Five robbery suspects, including three staff of Peakins Pharmaceutical Company Limited, on Plot C, Mobolaji Johnson Estate, in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, have been arrested for allegedly stealing pharmaceutical products worth N56 million from the company.

The suspects were alleged to have been secretly stealing the products from the company’s warehouse, with the connivance of some staff, since May.

Luck, however, ran against them after one of the staff, Okechukwu, was caught while he was allegedly sneaking a carton of drugs valued at N400,000 from the warehouse.

The Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr. Isaac Ugwu, reported the incident at the Zone 2 Command, Onikan, following which detectives attached to the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the Zone arrested him.
