Lawyer Whose Money Was STOLEN From His Wallet By Airport Official Writes FAAN

He wrote...

''Good day Sir/Ma,

My is Olakunle Tayo Fapohunda. 


 I am a citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I travelled from the Murtala Mohammed Airport to Heathrow Airport on Wednesday 22 December 2021 via  Virgin Atlantic flight no. VS 412.

 I passed through the scanner between 6.00am and 6.30am on that same day. I met two women who wore the Aviation Security uniform. The two women spoke Yoruba fluently. 

One is dark skinned and slim. She is not so tall. The other one is light skinned. I emptied my pockets in line with the policies and I put my wallet that was containing a sum of £1600 in the tray and I was asked to go back and bring out my second laptop which I had advertently left in my box.

 I sought to get my wallet and other items and go back but the dark skinned lady asked me to leave them and just take the laptop alone back and scan. I obeyed and went back to get my item scanned. By the time it dawned on me that I had been robbed by this officer, I had boarded and it was too late for me to disembark.

 I lost a sum of £400 to this thief and it is in light of this that I am reporting her activities and urging your office to order that the CCTV camera be replayed. It is my turn today but it would be another person's turn tomorrow. 


I urge you to please assist me through your good offices. I shall be willing and ready to answer your questions and queries. 

My details are as supplied below. My numbers are supplied below both in Nigeria and in the UK.


Thank you and please accept the assurances of my highest regards.

Olakunle Tayo Fapohunda''

    1. But there is no way you would be allowed to take suya though.. it's a meat product.

    2. my husband brings suya all the time for me ..if its well cooked or fried it can go ..

    3. No it can't - whether fried or not. Meat or meat products are not allowed from countries outside the EU. That he's been able to get away with it does not mean it's allowed. All the info is on gov.uk

  4. I never put my valuables in that tray unless it's mandatory. Your eyes must be fully open during security screening, that was how my ipad was stolen at London heathrow some years ago, in that short interval.

    I hope they apprehend these ladies. Wicked souls.

  7. That's even if those security cameras with their poor resolution are still working 🙄 Its been awhile though... hopefully the cameras would have all been changed by now.

    Sorry o... Mr Olakunle... I hope the women get caught and punished.

  9. There are thieves everywhere at the airports. Horrible set of workers. There are too many tales of woe. That place needs to be overhauled

  10. That's how they stole my gold necklace - a gift I got the night before my trip. I ran back and forth at the airport like a crazy person that day.

    For first time in my life, I placed a curse on those who stole it and it will never be broken!

    1. Left to people like you, nothing will change. Leave the man to pursue justice, we can't all be keeping silent when things go wrong.

  14. The situation is quite unfortunate, but Mr Fapohunda is responsible for the loss of his money. He should have put his wallet in his hand luggage before the scanner, instead of leaving an open wallet with money to go through the scanner alone. Money gets stolen like this in airports all over the world, and the official manning the scanners should not be held responsible for passengers' carelessness. Another traveller could have taken the money as is sometimes the case. It was wrong of him to slander the 2 ladies by the scanner for his own mistake, because the ID of the thief is not certain.
