security guard

The story of the security guard that conspired with robbers to steal Boss’s N6m car has brought shivers down my spine. Is it just me or is the economy going from bad to worse?  When the very same person you bring to guard you and protect your property turns around to steal it from you, it makes you feel that nowhere is safe.

The police in Lagos State have arrested a security guard, Bala Usman, for allegedly inviting robbers to break into his boss’ apartment and steal a Honda Sports Utility Vehicle, valued at N6m according to reports from Punch.

Usman was arrested on Friday by policemen attached to the Isolo division on Ire Akari Estate in the Isolo area. Usman allegedly stole the Honda SUV’s key from his boss, whose name was not disclosed by the police, and thereafter invited two robbery suspects – Abubakar Garba and Chika Asogwa – to escape with the car.

It was learnt that the suspects had also been arrested by the police.

A source at the Isolo division said the suspects were apprehended by the police while trying to sell the vehicle at N2m.

He said:

“Usman and his boss lived in the Ikoyi area, where the boss also has a car store. The guard sometime last week stole the key of the car. He then invited the two suspects to drive it away, sell for an agreed price and bring his share.

“On Thursday, we arrested Asogwa, while he and Garba were attempting to sell the vehicle for N2m instead of the N6m market value; that was what raised suspicion. Usman was also there. The suspects had put a fake number plate, AGL 943 DP, on the vehicle.”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the arrest.

She said, “Apart from the three, one Chike Umeh and Ekene Eze, who received the stolen vehicle and helped in scouting for buyers, were also arrested by the police. The five suspects are undergoing interrogation at the division. They will soon be charged to court.”

We say, thank God the car was recovered.
