Robbers threaten attack on Onazi after raid on Jos family house


Super Eagles star, Ogenyi Onazi, has been told that he is the next target of armed robbers who raided his Jos family home on Monday.

Onazi is understood to be highly shaken by the armed robbery incident that occurred at his family house in Jos on Monday.

It was gathered that four armed robbers carried out the dastardly act; carting away valuables including a Toyota Highlander and some 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(yesterday); 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,” he recounted.

“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 added.

A close family friend told PREMIUM Times that the incident has already been reported to the police.

The Police have since swung into action to bring the hoodlums to book and recover the valuables stolen.
