Gbagi, who is currently nursing a governorship ambition in Delta State in 2023 on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),  is the owner of Signatious Hotel in Warri, Delta.

According to SaharaReporters, the former minister allegedly striped his four staff and photographed them inside his hotel for allegedly stealing the N5,000 which was actually given to them by a guest.

It was gathered that after dehumanizing the staff, a male and three females, they were taken to the Ebrumede Police Station to be remanded in custody last week Friday.

A staff of the hotel revealed that his colleagues were arrested by the former minister over the alleged theft of the said amount.

“My boss, former Minister of State for Education and owner of Signatious Hotel, Chief Kenneth Gbagi, arrested four of my colleagues working for him over the stealing of N5,000 from the hotel when actually the N5,000 was given as a gift to them by a guest because of their good behaviour.”

The staff gave the names of the arrested colleagues as Gloria Oguzie, Victor Ephraim, Rosslyn Okiemute and Achibong Precious.

He addd that “before they were arrested by the police on Friday last week at the hotel, the four staff were stripped while they were photographed in the presence of the police. We learnt that the dehumanising treatment was instructed by our boss.”

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.

The four staff were charged before a magistrate court sitting in Effurun after four days of detention.

In a five-count charge, the police accused the suspects of conniving among themselves to steal monies ranging from N156,000, N110,000, N5,000 and N2,000 owned by Signatious Hotel and committed an offence punishable under section 516 and 390 (9), of the criminal code Law Cap21C Vol.1 Law of Delta State.

The four staff, it was learnt, were granted bail on Monday through the intervention of some anti-corruption and human rights activists, who decided to take up the matter.
