How We Lure Our Victims To Construction Sites Before Killing Them – Law Graduate

Must read

Williams  Abiodun, a 2007 Law graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, narrated how they disguise as site workers to lure drivers to a site, where they dispossessed them of their vehicles, kill and sell their vehicles to Chinese companies in Benin City, Edo State.

The 39-year-old Abiodun, who hailed from Ondo State, made the revelation while being paraded alongside 10 other suspected criminals by the Edo State Police Commissioner, Muhammed Dankwara, at the headquarters of the state Police Command, Benin City.

He said: “What we do is that we disguise as site workers going to the site, then we call the drivers to take us to the site. When we get to the site, we will collect their cars, kill them with blocks and sell their cars.

“We killed the first one, collected his car and I sold it to the Chinese company. The second one was a Keke. We also sold it, but the last one was the one that the police arrested us for. We are yet to sell the Sienna car before we were arrested.”

Collaborating the report, Akin Amadin, a member of the gang, said he met Williams Abiodun in Auchi and he told him about the business.

“Abiodun told me that my job is to be watching out to see who is coming. For the first one we did, he gave me N35,000. The second one, I got N55,000 and the last one was the Seinna car, but we could not sell it before the police caught us. We killed the three persons,” he said

The gang is made up of Williams Abiodun, 39; Emmanuel Joseph, 30; Akin Amadin, 29, and the fourth person who is now at large.

Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Dankwara, while briefing newsmen during the parade, said the Police recovered N1.2 million, sophisticated arms and ammunition, while 135 suspects have been arrested since his assumption of office in Edo State.

He, however, warned criminal elements in the state to call it to quit or move out of the state or else have themselves to blame.

Dankwara said the investigation shows that the arrest of some of the criminals had made the crime rate in the state go down, which implied that those in custody have always been key partakers in crime.

Among the items recovered items are AK-47 rifles,  locally made guns, pistols, 10 vehicles, 130 gas cylinders, two motorcycles, and N1,200,000 cash.

Suspect Who Posed As Police Commission And Defrauded Businessman Of N250 Million Arrested

Fifty-five-year-old Oluwole Akande who has been masquerading as the Commissioner of Police in charge of Railway Command, Oluwole Akande, has revealed that he did it to defraud an 80-year-old businessman of N250 million naira.

The suspect contacted the businessman identified simply as Chief Ogunefo, introduced himself as CP Longe, and informed him that there was a petition against him at the command.

The petition, according to him, alleged that Chief Ogunefo was involved in an illegal business and that he was a cultist. He thereafter, demanded N250 million from him to thrash the matter.

During the telephone conversation, he told the octogenarian that the money would be shared among top police officers of the ranks of Deputy Inspector-General of Police and Assistant Inspector-General of Police, AIG.

Vanguard was informed that in fear, the victim sold two of his houses to make an initial payment of N150 million. He was reportedly on the verge of selling one of his filling stations when his wife intervened.

She reportedly alerted CP Frank Mba on the blackmail by the supposed CP Railway.

A surprised Mba contacted the CP Railway Command, Yetunde Longe to confirm the allegation, only to discover that the suspect was an impostor.

Vanguard on  Tuesday,  January 17, 2023, gathered that the suspect was traced to the Ojokoro area of Lagos via his telephone conversations with the victim.

During interrogation, he said, “ I do not know CP Longe. I only came across her name in the papers when she was promoted to the rank of Commissioner of Police the same day with her husband.

“I impersonated her because I wanted to ‘obtain’ the money from Chief Ogunefo, by lying that he was implicated in the imaginary petition. I thought he would release it immediately so I called him. I told him I would drop the petition if he paid. He didn’t even bargain and I didn’t believe it would backfire.

“I used two sim cards to call him and I also sent him several text messages”

When contacted, CP Yetunde Longe said the suspect was arrested by detectives of the State Criminal Investigation Department. She added that the suspect was charged to court today.
