Three male suspects in the robbery and murder of Adeniyi Sanni, an aide of Senator Solomon Adeola, commonly known as Yayi, were paraded by the Lagos State Police Command on Monday, September 18.
While briefing media at the command’s headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos, Lagos State Commissioner of Police Idowu Owohunwa confirmed the arrest.
Sanni was slain on August 5 while traveling to his house in Isheri, Lagos, when he was stopped by “fake security” personnel at a checkpoint in Ojodu Berger.
Owohunwa said: “Through painstaking intelligence and investigative activities which brought out the best in the capacity of Lagos Police Command, we have succeeded in arresting the syndicate of the robbery and murder. The three suspects directly involved in the robbery and murder were arrested with three firearms including the killer’s weapon were recovered.”
The command recovered one brand new pistol with three live ammunition, one Beretta pistol with three live ammunition, one locally made pistol with six live cartridges, six expended cartridges, military gear comprising a military camouflage vest, jungle hat, pistol hose and a red Honda CRV from the suspects.
The arrested suspects are Fred Azeez Okuno, 43-year-old Lagosian, Lucky Idudu Michael, 33-year-old from Delta State, and Adedigba Segun, 26-year-old from Ibadan, Oyo state.
