Lagos Policeman Turned Serial Thief, Bag Snatcher Dismissed After Victim Traced Him To Police Office

March 18, 2016 – Nigerian Police Officer Turned Serial Thief, Bag Snatcher Dismissed After Victim Traced Him To Police Office

A mild drama happened recently at the Lagos State Police Command headquarter after a sergeant ran in the command few minutes after robbing a lady of her handbag.

The sergeant simply identified as Oluseyi was attached to ‘A Department’ at the state Police Command.

According to sources, Oluseyi was a serial thief, who allegedly used to target females standing along the road. Whenever he robs ladies of their handbags and other valuables, he would drive off in his white Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV), leaving them screaming and crying. He would go for another victim or would drive straight to command, where his office was located. Once he drives into the police command headquarters, he would change his clothes and put on his uniform.

However, nemesis caught up with him after one of his victims traced him to the command. Although the lady was confused when she was finally presented with Oluseyi because he had changed his clothes, she, however, was sure of his car type and colour.

She also recollected three numbers in his number plate. When Oluseyi’s car was searched by policemen who were already getting angry with the lady’s supposed wild allegations, several female handbags, shoes, phones and panties were discovered.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, had also been hearing about the serial thief, preying on ladies, he, however, never bargained it would be one of his men.

Owoseni was so angry with the sergeant that he ordered his arrest. Oluseyi faced orderly room trial and was dismissed.

    Catch them one by one. Many police officers are like this. A particular gang was caught sometime ago in Rivers State and during interrogation, they were speaking of air time, that their contact in the police force did not give them sufficient air time or had deceived them.

    Everybody was confused. What was recharge card to do with this? It wasn’t long before they understood. They had a police officer that they would call whenever they wanted to operate. The officer would allocate them a specific number of hours? say from 8pm–9pm(air time) to operate at a given lication. During this given time frame, the police will never near the said lication.

    But unluckily for the robbers, it was another team of policemen that bursted their operation and got them arrested.

    This guy is not the only one doing this, he has some accomplices among his colleague who are robbing innocent people of their valuable items. The command should broadening their investigation to fish out other robbers in uniform by compelling him to mention other partners in crime otherwise we are just cutting tree by branches instead of uprooting the whole dangerous tree. We are in deep problem in this Country and the whole system needs complete overhauling. This treacherous officer must have killed some innocent people and probably labelled them as an armed robbers where as he is the real silent killer.
