A Nigerian woman, Akudihor Jeniffer, who went on holiday in the United States of America, has been arrested for shoplifting.
KBMC reports that Akudihor, who was in the US with her three children, was arrested after a CCTV footage showed her stealing 66 different items in a shop. The footage showed her stealing clothes and accessories which she stuffed under the stroller and was pushing through the entrance of the shop.
Akudihor has been charged with felony theft, her passport seized and $2,500 has been set for her bail. The spokesperson for the Overland Park Police Department, Sgt Gary Mason said: “The officer in the report said that she was very apologetic and remorseful, and that does go a long way, and he put that in the report, so I think it does help in this situation. Everybody has a story. There’s always a lot of reasons why people do this, and it’s not for us to decide. It’s up to the courts and the judge to look at her case.”
Mason further noted that the reason behind the theft was however unknown as they could not tell if she stole the items because she had no money or not. “This certainly isn’t the way to go about it. Now she’s going to have some legal problems that she’s going to have to deal with,” Mason stated.
Meanwhile, a young Nigerian girl spent two years of her life, serving customers in Russia as her best friend sold her to a pimp.
