Drama as passenger is nabbed for ‘stealing n1 million’ on board Air Peace flight

There was a mild drama on board an Air Peace flight following the theft of N1 million of a passenger by another passenger.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Spokesperson for the airline, Stanley Olisa, said the incident took place on board the Abuja-PHC flight P47192 on July 27.

Olisa said the suspect was arrested by security operatives of the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and handed over to the police for further investigations.

He said the suspect stole the amount contained in a brown envelope but was caught by the owner of the money with the intervention of the airline’s staff.

Olisa explained that during the flight, the passenger took another passenger’s computer bag from the overhead cabin And removed a brown envelope containing the money, and moved to an empty seat at the back of the aircraft.

Olisa said the suspect was one of the first few to disembark despite the announcement of a proper disembarkation sequence by the crew.

He said the suspect was eventually caught and the money retrieved from him, with different currencies in different denominations found on him.

Olisa said that the police later confirmed to have released him on bail, but that the chance of prosecution was slim as the owner of the money was unwilling to follow up.
