A 25-year-old man suspected to be a serial phone thief, Chinedu Ike, has been arrested by the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command.
This was disclosed in a statement by the RSS on Wednesday.
According to the statement, the suspect who was rescued from being lynched by a mob for stealing a phone, committed the same offence a few weeks after.
“The suspect was rescued from jungle justice by the RRS patrol team sometime in September 2022 in Iyana Oworo over the phone theft.”
“He was beaten to a coma by witnesses before he was rushed to the hospital by the team.
“On Monday, using his usual style, he sneaked into a parked car to steal the driver’s phone.
“Ike was arrested by our team when those who knew him hinted to the driver to check his phone,” it said.
RRS stated that its team recovered the driver’s Infinix Note 10 from the suspect’s bag.
The statement said Ike had been sentenced.
