Uche Soroibe from Ideato in Imo State has been arrested for attempting to poison his boss and his family members using the Sniper Insecticide.
The house help who was paraded while holding the Sniper he tried using to kill his boss claimed he wanted to use it to commit suicide.
Upon further interrogation, Uche confessed to trying to kill his boss’ family after losing N750k which belonged to the person who introduced him to fraudsters. Uche said the fraudsters he came across at the Oyingbo area of Lagos State promised to refund the money after using it for a business.
The house help said he only met the fraudsters once after he got the account number to pay the money into.
When he realized that he has lost the cash, he attempted killing his boss’ family with Sniper. Nothing happened at his first attempt while on the second attempt, his boss’s wife discovered and poured the soup away. He was however not lucky on his third attempt.
