Lagos State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has confirmed the return of N115,000 to a woman who lost her purse while riding on a bike.
According to the police command in a post on its official Twitter account on Thursday, November 19, RRS officers while carrying out their official duty during the evening hour of yesterday around Igando area, noticed a purse falling from a woman who was on a bike with her son. The officers reportedly tried to alert the Okada rider but he could not stop as he mistook the follow up as an attempt for his arrest.
However, the officers trailed the bike with calmness to the woman’s destination and handed the bag to her.
Naija News learnt that a Tecno mobile phone and the sum of one hundred and fifteen thousand naura was brought out of the purse and confirmed by the woman.
Reporting the incident, the police wrote: “RRS officers while on patrol this evening around Igando saw a red purse fall from a lady on a bike. They picked it up and tried signalling the rider but he mistook it for an attempt to arrest him. Gradually they followed the bike to her destination, then handed it over to her.
