The Lugard Road, Lagos home of the Managing Director of MAERSK Nigeria, Mr Gildas Tohouo was invaded by daredevil armed robbers on Sunday 8th December, 2019.
During the invasion, Tohouo was stabbed by the assailants alongside his Hungarian wife, who died from the incident.
The MD is said to be a Cameroonian.
However, Mr Tohouo, who survived the attack, is said to be in a very critical situation at an undisclosed hospital in Victoria Island, not too far from their Ikoyi residence.
It was revealed that the incident occurred at about 8 – 9pm on the fateful day, while an expert in the same building was having a party.
Sources stated that the building maintenance man/ electrician brought in an accomplice under the guise of being a guest at the party.
“Once in and plan finalized, he tripped off the light to the victims’ residence and asked for access to the victims’ apartment to resolve the fault.
“Being a known person, Tohouo gave access and the two culprits proceeded to stab his wife fatally.
“The MD was able to send SOS text before he was accosted and also stabbed severally. MAERSK team received the SOS and mobilized policemen to the location in Ikoyi.
“Some suspects were arrested after a thorough search of the premises and the death of the deceased was confirmed, while Tohouo is responding to treatment,” said a source..
It was gathered that two of the domestic staff present, when the unfortunate incident occurred have been arrested by men of the Lagos Command of the Nigeria Police and are being interrogated.
The suspects, Olamide Goke and Ade Akanbi, who were allegedly found with the knife believed to have been used during the operation, were reportedly helping security operatives get to the root of the matter.
Reports say none of the couple’s three children was attacked by the hoodlums during the invasion.
Confirming the attack, a statement issued by MAERSK Nigeria and signed by one Mr Richard Smith, quoted the Regional Managing Director of Africa for A.P. Moller, MAERSK, Mr David Williams, saying that, “We are very sorry to confirm that a colleague and his family have been attacked in their residence in Lagos, Nigeria.
“Tragically, the wife of our colleague passed away at the scene. Our colleague is in the hospital, where his condition is critical, but stable. The three children are all safe and accounted for.
“Our thoughts and deepest sympathy goes to the family. We will do whatever we can to support them in this tragedy.
“The relatives of the family are in the process of being notified. Relevant authorities are investigating the incident. Maersk is supporting the investigation in every possible way.”
Completely sick. It was a robbery organised by some maintenance guys working in his compound at Lugard Road. They’ve been apprehended.”
