Lagos Police Arrest Notorious Pickpocket Through CCTV

The mobile CCTV camera recently procured by Lagos State Government for the operatives of the Lagos Rapid Response Squad has recorded its first surveillance arrest.

The suspect was arrested in Oshodi area after the Mobile CCTV was deployed to monitor the area. 

The suspect, Emmanuel Alowonle, a native of Ondo State, disclosed during interrogation that he came to Lagos about two years ago and work as a bus conductor in the area.
Alowonle was arrested after stealing from a commuter's handbag on the pedestrian walkway. RRS officers spotted him in the crowd picking from a passer-by handbag through the mobile CCTV.

The CCTV camera was jointly managed and put into use by both RRS operatives and technical assistance officers of the Lagos Response Unit, (LRU). It's turning out a good initiative.

The suspect has been detained and would be charged to court soon.
