Dec 11, 2014 – 3 Nigerian Police Officers Jailed In Lagos After Robber Drugged Them At Hotel & Stole AK47 Rifles, Bullets From Them

3 Lagos-based policemen have been jailed for negligence.

Yesterday, 47-year-old Sergeant Felix Okwa, 46-year-old Corporal Ogun Romanus and 34-year-old Sunday Okoh were sentenced to 2 years imprisonment over negligence that resulted in a suspected robber stealing their AK-47 rifles.

The three cops who were attached to Ishashi Police Division of Lagos State Police Command, were said to be on patrol on December 12, 2011 at 11.30p.m., when they received a call from an unknown guest, named Kezzy, who invited them for supper at Regional Hotel, also in Ishashi, claiming he wanted to reward them for a job they did for him.

The unknown guest was said to have fed them with food laced with drugs, after which they slept off and their weapons, three AK-47 rifles and 90 live ammunition were stolen.

The hotel manager reported the matter at the Ishashi Police Station after which the unconscious policemen were arrested and later charged to court.

Gullible Policemen.
