Miss Loveth Ozor who hails from Delta State is a staff of Barcode Station, an entertainment centre based here in Benin City.

In a petition addressed to the Commissioner of Police, Edo State Police Command, through her solicitor, M. O. Ighodalo & Co, Miss Ozor alleged that her employer, Mr. Obosa Osaretin seized her phone and ATM card with which he withdrew the sum of N14,000.00 from our UBA account without her consent.


“We act as solicitors for MISS LOVETH OZOR with mobile phone number 09025943054 hereinafter referred to as our client and on whose instructions we write this petition.

“Our client has informed us that she is a resident staff of one entertainment centre called BARCODE STATION which is situated along Airport Road, Benin City and owned by one Mr. Obosa Osaretin who is Managing Director.

“We are informed by our client that on the 29th August, 2022 a customer bought food for one of her co-staff called MICHAEL EBENEZER. The said MICHAEL EBENEZER declined to eat the food and demanded for the sum of N4,500.00 which is the cost of the food bought for him by the customer as it is a common practice among staff of the entertainment centre.

“We are further informed by our client that when the Managing Director became aware of the transaction, he accused her of not informing the management before converting food for money. At the close of business, Mr. Obosa Osaretin (MD) seized her phone and ATM card with which he withdrew the sum of N14, 000 from our client s UBA account without her consent.

“Our client says she was evicted from the lodge where staff resides and detained at the lyekogba Police Station by the Managing Director who also refused to pay her August, 2022 salary. We are also informed by our client that all her personal belongings such as clothes, documents, her mobile phone valued at N75,000.00, ATM card and the sum of N14,000.00 are all in the possession of the said Managing Director.

“Our client and her relations are surprised that up till the time of writing this petition, Officers at lyekogba Police Station have been unable to prevail on the said Mr. Obosa Osaretin, Managing Director of BARCODE STATION to release to her the above listed items which he unlawfully converted; hence this petition to seek your immediate intervention for the abatement of this glaring injustice.

“Our client sincerely believes that the unlawful act of the said Mr. Obosa Osaretin can only be resolved by your office as she has lost hope in the handling of her matter by the officers and men of the lyekogba Division of the Nigeria Police.”

In a telephone interview with The9JaTREND to get his reaction of the allegationds against him, Mr. Obosa Osaeretin said, “It is an ongoing case before Iyekogba Police Station. Therefore I cannot make further comment.”
