3 brothers who sold beans preserved with Sniper arrested in Lagos

Three siblings trading in beans on Adenekan Street, Alagbado, Lagos State, have been arrested by the police after they allegedly preserved the beans with poisonous insecticide Sniper and still sold it to members of the public.

It was learnt that the traders Faith Ogbona, Chidioke Ogbona and Sunday Ogbona were arrested by policemen from the Alagbado division after being alerted by a woman, who caught Chidioke applying Sniper, an insecticide, on the beans.

While Chidioke and Sunday were picked up on Friday, their elder brother, who owned the shop, was nabbed on Sunday when he went to the station to secure their bail.

PUNCH Metro reports that the shop had also been sealed off.

The police said 41-year-old Faith had wanted to influence his brothers’ release by allegedly offering the divisional police officer a N500,000 bribe, which the latter rejected.

The suspects, who hail from Ebonyi State, were paraded on Wednesday at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja with some bags of the “poisonous beans” and some bottles of Snipers recovered from the shop.

Eighteen-year-old Chidioke told Punch that he wanted to preserve the beans with the insecticide to prevent it from being infested with insects.

He said it was his first time of putting the substance in the foodstuffs, claiming that he deduced his “preservation method” from the use of Sniper to kill rodents.
