House Boy Who Stole Employer's Car, $5000 In Lagos Arrested

Ben Peters, a house help that carted away his employers valuables eleven days after employment has been apprehended by the Lagos Police Command. According to report, we were meant to understand that the houseboy was employed by Alexander Okoye, and his wife, Njideka Okoye a seventy-three-year-old retiree on October 12th 2018.

However on October 24th 2018, the suspect stole the couples valuables including their Toyota Camry saloon car 2008 model, five thousand United States Dollars, six packet shirts and a Motorola Android phone.

The distraught couple filed a petition to the Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, CP Edgal Imohimi. Based on their complaint, the CP directed CSP Kemi Adedeji and team attached to the Command's Human rights section to launch a manhunt for the fleeing househelp.

Confessing to the crime, the suspect narrated that he noted where Mr. Okoye usually hid his bedroom key and to gain access to it, he needed to duplicate the living room key; so he went ahead and made a copy of the living room key.  He said on October 23rd, he made up his mind to break into the couple's bedroom.

And to do so undetected, he disconnected the CCTV camera that would have recorded his activities, picked up the bedroom key and constructively broke into the couple's room, stole their valuables and thereafter, drove off with their car.

The suspect added that robbing the couple was easy for him because the house help they dismissed before employing him, one Matthew Johnson Abam,  was a member of his thieving  syndicate and he had furnished him with relevant information about the couple even before he came to live with them.

Both suspects are currently undergoing interrogation with a view to helping the Police, arrest their partners in crime and recover the stolen items.
