December 13, 2016 – Pictures: Lagos Police Commissioner Fatai Owoseni Frees Hungry Nursing Mother Arrested For Stealing Plantain To Feed Herself & Her Baby

The Commissioner of Police for Lagos State released a nursing mother and her baby detained at Agbowa Police station yesterday.

Fatai Owoseni was on his way to a function when he heard of the story of the young lady who allegedly stole plantain to feed her hungry baby at a market in Lagos on Saturday.

She spent 3 days in detention before the police boss came to her rescue after explaining her situation to him.

The lady whose name was not released told Owoseni she was pushed into stealing plantain because of hunger. Moved with compassion, Owoseni gave the mother and her child N10,000 and warned her to desist from stealing.

Hope some of his colleagues can emulate his good deeds.

May God bless him.

    Goodness, God bless you. I cried when I read the story of the young lady. I also need her contact. Please, my phone numbers are 07030536989, 08143561833. I bet you corrupt politicians that turn our teenagers to begger,pick pocketers, sending children out of school to mention a few it shall not be well with them in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

    A country bless with natural resources and wonderful things where virtually everybody is a begger in one way or the other either we like to hear it or not.

    He did well. But my fear is that others should not follow suite. simply because he gave her money,which is like encouraging others to go and steal and blame it on hunger. You know how Nigerian’s like to abuse privileges and good gesture. God bless you sir.

    See what Nigeria has become, yet those bastards that stole our national wealth are flaunting their ill-gotten wealth in our faces and flying about in private jets. God’s anger never depart from Nigeria’s leaders and their generations yet unborn, amen. What humiliation do people have to suffer to feed their children? What a disgrace. God have mercy and give us a God-fearing leader who will have compassion for ordinary suffering Nigerians and bring comfort and restoration of our past glory.

    This drives me to tears. Who is that mother that will not do the same when your child is crying for food . Pathetic are the policemen that lock her up for 3days together with her kid.
    Pls how can I help this lady .what is her name and her direct contact .

    Timmy Lee Plc I am just like you but was moved by this woman’s predicament but why are you giving me your numbers when I demanded this woman’s contact? I am trying to help out this young woman to stand on her feet and be meaningful to herself and the society. It is not like I don’t have family members back in Nigeria to help financially especially distant relatives but I want to address this woman’s situation first before my own people.

    Besides, when you refereed to your corrupt politicians, I want you to know that I am not there and have never liked what your(our because I am still part and parcel of Nigeria regardless of my US citizenship)are doing. Please like I succinct earlier I don’t want any scammer to contact me in the guise of being the woman in question.
