Akeem’s artificial leg

Mr. Akeem who is a father of three confessed to the crime saying that he came all the way from Ijebu Ode, Ogun state to steal and revealed that it was not his first time coming to Lagos to steal.

According to PM news, Mr. Akeem met his waterloo after he removed his artificial leg, climbed the ceiling of the storey building and broke into two shops.

However, the security men on duty came to the place and found the artificial leg with jeans on it. The security men wondered who kept it at that particular period. Other security men on duty were alerted, they began to comb the area and Akeem was found inside the plaza ceiling.

He was forced to come down and he confessed that he was a robber. He pleaded with them not to kill him and he was later handed over to the police at Shasha Division.

He has been charged before the Magistrates court sitting in Ejigbo for burglary.
