The following na the story wey the MD of the Pharmacy outlet, HealthPlus Magodo, wey robbers attack recently yarn about the incident. Read and make your own conclusions…
“Dear All, this information should have come earlier, but we were waiting on the police to make progress with their investigation, so that we give accurate information. On Sun 2 Dec, armed robbers attacked Magodo Branch. A customer was shot in the foot (he is ok), personal items, cash, walking sticks, perfumes & cash were stolen. A customer’s car was driven away (its been found). Another’s car keys were taken. An unfortunate incidence indeed.
Our Guard did not report to our CSO neither did he report to his Prudential Guard. He disregarded SOPs. By Tue 4 Dec, we watched the CCTV recording & the 1st observation was that the recording started when the robbers were already inside the store. The feedback was that the Pharmacist on duty switched off the CCTV so that the robbers will not damage it, but that he later switched it on. If this was the case,we would have seen the beginning of the shift @about 10am.We would have seen the normal activities till the 2 robbers came in, then the CCTV recording would have switched off. Instead, recording started when thieves were in. The Manager was asked if CCTV gets switched off normally & she said NO but an HCA said that Taiwo usually switches off CCTV on his shift. Taiwo’s former boss called him a thief as she too was robbed under very suspicious circumstances amongst others issues
The case was reported to the Police & Taiwo was arrested last Friday, the Guard was arrested on Tuesday. We have encouraged the police to be professional and to hasten the speed of investigation. In almost 14 years of running the business, a Pharmacist has never been detained but this case is peculiar: it is an armed robbery case, hence treated specially by police. The police must carry out their duties. We will cooperate with them. Regards.”
