According to @saswordus, the arrested man told the Lagos policemen that he was given the phones to deliver to some people in the village. However after the bus driver waited for one hour as he tried resolving the issue with the policemen alongside others, he had to leave without the boy.
His tweets reads;

There was also a case of police brutality few days ago, as it was reported that the Lagos Police command arrested an operative of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State, Charles Omotosho for threatening to kill some Nigerians.
Charles was arrested after one Ifeoluwa Adegoke reported the case to the police and shared her experience on Twitter. This came as she made a transfer of N5000 cash to the officer to release her friends. Adegoke said she was forced to part with N5,000 to save her life and that of her colleagues, who were accosted by the policemen around 1.20pm while going for a photo shoot.
The victim, who shared a snapshot evidence of the fund transfer on Twitter and the photo of one of the policemen, alleged that the operatives threatened to kill them.
