Six armed robbery suspects, who also operate a recruitment agency, have narrated how they drugged the former Minister of Finance, Dr. Kalu Idika Kalu, before dispossessing him of over N10 million valuables.

The suspects, Peter Uboh Obi, Samuel Ogana, Joy Omagu, and Sunday Emmanuel, were arrested at their various hideouts by operatives of the State Intelligence Bureau of the Lagos Command.

Their arrest was sequel to various complaints from victims to the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi.

Peter Uboh Obi, 33, who works as a chef at Dr. Kalu’s house, said he was paid N100,000 for the role he played in the operation.

According to him, he was compelled to drug his boss, Kalu because he was being owed N60,000.

He said: “I started working for Dr. Kalu about 10 months ago. I knew Samuel Emmanuel, who introduced me to the gang in Ogoja, Cross River State. We have been friends before I came to Lagos. One day, he told me that I could make a lot of money from my boss if only I would agree to do what I was told to do. He promised to introduce me to his friends. He introduced me to the gang. We met at a bar on the Island. They were three. They told me that they would give me a sleeping pill and that all I needed to do was to mix it in his coffee.”

The chef said he put the pill in the coffee he served his master, after which, Dr. Kalu slept off.

He said: “I stayed away when the gang arrived. They searched all the rooms and went away with a lot of valuables. They later came back to give me N100,000.”

Another member of the gang, Joy Omagu, said she was recruited as a house-help by the gang and posted to the home of a Lagos socialite, one Augustina Seriki, at Lekki. She confessed administering sedative in a cup of coffee, which she gave to her boss.

She said: “I was recruited into the organisation by my brother, Sunday Emmanuel. Before I was posted to the home, the gang lectured me on what to do. They told me to first of all gain the trust of the woman I was going to work with. They told me that the woman was wicked and had treated her former house-help badly and it was a pay-back time.

“That day, Sunday sent me a sachet of Valium 5 and instructed me to grind and mix it in my madam’s coffee. This I did. We also sprayed some substance on her bed that would enable her sleep very well. Unluckily for us, she felt uncomfortable and asked me to change the bed sheet.”

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi said the suspects would soon he charged to court. (The Guardian)
