We are quite familiar with highway robbery and ‘one chance’ in commercial buses but this mid-air stealing is a new one.

The Lagos Airport Police Command will on Monday arraign a male suspect who allegedly stole N1, 008,000 aboard an Air Peace flight from Abuja to Lagos.

The suspect, who lives in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, allegedly stole the sums of N504, 000, N350, 000 and 154,000 aboard the flight.

The monies belonged to one Mr Olaniye and Mr Abubakar Jimoh, who were his co-passengers on board the flight.

Luckily, the suspect was apprehended by vigilant passengers and crew while pilfering from luggage aboard the flight, at about 11am on Saturday.

He was thereafter handed over to the command upon landing in Lagos for investigation and prosecution.

The spokesperson for the command, DSP Joseph Alabi, said on Sunday in Lagos that the suspect would be arraigned before an Ogba Magistrates’ Court for stealing.
