CCTV exposes pickpocket in Oshodi

The operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a suspect, Emmanuel Alowonle, for stealing in Oshodi, Lagos.

The 18 year old suspect was arrested after the newly deployed mobile CCTV camera by the RRS during a patrol sited him in the crowd picking from a passer-by.

Upon his arrest, the suspect, who is from Ondo State, told the Police that he came to Lagos about two years ago and worked as a bus conductor.

Confirming the development, the Police Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP Olarinde Famous Cole, said that there would be no hiding place for those who come to Lagos to perpetrate crime, adding that the police would fish them out of their hiding place.

The suspect however, has been handed over to the security task force for further investigation.
