The Oyo state police command has paraded four suspects in connection with the death of a member of the Oyo state House of Assembly, Gideon Aremu, who was shot dead at his residence in Alakia, Egbeda Local government area in Oyo state on July 1st at about 11pm.
One of the suspects, Ayobami Adedeji, an ex-convict who was freed last year, said himself and his gang members were only out to steal from the lawmaker but had to shoot him after they thought he recognized one of them.
"We left a popular drinking joint at Beere, where we smoked Indian Hemp to our satisfaction. We did not have the lawmaker in mind when we took off from Beere. It was when we were looking for who to rob that we saw him in his car. We stopped him as he was about entering his premises and robbed him of his phone and money. We had only one gun. Alhough I was the one that collected the items, I did not know how much money we took from him. I was given only N40,000. Then Abbey just pointed the gun at him and shot him many times. I didn’t know why he killed him. Later I discovered that Abbey lives at Adegbayi too. His mother has a house there.
“The initial arrest of one Adeniran Oladapo with the victim’s phone, led to the arrest of other suspects among who is Ayobami Adedeji. He confessed that he belonged to the four-man robbery gang that actually robbed and killed the deceased in front of his house. According to the suspect, they did not know who their victim was.
The suspects will soon be charged to court.
