He added that an NGO paid Yusuf’s fine after learning that he was detained for failing to pay the fine imposed by the court.

The officer stated that Yusuf was arrested again by a Rapid Response Squad (RRS) agent for breaking into the Lagos State Fire Department headquarters.

According to Hundeyin, Josef stole the valve covers from an old fire engine that was being repaired.
