The Lagos State Police Command is on the trail of a suspected burglar who allegedly posted his picture on the Instagram account of his victim. The command is working on the lead that the suspect, whose name had yet to be identified, mistakenly posted the picture with one of the phones reportedly stolen from the victim, Sam Abimbola.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the suspect had sneaked into the victim’s residence on Ago Palace Way, Okota, Lagos, at about 3am on Tuesday, carting away phones, a laptop and a passport.
The burglar was said to have gained entry into the apartment through the kitchen. He also reportedly made away with Abimbola’s wife’s jewellery and the identity card of his sister-in-law, who lived with the family. While lamenting the loss, Abimbola reportedly got a call at about 7am from a friend, who alerted him to a picture posted with one of the stolen phones on his (Abimbola’s) Instagram page. Read more
