An Inspector of the Nigerian Police Force attached to the Railway Police Command in Ebute-Meta, Lagos state, has been put behind bars for allegedly stealing plantain.
A source who spoke to a national newspaper said Joseph (not real name), was caught while trying to hide bunches of plantain in two trucks.
The source said, “The inspector is attached to the Railway Police Command. On Tuesday around 12pm, he went to the commissioner’s lodge and harvested plantains without any authority.
“As if that was not bad enough, he brought two trucks into the command to take the plantain away. He wanted to cover up the plantains with some iron sheets so that he could take them through the gate without being detected.
“He was on this when some workers at the Railway Command called the attention of the authorities to it and he was arrested.”
