Suspected Robbers who Attacked Super Eagles’ Onazi Ogenyi’s Family Home in Jos Arrested in Epe, Lagos



Armed robbers on Monday attacked the Jos home of Super Eagles midfielder Ogenyi Onazi.

The robbers took away several valuable items including a white Toyota Highlander and an undisclosed amount of cash.

According to a statement from his aides, Onazi from his base in Turkey, disclosed that the bandits pretended to be courier men with a letter to be delivered to his father.

“Those robbers came, pretending they were there to deliver a letter to my dad at about 1.40PM on Monday; as soon as he collected their fake letter and asked where it was coming from they swooped on him, tied his hands, beat him up, inflicting machete cuts on him in the process.

They told him this is the first in a series of attacks that they will launch on our house and that I (Onazi) will be their target the next time.

They took their time to take some valuable materials including car and some cash but I am thankful to God they didn’t do more than that,” Onazi had said.

His family reported the case to the police and his father had also been discharged from the hospital where he was treated for the injuries inflicted on him during the ordeal.

Onazi on Thursday on Twitter, confirmed that the suspects have been apprehended in the Epe area of Lagos.

He said:
