The Lagos State Police Command is investigating a reported increase in cases of phone theft where victims have to pay to retrieve their phones.


This development followed a viral video by a Nigerian film director, Biodun Stephen, who had raised the alarm in a video posted on her Instagram page, calling on security agencies and the government to curb the menace.


Reacting to the viral video, the Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated that the Lagos State Government and Police will investigate the issue, to fish out culprits and put a lasting end to the practice.


He also called on residents to assist security forces with adequate and verified information, in the battle against crime and criminality.
