Ghanaians Arrested For Robbing And Bathing Truck Driver With Acid

Two Ghanaians have been arrested by the Inspector-General of Police-Intelligence Response Team (IRT), for allegedly robbing a truck driver of his vehicle and goods and bathing him with acid.

The Force spokesman, DCP Jimoh Moshood confirmed the arrest to newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos, stressing that the suspects carried out the crime in Edo on Dec. 9, while they were arrested in Enugu State.

Moshood said that the suspects allegedly poured raw acid on Taiwo Adesanya after robbing him at the Olukwu area of Benin City of his truck with goods.
He said that the suspects, Eric Aidan and Matthew Kwasha, are notorious criminals who specialise in killing their victims with raw acid after dispossessing them of their belongings, especially vehicles.

DCP Moshood who said that the suspects were currently being detained at IRT Cell in Ikeja , Lagos, noted that their mode of operation was to seek employment as driver and conductor in haulage companies.

He said while in such company, they study the company and perfect ways to divert their employers goods and sell the vehicle.
Moshood said after selling the goods, they would relocate to another place where they would apply for the same position in another company, stressing that their last operation was the incident of Dec. 9.
He said that after they attacked the driver who was sleeping from the long journey with raw acid , thinking that he was dead , they snatched his truck loaded with 600 bags of sugar and dragged him out of the truck.

The police spokesman said that the owner of the truck petitioned the I-GP following the attack on the driver and the diversion of the sugar worth over N10 million the driver was transporting to Benin City.
According to Moshood, based on the petition, the I-GP directed the Commander IRT, DCP Abba Kyari to investigate the matter, stressing that upon the directives, Kyari directed CSP Phillip Rieninwa, IRT commander in Lagos to go after the suspects .

“The team led by CSP Rieniwa swung into action and tracked the suspects to a shrine in Nsukka, Enugu State, from where they were apprehended.
“They have confessed to the crime and they will soon be charged to the Court. The victim, who survived the acid attack, was able to recognise the suspects,” he said.



  1. Evil men. They should be given the capital punishment.

  2. You have robbed him; is that not wicked enough, just because God spared his life you have marred him for life.

  3. Bastards!!! Did they need to still pour acid on that innocent man? They should be doused with acid too so they know how it feels.

  4. Did I just read that they are not Nigerians 😱😱😱 so our borderlines are now so porous that other countries stroll in and out of naija while causing havoc and we will be here accusing ourselves and pointing fingers at the possible tribe that did it. OMG we are in trouble.
