A security guard with a private security firm in Lagos State has allegedly disappeared with a dog and other items belonging to residents of a building he was employed to guard.

After receiving his first salary on April 30, he allegedly fled his place of posting, Punch reports.


A resident, Frank Osagie, told the publication that the guard fled with his Shitzu dog, vehicle parts, electronics, a wall fan, among others.

“He stole various valuable items also from the residence, including but not limited to a security phone, furniture, electronics, vehicle parts, a wall fan, a steam iron, among others.”
