“I want to thank the Nigeria Police for a job well-done. I thought I will never see again the items stolen from my house.

“It is amazing that with two weeks of the robbery attack, the suspects were arrested, my handset recovered.

“I usually make negative jokes about our police, but with this performance, I will never use them for negative jokes. I advise members of the public to always support the police.

“In western nations, it is the public that assists the police for information against criminals."

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that two of the suspects apprehended following an invasion at the comedian's house have been charged to court.

This event is expected to affect positively the poor regard for the police who are often accused of abusing those they have swore to protect.
