20-year-old barman, Precious Victor, has been arrested by Officers of the Lagos State Police Command, for allegedly killing his boss Mr. Tajudeen Oso, over N63,000.
Precious who was working with King’s Bar located at Anifowose, Mushin area of Lagos, alleged that he only wanted to threaten his boss a little, get N63,000 from him and run away. He then brought his friend Kelechi, and a customer named Ahmed into the picture.
However, Precious' boss, Mr. Tajudeen who refused to be threatened, got stabbed twice in his
stomach and bled to death on the premises of his bar.
Precious who confessed that he killed his boss, said; “I live in an accommodation on
the premises of the bar. Kelechi lives with me as well. I was actually introduced to my boss (the victim) by Kelechi’s boss. We discussed the plan and when Ahmed, whom I had known as a regular customer, came to the bar to drink on Friday, I also told him about the plan and he said he was interested.
The plan was only to threaten my boss, and tell him we needed N63,000. We had no intension of killing him. That day, I was hiding in the kitchen when Kelechi put our plan in motion. But something went wrong. He hit my boss in the head with a bottle. .
When I heard noise, I came out. My boss then said, ‘Precious, you people want to kill me?’ I said no but he came towards me and bit me in the stomach. He was dragging me and would not let go.
Kelechi was dragging him so that he could free me but when he did not, Kelechi took a knife and stabbed him twice in the stomach.”
According to the Punch, the Lagos State commissioner of police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, disclosed that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as investigation into the case was concluded.
