Dismissed ​female ​Police officer arrested for stealing ​​car

A police corporal, Funmilayo Balogun, has been arrested for stealing a Honda Accord car worth N5 million​,​ which she sold to unsuspecting client.

The 35-year-old suspect was on Wednesday paraded by the Ogun State Police Command. She was wearing a police uniform with the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police.

She was dismissed in 2010 by the Ondo State Command for presenting fake result to get police employment.

    The last check shows this is a PDP state.

    Right on point…..

    Lai Mohammed, you are spot on. This is one of the very best response to Jonathan and PDP. Let him and his party lick their wounds. They have forgotten that they would need to come back to all Nigerians that they did all they could to turn against each other. Nigerians now know very well the real type of person he is and nobody is ready to be fooled again. This should serve as a lesson to future leaders with small minds.

    Hahahaha. Nigerians are slowly coming to a deep realization about the extent of the extortion and corruption capacity of Jonathan and his gang of criminals. Reducing fuel prices means Jonathan will reduce the amount he sets aside in the Nigerian budget which he loot with his friends and families in the name of fuel subsidy. Nigerians still do not see how the corruption they allowed to fester under the evil regime of Jonathan is coming back to bite them in the behind. I hope Nigerians continue to hide their heads in sand because if they vote Jonathan back to power, whatever they experienced in his 5 year rule so far, will be worse. No evil person has ever willingly given up being evil. Expecting Jonathan to suddenly make a u-turn is like wishing for the sun to be housed in your backyard.

    Okupe, FFK and Metuh ignorantly gifted BUHARI the presidency by tagging APC as an Islamic party, thereby, making it appealing to an average muslim. APC then played their cards right by bringing in Osinbajo to balance the equation. Now it’s a muslim/christian ticket. PDP should ahead and be promoting Jonathan has a christian president, they think you can win election in Nigeria by turning against the other religion.

    Dumbo is simply an Ijaw President…
    He pandered to Tompolo when he did not commission a $16bn gas project because it was built on Itsekiri land.
    His goons coined, “Janjaweed Party” and “Islamic Party” in reference to the opposition… yet, he did not call them to order. They coined, “Yoruba Christians/Yoruba Muslims” and even made derogatory CD’s to that effect… Dumbo gulped ogogoro! Dumbo himself was not missing in action in the ethno-religious slandering of perceived enemies, he called leaders of a certain region “rascals”…called others, “terrorists”. Just yesterday, he called an ex-President a, “motor park tout”. Dumbo told Baba Iyabo he doesn’t care about Boko Haram because, “they are my enemies killing off themselves”. So, if the head is a bigot who lacks decorum, why blame the mouth for speaking with morning breath? The criminal cabal has Metuh, FFK, Abati, Okupe, Maku and virtually every vuvuzela in their fold to blame for their bad breath to Nigerians, no use shedding alligator tears now… bcos dis one no even qualify for the cliché Lai Mohammed used. Ntoor!

    Katsina people should not be divided on this. The Government should come out to clearly state the necessity of this road through ECWA church. There is nothing wrong with demolition of a church or mosque but only if it is beneficial and necessary. If it happens to be for a good course then the church should be compensated and no need to make politics out of it otherwise the Govt should let the church be and avoid tension
