Police Inspector detained for allegedly stealing Plantain

A police inspector attached to the Railway Police Command, Ebute-Meta, identified only as Joseph, has been detained for allegedly stealing bunches of plantain.

The Inspector was said to have been arrested on Tuesday while trying to hide the plantain in trucks. A senior police officer in the command ordered his detention and his arraignment for the crime.

A source at the command, however, told Punch that another senior officer pleaded with the officer that the suspect be released as the incident could embarrass the command.

He said, “The inspector is attached to the Railway Police Command. On Tuesday around 12pm, he went to the commissioner’s lodge and harvested plantains without any authority. As if that was not bad enough, he brought two trucks into the command to take the plantain away. He wanted to cover up the plantains with some iron sheets so that he could take them through the gate without being detected.

“He was on this when some workers at the Railway Command called the attention of the authorities to it and he was arrested.”

Another source added that the superior officer of the suspect pleaded for his release.

He said, “The matter is still on. The senior officer who pleaded that he should not be prosecuted explained that the action could dent the image of the command.”

Very unfortunate, invariably this suspect might harbour robbers if he caught one because this attitude tells a lot about him as an officer.
