Legit.ng sighted a video of the official shared on the microblogging platform, Twitter, by a user identified as Gbemi Dennis. According to the caption that accompanied the video post by Dennis, the fully armed officer stole money from a purse and was captured carrying out the act of theft on a CCTV camera.
In the video, the NSCDC officer was seen the moment he walked into the store and directly aimed for a bag on the counter. He proceeded by rummaging through it and bringing out an envelope containing some amount of money.

However, as he proceeded to leave the area, it appeared he had a change of heart about leaving with all the cash. The officer returned and placed some cash into the bag before he finally took his exit.
A background voice who appeared to be a worker within the premises claimed that the bag contained N49,050, but the officer returned N27050, making it a total of N22,000 that was stolen

Several twitter users who were disturbed by the act of theft displayed by the law enforcement officer condemned his actions.
