Shock As Security Guards Allegedly Robbed Their Boss For Delaying Salaries

The Nigerian Police in Lagos State have arrested two security guards, identified as Kingsley Asuquo and Isaac Edet, for robbing a lawyer, Prof Joseph Mbadugha, who allegedly said they committed the offence over delay in their salaries.

According to a report by PUNCH Metro, Mbadugha, who hired the guards from Strongcity Security Services, was allegedly attacked while working at his office on Johnvic Igbanogo Street, in the Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos State.

In a statement released on Monday, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said the command mobilised operatives to rescue Mbadugha and arrest the suspects.

He added that the suspects, during interrogation, said they connived with others at large to rob the victim for not paying their salaries as and when due.

Oti said, “The command had on Saturday, October 13, 2018, around 5.30pm, received information from a credible source that some bandits held one Joseph Mbadugha hostage in his office at JohnVic Igbanogo Street, Lekki Phase One, Lagos, and that the armed men wore Strongcity Security Services uniform.

“Based on the information, operatives from the Maroko Police Station and F-SARS Ikeja, jointly mobilised to the scene. On sighting the operatives, the hoodlums ran in different directions to avoid being arrested. But one of them, who gave his name as Isaac Edet, was nabbed at the scene.

“After interrogation, he led detectives to arrest his partner in crime, one Kingsley Asuquo. Interestingly, both suspects are workers of Strongcity Security Services. They claimed that the victim did not pay their salaries as and when due, hence they planned with others at large to rob and even kill him if necessary.

“They succeeded in dispossessing the victim of a bag containing a laptop, a cash sum of N40,000, three cheque booklets, one iPhone 6. All these items were recovered from the suspects in the course of investigation.”

Oti said the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, had directed the head of the command’s intelligence unit to fish out the fleeing members of the gang.
