A suspected burglar blew his own cover after he posted his own picture on his victim's Instagram account. The suspected thief had broken into the home of one Sam Abimbola in the Okota area of Lagos around 3am carting away his phones, laptop, passport; his wife's jewelleries as well as his sister-in-law's money on Tuesday. The burglar was said to have gained entry into the house through the kitchen.
Abimbola, who only noticed the burglary around 5am when he was preparing for work, told men of the Ago Palace Police Division that he had gotten a call from a friend around 7am telling him that an unknown person had posted his picture on his Instagram account.
The police confirmed that the face is well-known in the area. The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos said the matter had been transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad at the command headqurters in Ikeja. She promised that the police will track down the suspect.
