Petrol As Souvenir: Police Arrests And Arraigns Prime Suspect
The prime suspect who distributed kegs of petrol as souvenirs at a party held at Havilah Events Centre, Victoria Island on 4th March, 2022, has been arrested and subsequently arraigned.
A statement released by CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, spokesperson of the state police command, says the suspect, Ogbulu Chidinma Pearl, was arraigned on March 14 at the Special Offences (Mobile) Court of Lagos State in the Ikeja Magistrate District at Oshodi on a four-count charge of conduct likely to cause a breach of peace, endangering human life by distributing combustible matter in a public gathering, intent to do harm to another and unlawfully carrying on the business of storage and containerising petroleum product without a permit.
Recall that following the viral video of the distribution of petrol as a souvenir recently, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, had ordered the arrest of the suspect who was then at large. She was granted bail and the case was adjourned to March 24th.
