Police arrest phone thief weeks after rescue from lynching

The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command has arrested a phone thief, Chinedu Ike.

In September, a mob intercepted him at the Iyana Oworo area of the state after stealing a phone.

Ike was beaten to coma before he was rushed to the hospital by the police and discharged days later.

A statement by the RRS said on Monday, he sneaked into a car and stole a driver’s phone again at Iyana Oworo.

Ike was arrested after those who knew him hinted the owner to look for the mobile device.
