A 28-year-old guard and a 200 level student of the University of Lagos studying philosophy, Paul Onazi, recently robbed his bosses ─ Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Ekpesi ─ who live in Gowon Estate in the Egbeda area of Lagos, of their Toyota Camry car and jewellery. Onazi, who occupied a mini flat on the couple’s premises, and his friend, who is still at large, committed the act around 4.30pm on Sunday, January 25, 2015 when his bosses had gone to church.
They broke into the couple’s apartment and made off with foreign currencies, laptops and phones, among other valuables – all of which were valued at N9m.
Prior to the robbery incident, Onazi reportedly earned N30,000 per month, apart from being given three square meals a day and had been living with the couple for years. The crime was said to have been reported to policemen attached to the Gowon Estate Police station, leading to Onazi’s arrest. The police said the car and other stolen items had been recovered while efforts were being made to track down the fleeing accomplice. It was, however, learnt that the money had yet to be recovered.
