Hemp odour exposes robbery suspect

Published by The Nation on Wed, 10 Dec 2014


His bag attracted the police attention and he was asked the content.A peep into the bag and the policeman was hit by the pungent smell of Indian hemp and he screamed.That was not all. A search revealed two guns hidden inside the bag. This discovery led to the arrest of Amos Kuesi (24) by a plain-clothe policeman at the popular Pen Cinema Roundabout in Agege, a Lagos suburb. He is being held by the Lagos State Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) .The Ogoni, Rivers State-born suspect, who claims to be a generator repairer, told The Nation yesterday that he took to armed robbery when he could not raise money to pay his rent in Lagos.Kuesi, who said he never told his fiance that he was into robbery for fear of losing her, stated: I only told her that I do some runs which fetch me money. I am a victim of circumstances. I have been going for armed robbery operations and I used to be careful not to be caught. This time, I was careless.I had accommodation problem. My rent expired in November. I complained to my friend, Ifeanyi, when we went to play football in Rivers that I had a problem paying my expired rent. He promised to help me. But he told me that he had a bag which I would help him deliver to one man, Soti in Lagos, adding that Soti would give me N50,000 upon delivering the bag to him. He also gave me N20,000 covering my transport and feeding.Kuesi said his friend told him that the bag contained Indian hemp, ladding that unknown to him, it also contained guns.When I reached Lagos, I wanted to pass through the Pen Cinema Roundabout but a policeman in plain-clothe accosted me and Soti, who was there to collect the bag. The policeman demanded to know the content of the bag. I told him I had two clothes (a shirt and a pair of trousers). When the policeman opened the bag, he smelt the odour of Indian hemp and screamed. Who are you that you have the courage to carry this quantity of Indian hemp' Are you a madman' He asked. Before I could answer one of the questions, Soti took to his heels, Kuesi said.Sotis escape, according to the suspect, prompted the policeman to hold him. He immediately dragged me to the Pen Cinema Police Station.When the policeman searched the bag thoroughly at the station, the suspect said, he discovered two guns, four cartridges and about N16,000 which was left on me.Kuesi, who said he was later transferred to SARS Scorpion House in Ikeja, Lagos, added: I confessed that I am an armed robber, but that I was not caught robbing at the Pen Cinema where I was arrested. I also told him that I did not know that Ifeanyi put two locally made short guns and four cartridges inside the bag he gave me to deliver to Soti.The suspect has promised to help the SARS operatives to arrest Ifeanyi and Soti.The commands image maker, Ken Nwosu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), confirmed the report.The post Hemp odour exposes robbery suspect appeared first on The Nation.]]>
