March 24, 2017 – 3 Brothers Arrested For Using Sniper Poison To Preserve Beans Offer Police N500,000 Bribe – Fatai Owoseni

3 siblings, beans traders on Adenekan Street, Alagbado, Lagos State, have been arrested by the police for allegedly selling “poisonous beans” to members of the public.

The police said 41-year-old Faith Ogbona had wanted to influence his brothers’ release by allegedly offering the divisional police officer a N500,000 bribe, which the latter rejected.

The suspects, who hail from Ebonyi State, were paraded on Wednesday at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja with some bags of the “poisonous beans” and some bottles of Snipers recovered from the shop.

The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said the suspects would be charged to court after investigation.

“The excuse the owner of the shop gave was that he was mixing pesticide with beans and that he had been selling it like that. He approached the DPO, thinking he could easily settle the case and get the two other suspects released. He offered her N500,000, but she rejected it,” the CP added.

The shop belonging to the suspects had been sealed off by police.

    I CAN’T just imagine how these wicked traders felt when each customer patronized them, knowing that that very customer would not come back again because the customer would die from food poisoning! How mean could people be in their quest for money! May God punish them all, including that other man that wanted to bribe the police officer!

    GOING forward, let it be well publicized that these very people had used the deadly poison to preserve their beans so that those who had already bought from them but had not consumed it could be saved.

    Mon you truly make me laugh. True talk. In Nigeria then change taking place. But if is true then may God bless that policewoman because no amount of 500k will rescued the public from that poison.

    Again in a way yes they may have used it pesticides, is the level of their own brain thinking is correct, but there were wrong. They can always used dried small peppers. Cheaper and good to keep insects out of beans.

    FIRST OF ALL, does it mean, there was no other recommended preservatives available that they had to use snipper as an option?

    That other fellow that came up with the bribe thing should be equally arrested pronto. He‘s one of the many bad eggs in the society painting the image of the country black and promoting evil and corruption.

    I take a stroll…
