A governorship Aspirant in the 2023 election in Delta State, Mr. Kenneth Gbagi has allegedly stripped four of his workers in his hotel, Signatious Hotel, unclad due to N5,000 theft.
It was gathered that the incident occurred last week Friday when the Guber Aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP arrested and charged the four staff working in his hotel in Effurun area of Warri to court for allegedly stealing his N5,000.
In an exclusive photos by PARADISE NEWS, Gbagi, a former Minister of State for Education photographed the victims inside the hotel before handing them over to the police.
The staff identified as; Gloria Oguzie, Victor Ephraim, Rosslyn Okiemute and Achibong Precious were then taken to the Ebrumede Police Station and remanded in the custody.
A source said the N5,000 was actually given to the staff by a client and not stole as Gbagi claimed.
“He arrested four of his staff at his hotel in Warri over claims that they stole N5,000 from him but the said N5,000 was reportedly given as a gift to the four staff as tip for their hospitality by a guest.
“As at Friday (18th day of September, 2020) at the hotel, he stripped the girls naked, filming them in presence of law enforcement agents at gun point”, claimed the source.
It was further gathered that the hotel management forcefully made some withdrawals from the bank accounts of the four staff through their ATM cards before the police took them away in a waiting van.
They were charged before a magistrate court sitting in Effurun after four days of detention.
