Just recently in Lagos, 3 notorious Igbo brothers have been arrested in Lagos as they were caught allegedly selling poisonous beans to members of the public.

The brothers who have been identified as Faith Chidioke and Sunday Ogbona were arrested by policemen from the Alagbado division after being alerted by a woman, who caught applying Sniper, a poisonous insecticide on beans.


Punch gathered that, while Chidioke and Sunday were picked up on Friday, March 17, their elder brother, who owned the shop, was nabbed on Sunday when he went to the station to secure their bail. The police said 41-year-old Faith 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, March 22, 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.

18-year-old Chidioke disclosed that he wanted to preserve the beans with the insecticide to prevent it from being infested with insects. Adding that, it was his first time of putting the substance in the foodstuffs.
