Boy Who Stole His Sister’s Panties Caught In Bolade Oshodi
A boy, who stole his sister’s panties, was caught in Bolade, Oshodi, Lagos, on Tuesday.
The young man wore the panties on his boxers, before wearing his jeans trousers in order to conceal the underwear.
But he was eventually caught and handed over to the police for further interrogation.
Underwear theft has become a recent trend for young Nigerian boys who are said to use them for rituals.
Numerous reports have surfaced in the last few months about ladies who become mentally unstable or even dead after their panties are used by 'yahoo boys' to make charms to aid their fraudulent practices.
There have been recent cries for police to charge anyone arrested for the crime with murder but police PRO, Frank Mba, said in a recent interview that it was impossible, because police cannot investigate whatever is “not empirically verifiable except when there is convergence of the act like cases of murder or an attempt or related crimes.”
It remains to be seen how this crime which is now popular with young people would eventually be rectified.
