A house-help identified as Uche Soroibe from Ideato area of Imo state has been caught after he attempted to poison his boss and his family with an insecticide.
According to Soroibe, he lost his boss’ N750,000 to fraudsters and decided that his only solution was to kill his employer and his family.
The house-help was caught on camera confessing to his crime after he was caught.
He revealed that this attempt was the third time he tried to kill his boss and his family members with the insecticide.
