Airplane passenger allegedly caught ste@ling N1m onboard a flight from Abuja to Port Harcourt

Mr Vitalis Nwabuzor who was on-board Abuja-PHC flight P47192 on July 27, 2023, has been exposed by Air Peace to have allegedly st@len one million naira but was apprehended afterwards.

The airline’s spokesperson, Stanley Olisa, revealed in a statement issued on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, that Nwabuzor stol£ the said amount contained in a brown envelope but was caught by the owner of the money and with the intervention of the airline’s staff.

“During the flight, Nwabuzor took another passenger’s computer bag from the overhead cabin, took the brown envelope containing the money, put the computer bag in another luggage compartment and moved to an empty seat at the back of the aircraft.

He was one of the first few to disembark despite the announcement of a proper disembarkation sequence by the crew. He was eventually caught and the money was retrieved from him. Different currencies in different denominations were found on him,” Olisa said.

The passenger was handed over to the security operatives of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria, FAAN, for onward transfer to the Police for further investigations. The police confirmed to have released him on bail and said the chance of prosecution is slim as the owner of the money is unwilling to follow up.
