The recharge card thief

According to a Facebook user, Olayinka Ayodeji Awoyemi, the healthy looking man had gone to an office complex where he told the lady selling the cards that he owned an office inside the complex and wanted to buy all the cards she had available, only to attempt sneaking away when the girl saw him and raised an alarm.

"So this plum middle age man (thief), was caught in my office complex today claiming to a young lady selling recharge cards, he owns an office in the complex and one of the SUVs parked in the complex premises.

He then told the lady to bring all her recharge cards and told her to sit somewhere in the compound to calculate the total money while he informed his secretary to bring her the money estimated to be around N44, 000.

He even sent the security guard to get him 5 pure water (sachet water), that they need water in his office!

After that, he climbed the stairs into the building, returned and tell the young lady that her money is on the way, that she should wait for his secretary."

"Very quickly this same man advanced to the gate and jumped into a Keke Napep but luckily, the lady who was highly observant, grabbed him by his shirt, pulled him off the Keke and screamed on him.

He was then caught, given a nd handed over to the Bode Thomas Police Division, Lagos."
