The Lagos State Police Command apprehended two individuals accused of incapacitating a school's security guard through drug administration and subsequently looting the institution of property valued at millions of Naira.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this to newsmen on Wednesday in Ikeja.
He said that on December 29, 2023, the suspects bought sedatives close to the school.
According to him, they, thereafter, proceeded to the school and engaged the security guard in innocuous discussions; bought food from a nearby restaurant and drugged it before handing same to the victim.
He added that no sooner than the security man finished eating the food than he slept off, giving room for the suspects to actualise their objective.
“They constructively broke into the school’s administrative office, removed the ignition key to the school’s bus, and removed a 65-inch television set and six inverter batteries.
“They fuelled the bus with diesel found at the parking lot and drove the vehicle away. They also removed the security man’s iPhone 11 cell phone,’’ he said.
