It was learnt that Ayoola was being interrogated at the Rapid Response Squad office in Alausa, Ikeja, on Saturday, when he allegedly stole N1,200, which fell from the policewoman’s pocket.
The suspect had earlier been arrested by the men of the RRS in the Ojodu Berger area for allegedly stealing from a commuter.
The Punch reports that Ayoola allegedly stole a wallet, containing N14,500 from the commuter, who was identified as Ayodele Akerele, before he was arrested.
It was gathered that after the police took Ayoola to the RRS office for questioning, a sum of N1,200 fell from the policewoman, who had removed her mobile phone from the pocket.
When the money dropped on the floor, Ayoola allegedly picked it, but was exposed some minutes later by another suspect.
Asked why he had to steal again while he was already in trouble, Ayoola said, “It was the devil who pushed me into the act.”
Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said the suspect had been transferred to the Lagos Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit, for prosecution.
