A private security guard has been arrested by the police at Isheri Oshun, Lagos, Nigeria, for invading his employer’s bedroom to steal.

The guard, Christian Ifede, was alleged to have duplicated Olubayo Oyadiran’s bedroom keys and stole $5,000 (five thousand dollars).

Apart from the dollars, he was also alleged to have stolen another N600,000.

Not satisfied with the amount he had stolen, he allegedly went into the bedroom the third time to steal again, not knowing that his employer had set a trap for him.

P.M.NEWS gathered that the accused was caught redhanded in the bedroom, while attempting to steal another money.

On interrogation by the police, he reportedly confessed that he has been giving part of the money to his friend, Audu Timothy, to save for him.

He and Audu were charged before the Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court for stealing.

They pleaded not guilty to the charge and the magistrate, Mrs. S. O. Solebo, granted them bail in the sum of N1 million with two sureties.

The matter has been adjourned till 15 December, 2010 for hearing.
