Men of the Nigeria Police in Lagos have arrested and detained a security man guarding the home of comedian Bright Okpocha, aka Basketmouth.
Robbers had two days ago stormed Basketmouth’s house at Lekki area of Lagos. The bandits were said to have collected his phones, two I-pads, shoes, jewellery and bags. They also removed the CCTV while going.
He was robbed barely an hour after returning from the club. It was gathered that his security guard bolted after he realised that bandits had invaded the home. A police source said:
“He came home about 1:30am and by 2:15am, the robbers came. It appeared his home has a central door. He left the door open for his security guard to carry out one or two duties.
It was through that door they came into his home. But the security guard was arrested because he fled and did not alert the residents or the police.”
According to New Telegraph, the police source said Basketmouth has asked the police to release the securityman because he and his wife trusted the man. It was learnt that police reached his home about five minutes after they were alerted.
“But the robbers had long gone before we were alerted. When asked why Basketmouth did not call police earlier, he said he did not want a shootout.”
