At least three persons have been arrested for allegedly stealing female pants in Lapai and Gurara local government areas of Niger State.

The Spokesman for the state Police Command, Muhammadu Abubakar , said in Minna on Friday that a complaint was lodged on the matter at the Lapai Police Division on October 18.

He said the case was assigned for investigation and a 24-year-old man, Mohammed Ali, a resident of the state’s low-cost housing estate, in whose possession the pants were found, was arrested.

The command’s spokesman said: “When quizzed by the police, Ali confessed to having broken into the house of the complainant through the window and removed the pants from where they were spread.
