Learnallpro reports that suspected thieves, whose mode of operation could be described as mysterious, on Sunday broke into the home of the proprietor of a primary school located in the Pipeline area of Kubwa, a satellite town in Bwari Area Council of the FCT, and carted away money meant for the July salary of his teachers and other workers in the school.

It was gathered that the robbers also attacked two houses on the same street.

The proprietor, Mr. Adegbenro Samuel, told our reporter that he had retired to his residence from work on Friday, taking with him the envelopes containing the salaries.

He said he placed the envelopes in a briefcase and kept it on the table beside his bed, adding that he also placed his mobile phone on the table and went to bed.


He said when he woke up the next morning, he discovered that both the briefcase and mobile phone were missing.

He said: “Initially, I was shocked because I never heard any noise throughout the night. I thought, maybe, I did not bring the briefcase home from school but my phone, which was the last thing I handled was also missing. That made me conclude that something was amiss.

“Immediately I went to the sitting room to inspect the doors and windows but, to my amazement, both were intact and still locked the same way I left them the night before.

“At this point, I raised the alarm. I was equally shocked that other occupants of the house did not know what happened and did not hear any sound.

“We moved around the premises to search only to discover the briefcase on the floor. When it was opened, all the envelopes had been taken away. The envelopes were later found on the ground in the premises with all the money removed.”

An official attached to the Kubwa Police Station, who does not want his name in print because he was not authorised to speak to the press, said the attack could have been carried out using charms which made the robbers invincible.

Similar robberies, according to him, had been reported in Garki, Asokoro and Wuse, among other places.
