The Eagle Online reports that the guard, Tunde Ajibike, 27, and the maid, simply identified as Angela, would have gotten away with the crime, but for the sloppy handling of the robbery operation by the three men who stormed the victim’s home on February 10, 2015.
The robbers, while robbing the house, carelessly mentioned the name of Ajibike, unaware that the mistress of the house, Onyeka Uzoamaka, 35, a nurse, although petrified, was paying serious attention to them.
The woman said the three men stormed her Ago Palace, Lagos State home around 8pm, armed to the teeth.
Uzoamaka said that the robbers robbed her of N100,000, jewelries and several handsets.
The bandits tied her with a rope to her bed and inflicted injury on her left ear.
When they disappeared into the darkness, the angry woman confronted Ajibike.
The security man tried to deny it, but tipped his hands when he disappeared the following day from his duty post, taking all his possessions.
The guard ran away after Uzoamaka went to the hospital to treat her injured ear.
The victim then lodged a report with the police.
The police immediately went after the guarantor who signed for Ajibike when he came to work as a guard.
The man took police to Ibadan in Oyo State where Ajibike was arrested.
He was arrested by a team of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja, Lagos State Police Command, led by the Officer-in-Charge of SARS, Abba Kyari.
Ajibike said: “I started working as a security guard for the woman at the monthly salary of N20,000. I was given a small room in the compound.
“Part of my duties was to cut grasses, iron clothes, wash cars and sometimes even wash clothes. They feed me three times a day.
“They used to dash me money sometimes. They were very generous to me.
“But it was the house girl, Angela, who called me one day. She said that we should rob our employer.
“She said the woman has money, but was very stingy. She said we should arrange boys to rob the house.”
Ajibike also disclosed that he got the security job through the housemaid.
He confessed to the crime and how he organised three others to carry out the operation.
Recounting how he and Angela hatched and perfected the crime, Ajibike said he gave the housemaid the phone numbers of the robbers and she finalised the deal.
