After torturing and violently assaulting the victim, the robbers who were masked, armed with a gun, and an axe, made away with his ATM card after coercing him to disclose his PIN.

“A few days after the robbery, the suspects using the ATM, unlawfully and fraudulently withdrew the sum of N1,8050,making a total of N2, 729, 850.00, stolen from the victim’s bank account without authorization.

“The suspects feared for their arrest and in order to cover up the criminal act, threatened to kill the victim if he failed to leave the country or ever disclosed what happened to anyone.

“Unperturbed by the threat but pained by the injuries sustained, the victim after recovering from the trauma, reported the robbery through a petition to SCIID, Panti.

“Consequent upon the receipt of the petition, Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of SCIID , Adegoke Fayoade, immediately assigned seasoned detectives to investigate the incident.

“Painstaking investigation led to the arrest of the perpetrators. Upon interrogation, a member of the two-man armed robbery gang, Oluwasegun Olusoji, confessed to the crime and gave a vivid account of how the operation was jointly carried out.

“Following the conclusion of investigation, CP Abiodun Alabi, has directed that the case should be charged to court. The CP, however, admonishes employers to always carry out a thorough background check on their domestic staff before employing them, and be wary of criminal neighbours.”
