Three teens arrested for robbery and murder

Men from the Ogun State Police Command, have arrested three male teenagers: Sodiq Awokoya, 18, Odunayo Samson, 18, and Jimoh Rilwan, 17, for killing a motorcyclist, Bashiru Umaru, and stealing his motorcycle.

On October 8, 2021, the suspects were apprehended in Ogere's Toll Gate neighborhood, where they had gone to sell the motorcycle.

When the three suspects gave various explanations, of how they came to own the motorcycle, the customer, who wanted the vehicle's documentation before paying, grew skeptical.

The buyer then secretly informed the police at Ogere Divisional Headquarters, prompting the Divisional Police Officer, Chief Superintendent of Police to intervene. Upon interrogation, they informed the police that the motorcycle was stolen from Iperu Remo. They were afterwards handed up to the Iperu Division police.

The police brought the suspects from Ogere, with the stolen motorcycle at the same time,as the deceased's relatives came to make a report,about their missing person.

The deceased's relatives soon recognized the motorcycle and alerted the police, that the motorcycle brought with the suspects, belonged to their missing brother.

The police inquiry into the case was stepped up as a result of the information, and the suspects eventually confirmed that they had seized the motorcycle and tied the owner to a tree in the bush. Upon the information, the policemen intensified their investigation into the case and the suspects later confirmed that they actually snatched the motorcycle, and that the owner was tied to a tree in a bush.

In order to rescue the victim, the policemen quickly led the suspects to the bush, but surprisingly they had hacked him to death, before taking away the motorcycle.

Further investigation revealed that Samson Odunayo, was the person who called the deceased, to take him to somewhere in Iperu. unknown to the okada man, he had already informed Sodiq Awokoya, to wait in a bush along Ona Eri area of Iperu, with cutlass and other dangerous weapons.

On getting to the point, Samson Odunayo ordered the deceased to stop because he has reached his destination.

While the deceased was waiting to collect his money, Sodiq Awokoya came out with a cutlass and hacked him down.

While wriggling in pain, Samson Awokoya moved near him and squeezed his neck until he gave up the ghost.

They searched his pocket and found the sum of N5,500, which they also took away.

Further investigation revealed that this is the second robbery operation carried out by the suspects.

Their first victim was saved from been killed by the intervention of Jimoh Rilwan, who appealed to the other two to spare the life of the victim, having robbed him of cash sum of N4,500.

This accounted for why Samson and Sodiq didn’t take him along, during their second operation.

The motorcycle and the cutlass they used for killing the deceased have been recovered.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for thorough investigation.
