Not again… House maids and Robbery



A robbery syndicate which specialises in posing
as domestic servants only to rob their employers after

24 hours of being hired,
have been smashed by the Lagos state police. It was learnt that the suspects,
John Christian, Angela Ekere, Amos Daniel and Gift Christian were arrested by
the Special Anti-Robbery Squad after weeks of investigation.

According to the police, one of the suspects,
John, posed as an agent who helped people to hire domestic servants.
It was alleged that after John was called for his
services, he would bring a housemaid and handed her over to the client. It was
learnt that the new housemaid would, within 24 hours, rob the employer of money
and other valuables and share the loot with the suspect.
John, an indigene of Cross River State, said that
he was a bonafide agent, adding that he engaged in the crime only once.
He said, “I recruit domestic servants for people
and I have been in the business for over a year. Most times, when I hire a
housemaid for someone, the person refered me to another person so that is to
show you that I am genuine. Apart from that, I am also an electrician.
“Problem started after I was introduced to one
Mrs Obasi eight months ago. She called me that she needed a cook but when I got
her a cook, she sacked the girl soon after because the girl was not good at the
job. So, I decided to get her another girl.”
The father of two said less than 24 hours after
the new housemaid, Angela, resumed work, she robbed her boss of jewellery worth
N5m and a BlackBerry.
 It was
also learnt that after the robbery, Angela went to meet her husband,
Daniel, and gave him a necklace worth  N1m before proceeding to John’s
house to give him his share of the loot.
John said, “Obasi called me to inform that she
was looking for Angela and asked me to call her if I saw her. A few minutes
later, Angela came to my house with jewellery, but instead of reporting the
theft, I was tempted by the devil to conspire with her.
“I took the jewellery to a Bureau de Change
operator who bought the gold from me for N590, 000. I took N250,000, gave
Angela N250,000 and gave my wife, Gift, N30,000. I gave another friend of mine
the remaining money.”
Asked how he spent his money, he said, “I rented
a new apartment for N80,000 in Igando area of Lagos. I then travelled to my
village to enjoy myself.”
Angela however berated John for lying,
maintaining that she was contacted by him for the sole purpose of robbery.
She said, “The previous housemaid who was
employed by madam (Obasi) told John that she was not brave enough to rob so
John told her to case the house and find out where valuables were kept.
Immediately I was hired, I waited for my madam to go out and when she did, I
went straight into her room and stole all her valuables. I left her house
immediately after.
“After getting my share of N250, 000 from John, I
went to a boutique and bought clothes worth N250, 000 unfortunately, everything
has been seized by SARS men.”
 Angela’s
husband, Daniel, was also arrested by the police.
Daniel, who claimed to be a 30-year-old local
carrier, said he sold the necklace given to him by his wife for N609, 000.
He said he used the money to buy a bus for
commercial purpose but was arrested soon after.
John’s wife, who was also arrested for receiving
N30,000 from the loot, pleaded with the police to let her go as she did not
participate in the robbery.
It was learnt that the police arrested the gang
after Obasi reported the matter to SARS.
It was learnt that John had referred Angela to
another prospective victim when policemen swooped in and arrested her. It was
learnt that through her confession, the remaining suspects were arrested.
The police also arrested the bureau de change
operators, Husseini Garba and Musa Adamu, for receiving and selling stolen
property.
When contacted on the telephone, the Deputy
Police Public Relations Officer, Damasus Ozoani, confirmed the arrests to our
correspondent.
Ozoani warned employers of domestic servants to
be very careful, saying “investigations have revealed that kidnapping and
robberies are usually successful due to insider’s connivance.”
