The suspects, who hail from Ebonyi state, were paraded on Wednesday, March 22, at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters in Ikeja with some bags of the “poisonous beans” and some bottles of Snipers recovered from the shop.

18-year-old Chidioke disclosed that he wanted to preserve the beans with the insecticide to prevent it from being infested with insects. Adding that, it was his first time of putting the substance in the foodstuffs.

My brother (Faith) was not around when I put the Sniper in the beans.”
