Security Guard Locks Blind Employer In Room, Steals Cash

A security guard, Miracle Lamber, who allegedly locked up his blind employer in a room and bolted with his N50,000 cash, was on Wednesday arraigned in an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

The 21-year-old accused was arraigned before Magistrate Mrs Y.O. Ekogbule on a two-count charge of breach of peace and stealing.

Lamber, who resides with the complainant, however, denied the charges and was admitted to bail of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Clement Ikuoimose, said that the accused committed the offences on Oct. 18, 2016, in Ifako-Ijaye, Lagos.

Ikuoimose said that the accused stole N50,000 belonging to his employer, Mr Ayo Fagbemila, and ran away to Anambra.

“The accused, who was employed as a security guard and housekeeper to the complainant, disappeared with his money after only two months of employment.

“The accused conducted his self in a manner likely to cause breach of peace by locking up the complainant in a room and going away with the key without even considering his condition.

“Fortunately for the complainant, the man who introduced the accused for employment, came to visit him.

“When he discovered that the complainant was locked up inside one of his rooms, the man broke the door to gain entrance into the room.

“The accused was arrested after four months of his disappearance.”

NAN reports that if found guilty of stealing, the accused could be sentenced to three years’ imprisonment, according to the provisions of Section 285.

Magistrate Ekogbule adjourned the case to March 22.
