“I and my friend, Oscar, wanted to drive the Toyota Corolla car to Splash Hotel’s Valentine Show on Sunday night. Prior to that, I persuaded Madam to give me a go-ahead to cut a spare key, but she declined. But a week before the February 14 Valentine celebration I duplicated the key without her knowledge.
“Even though, she excused me from work on Sundays, but I still sneaked into her residence and made away with the car after church service. I took the car to my residence in Ajuwe Area, Ajah, Lagos.
“I was on my way home when Madam began calling me. When I picked the call, she said I should report to her house without delay; that I was going to take her somewhere. I obliged and I headed towards Abraham Adesanya Estate.
“I was at Abraham Adesanya Estate Roundabout, trying to enter the Estate when I suddenly sighted a man, who blocked me with his car. It was there I was arrested by the operatives of the RRS. They asked me where I took the car to, since morning and I explained everything to them.
“Madam has been very nice to me. She pays me N35, 000 as my monthly salary. I am almost like her family member. I am free with her and her family members”, said Emmanuel.
