A man was arrested and charged with theft after he made off with a woman’s pregnant dog, police in Nigeria said.
Lagos State Police said that they arrested 20-year-old Victor Ige on Friday, after being accused of stealing the dog worth N150,000 ($932).
Ige, who resides at 70 Adeniji Adele Street, stole the four-year-old white dog called Susie, from its owner, Adebisi Adepoju. Prosecutors told a court that the defendant took the pregnant dog without permission.
The incident began when the suspect told the victim that he would like to take the dog out for a walk. Ige took the dog but never returned.
Ige faces three years in jail if convicted of the crime. Ige was released after posting N100, 000 ($621) bail.
