A man, who worked as a cleaner in a building on Tony Oghenejode Close, off Omorinre Johnson Street, in the Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos State, has allegedly led a three-man gang to rob two residents ─ a lawyer, Adaku Ufere and her brother, Chukwuebuka ─ in the neighbourhood.
It was learnt that the cleaner, identified only as Jasper, connived with other suspects, Monday Daniel and Joseph Timileyin, to burgle the flat of the residents around 3am on June 23, carting away property worth N650,000.
Some of the stolen items include, two laptops, a wrist watch and an iphone.
It was gathered that the lawyer raised the alarm as the robbers left, leading to Daniel’s arrest by security guards. He was reportedly nabbed with the laptops and was handed over to the police. It was learnt that he later led the police to apprehend Timilehin.
