Passenger Accused Of Stealing N1,000,000 On Board Faces Trial

The Lagos Airport Police Command will today arraign a male suspect, who allegedly stole N1, 008,000 aboard an Air Peace flight from Abuja to Lagos.

Command spokesman Joseph Alabi told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Lagos that the suspect would be arraigned at an Ogba Magistrates’ Court, Lagos for stealing.

He said the suspect, who lives in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, allegedly stole N504, 000, N350, 000 and N154,000 aboard the flight.

Alabi said the money belonged to Messrs. Olaniye and Abubakar Jimoh, his co-passengers.

He said the suspect was apprehended by vigilant passengers and crew while pilfering from luggage aboard the flight, about 11am on Saturday.

Alabi said the suspect was thereafter handed over to the command upon landing in Lagos for investigation and prosecution.
