A 26-year-old bus conductor, Nurudeen Suleiman, has been
reported to have allegedly jumped into the Atlantic Ocean in
Lagos.
According to reports, Sulaiman decided to jump into the ocean in
order to escape from police arrest after stealing N40,000 on March 30
at about 4.30 p.m. at the Bar Beach on Victoria Island, Lagos.
However, the accused was later apprehended by some security men
when he came out of the water and was on Tuesday charged before a
Tinubu Magistrates’ Court, Lagos.
Suleiman, whose address is unknown, is facing a charge of stealing
before Magistrate Salama Matepo.
The prosecutor, SP Austin Orji said the accused had approached the
complainant, one Mr Segun for some financial assistance.
“The man had brought out some naira notes to give Suleiman and in
the process, some fell off.
“The accused on the pretext of helping to pick the money kept N40, 000
and handed over the rest to the complainant.
“The complainant suspected a foul play and before he knew it,
Suleiman had jumped into the Atlantic Ocean to avoid being caught.
“He stayed in the ocean for about 30 minutes to allow the divers that
had attempted to arrest him leave,” Orji said.
Suleiman, however, pleaded not guilty.
In his ruling, the magistrate granted the accused bail in the sum of
N20, 000 with one surety in like sum and adjourned the case to April
23.
