A smart but rather unlucky robber has been arrested by the Police for stealing a motorcycle inside a Police station in Lagos.
The robber was however apprehended after he had successfully driven the motorcycle outside of the station, PM Express reports.
The incident reportedly happened at Olosha Police Division in Mushin, Lagos where the Bajaj motorcycle seized by the police was parked as exhibit.
It was gathered that the suspect had monitored the security situation at the station and saw that it was porous; he then stole the bike and escape with it.
The police then apprehended him at Alhaji Amusa Street area of Mushin by the traffic light for contravening traffic laws.
He was arrested with the bike and taken to the police station for the alleged offence. It was then that the police realised that he stole the bike from the station. He was detained and later charged before Ogba Magistrates court for stealing.
It was gathered that it was not only at Olosha police station that suspected criminals had invaded and stolen motorcycles.
Recently, a suspect sneaked into Ejigbo Police Division, stole a motorcycle and escaped. The suspect is facing trial before Ejigbo Magistrates court. This showed that even the police stations were not safe in terms of protection of lives and properties.
