A Nigerian man is explaining to officials of the Lagos state police Rapid Response Squad all he knows after he was arrested last Friday for raising false alarm that his car had been stolen when he actually drank himself to stupor and forgot it at a beer parlour.
The man identified as Jude, a resident of Anthony Village on the day of the incident reportedly went to the beer parlour, became drunk and forgot his car there before going home.
According to LIB, at about 3.30am the next day, he went to the police station to report that his car had been stolen from his residence. The police during its investigations, recovered the car where it was parked few meters away from the beer parlour.
All items in the car were still intact. He was detained briefly and counselled before he was allowed to go.
