A labourer identified as Jacob Monday, has been arrested by the Ogun State police command for allegedly attacking and robbing his supervisor, Monday Dare, in a rice plantation in Alabata village when he came to pay the salary of the workers.
He was arrested in Kogi State, two weeks after he committed the offence. He allegedly committed the offence on the 19th December 2017 and fled to Kabba, Kogi State where he was nabbed on 2nd January 2018.
One of the workers, Kamoru Akanbi, was reported to have said that after Dare had inspected the stretch of work done on the farm by the suspect and paid him, the suspect suddenly hit him with a club on the head.
He added that the supervisor thereafter lost his consciousness, and the suspect not satisfied with that, further macheted his body with cutlass until he passed out momentarily.
Akanbi said that was when the suspect dispossessed him of the money meant for the salary of other workers and bolted away.
