Five persons including a 15-year-old boy have been arrested in the Ojo Area of Lagos for stealing female underwear.
A 15-year-old boy who was among the arrested suspects confessed to have been stealing female underwear in the area for about a year.
The teenager, Chukwajekwu Eziigbo, was arrested alongside three other teenagers and an adult he alleged he had been taking the stolen underwear to.
He was said to have been sighted by a resident who had gone out to urinate. The resident saw him collecting underwear on a cloth line in a building in the Ojo area of the state.
The resident alerted his neighbors who subsequently arrested the teenager and handed him over to policemen.
During interrogation, the suspect said, “I have been stealing female pants for about a year now, from different streets in Ojo.
“Thereafter, I would take them to some women who would give me stipends. I don’t know what they do with the pants,” he said.
Further investigation led to the arrest of four other persons: Chidinma Obietuake, 17; Chikwaka Chidima Jemfe, 17; Gold Enyinnaya, 23 and Akomas Amarachi, 26years.
The suspects are all residents of the Ilufe area of Ojo.
