Lazio midfielder Ogenyi Onazi is the lips of many in Rome after chasing down a mugger and handing him over to local cops!
There was no way the Nigerian was going to let a local villain get away with stealing from a Rome tourist.
In a conversation on LazioStyle Radio monitored by calitown.com, Onazi who chased a local villain getting away after stealing from a tourist, informed that he “was having dinner …near to the Termini Station and there were some tourists sitting next to us,” and “I saw a boy and immediately felt due to his suspicious behaviour that he wanted to steal something. I didn’t even have time to tell my brother that he had already snatched the tourist’s wallet and run off. “I noticed it, so I ran after him, but stayed on the other side of the street. I ran for 300 metres”, before saying he caught up with the mugger who sensing the chase, left the wallet under a car.
Onazi chased and caught the mugger, brought him back to the restaurant, avoiding the ire of the people around there and told the restaurant owner to call the police as the wallet was handed back to the lady who was already in tears as the wallet was full of money.
His show of courage is earning him headline news in major papers in Rome who all agree that the lad did well to come to the aid of the lady.
