Is Nigeria's poor economy pushing people over board or is this just a clear case of greed?

Nemesis has caught up with a couple in Lagos after they were caught on camera robbing commuters.

The couple must have thought they had gotten away with the act but thanks to a mobile Closed Circuit Television, CCTV, they were arrested.

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command confirmed the incident.

The police said the suspects – Segun Latoye and Toyin Samuel –were arrested on Friday after they were caught on camera three times in Oshodi dispossessing passersby of their belongings.

“On the last footage, they dispossessed a young lady of her bag containing two mobile phones and some amount of money.

“They were captured by camera hurriedly boarding a bus after hypnotising their victim. However, the lady regained her consciousness a few minutes later and reported the incident to RRS officers who contacted the mobile CCTV van for footage of the area where the incident took place.

“Their pictures were shown to selected people in Oshodi. Those people were asked to contact RRS officers whenever they noticed  the suspects in Oshodi.

“The suspects, who claimed to be husband and wife, confessed to the crime after seeing their video,” the RRS said on Sunday.
