Ex-Nigerian Minister Arrests Hotel Staff And Orders They Are Stripped Naked For Allegedly Stealing N5,000

A former minister of State for Education, Kenneth Gbagi, who is currently nursing a governorship ambition in Delta State in 2023 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, has arrested and charged four of his staff working in his hotel to court for allegedly stealing his N5,000, .....

It was reliably gathered that Gbagi last week Friday arrested the four staff working in Signatious Hotel, Warri, Delta State, after they were striped naked and photographed inside the hotel before handing them over to the police.

Our correspondent gathered that after dehumanizing the four staff, a male and three females, they were taken to the Ebrumede Police Station to be remanded in custody.

Speaking in confidence with our correspondent, a staff of the hotel revealed that his colleagues were arrested by the former minister over the alleged theft of the said amount.

He said, "My boss, former Minister of State for Education and owner of Signatious Hotel, Chief Kenneth Gbagi, arrested four of my colleagues working for him over the stealing of N5,000 from the hotel when actually the N5,000 was given as a gift to them by a guest because of their good behaviour."

While giving the names of the arrested colleagues as Gloria Oguzie, Victor Ephraim, Rosslyn Okiemute and Achibong Precious, the source said, "Before they were arrested by the police on Friday last week at the hotel, the four staff were stripped naked while they were photographed in the presence of the police. 

"We learnt that the dehumanising treatment was instructed by our boss."

It was further gathered that the hotel management forcefully made some withdrawals from the bank accounts of the four staff through their ATM cards before the police took them away in a waiting van.

The four staff were charged before a magistrate court sitting in Effurun after four days of detention.

In a five-count charge, the police accused the suspects of conniving among themselves to steal monies ranging from N156,000, N110,000, N5,000 and N2,000 owned by Signatious Hotel and committed an offence punishable under section 516 and 390 (9), of the criminal code Law Cap21C Vol.1 Law of Delta State.

The four staff, it was learnt, were granted bail on Monday through the intervention of some anti-corruption and human rights activists, who decided to take up the matter.

Warri-based human rights lawyer, Omemiroro Maxwell Ogedegbe, who confirmed the story, said that the four staff were granted bail by a magistrate court sitting in Effurun, Delta State

  3. This Kenneth Gbagi is a Very wicked man. He is the owner of Robinson plaza at Deco road warri. Traders there have nothing good to say about him

  4. I know this man .power dey catch am. Yeye dey smell.

  5. This is wickedness!!!
    Why why why?

  6. Hotel he most probably built with looted funds! They say he is nursing Governorship ambitions. Delta indigens, it will be a shame when the time comes, if you guys vote for this man. He is unfit to be in any position whatsoever.

  7. And people will still patronise his hotel and vote him tomorrow instead of boycotting all his properties... Mtcheew

  8. Kai God😫😫πŸ˜ͺ, what exactly will make this man think that there is no God?

  9. This is callous and inhumane. This is a man who may have stolen public funds to build the hotel. Strip grown up people naked for 5k? How does he sleep at night knowing that he is evil and greedy, wicked!

  10. Hmmmm...he too will be stripped naked soon. Imagine the rubbish?

  11. Wickness

    Gbagi that will not pay staff and people working for him is dehumanizing other people's children because of 5k.

    Na so he won take govern delta


  12. Inhumane

    The mind of most privileged is this much evil. Such blatant abuse of authority and better judgement.

    Shame on that man.

  13. And he will win election after bribing people. Very wicked man indeed.

  14. The stole what he stole

  15. So the hotel don't have cctv cameras to see if staff are doing what they shouldn't? Kudos to the human rights activists who took up the charge to free these people. Can they now file a human rights lawsuit against the man and the hotel for false accusations, dehumanizing actions, stress and ptsd due to the incident. If he can get the law to lock up these ppl without merit or proof, then the said law should be used against him. We need some good attorneys to take up this case pro bono. Today it is these ppl, tomorrow it is your kids. These power hungry bosses must be taught a lesson. Nobody should vote for him and this incident should prevent him from even being placed on any ballot. Wealth does not mean you get to treat ppl less than animals. The law protects every citizen not just the wealthy and educated.
