drama that happened over the weekend in Lagos State Nigeria, 3 monkeys and their handlers who are Fulani herdsmen were arrested for allegedly breaching public peace and stealing. naijagists.com

The monkeys and their minders got arrested at Ikotun roundabout.

We learnt the monkeys who resisted being forced into the Police station continued their usual acrobatic demonstration and displays at the entrance of the Police station.

As the monkey’s demonstration stirred up confusion due to the large crowd at the Police Station, the police officers who arrested them threatened to shoot them.

Few minutes later, Ikotun Divisional Police Officer, Akika later came to their rescue.

It was learnt through the residents that whenever the monkeys and their minders were in Ikotun, a large crowd usually gathered to watch them display. But criminals seized the opportunity to steal from the onlookers and passers-by pickpockets usually have a field day during such displays.

Before the monkeys were arrested on Friday, a victim, Nurudeen Idowu complained to the police that when he passed through a crowd watching the monkeys, he lost N5,700 he had on him.

He said he suspected that the monkeys’ minders were collaborating with criminals to steal from the people.

Another victim, Mrs. Victoria Udoh, claimed she lost N22,000 when she joined the crowd to watch the monkeys display, lamenting that she could not tell her husband how she lost the money.

A trader in Ikotun market, Edwin Chris, also claimed he was a victim. He said his N9,000 was stolen as he watched the monkeys during the week.

    Its a shame to those who fall victims how could you loose yo money whilst watching monkeys display that’s ridiculous to say the least. I’m not a nigerian but when did Ikotun became a zoo. People shoud be wise. Find something beta to make yoself useful than to watch monkeys. I think the victims deserve wat they got. People knows that whenever there is these monkey display money disappear so why going there. To that woman victim wat are you going to tell yo husband that you lost the money whilst enjoying monkey display kikikiki!! you mek me laugh, forgive my manners but this is fun cant you see it
