SHOCKING CRIME: POLICE ARREST THIEF INSIDE IRT OFFICE IN LAGOS
By Uche Ogbonnaya
AN informant who operated within the Southwest Annex Office of the IGP, Intelligence Response Team, IRT, Ikeja, was arrested yesterday after he stole a cellphone belonging to an operative, plugged to a socket for charging.
Timeswatch gathered that the light- fingered criminal smartly unplugged the phone and stole it, but was outsmarted by the prying CCTV camera in front of the Commander’s office, the reason the bold thief was immediately nabbed by IRT men.
People inside the police platform who witnessed the arrest expressed surprise at the development, and wondered why anyone would dream of coming into an outfit occupied by highly gallant, tactical and strategic junior and senior Nigeria police officers to steal.
The situation has shown that the IRT does not leave any stone unturned when it comes to technology and latest techniques in crime detection, investigation and fighting.
