LEKKI MONARCH IN TROUBLE OVER MURDER OF POLICE INSPECTOR

Detective Policemen attached to the Inspector General of police Intelligence Response Team and detectives of the Federal Special Anti- Robbery Squad FSARS Lagos state police command have arrested the traditional ruler ( Baale ) of the Oshoroko community in Ibeju – Lekki area of Lagos state Chief Olusegun Oyiri over the murder of a police Inspector Musa Sunday attached to the FSARS Lagos state  police command.

Inspector Sunday was allegedly  beaten to death by suspected villagers of Oshoroko community  last year where he was deployed to by the police authority to lead a team to arrest suspected kidnappers in the Epe area and environs.

Eye witnesses said Inspector Sunday was allegedly abducted and killed by the villagers when he attempted to rescue a victim Michael Amodemaja who was allegedly beaten up by suspected  Oshoroko villagers who had allegedly come out to fight for the Oba of Ibeju Lekki Oba Odubatun against the Amodemaja family over parcels of land in Ibeju- Lekki .

It was gathered that the Inspector General of Police IGP Ibrahim Idris ordered the combined police team to stormed the community to arrest Chief Oyiri and other accomplices in the murder of the Inspector Sunday.

The source said the policemen however had a tough time arresting Chief Oyiri as the villagers stood in the way to resist his arrest.
A source said ” IGP Ibrahim Idris ordered the IRT team and other policemen in the operation to ensure that they arrest the Baale Oyiri because suspects arrested fingered him in Inspector Sunday’s murder.

Four of Chief Oyiri’s sons were alleged to have participated in hacking down the late Inspector Sunday. They have gone into hiding. Chief Oyiri was the one that brought Inspector Sunday’s 0lgun to the Lagos state Commissioner of Police Mr. Fatia Owoseni after he was murdered and the one that showed policemen the grave where Inspector Sunday was buried”. When the police went to arrest him following the confession of some suspects arrested in connection with the murder, the villagers resisted the policemen but the policemen handled them professionally and they effected Chief Oyiri’s arrest”.
Chief Oyiri however called a retinue of lawyers to defend him as he denied any involvement in the murder of Inspector Sunday adding that he did not participate in the killing and did not permit any villager to kill Inspector Sunday as he further explained that he heard about the killing after the villagers had murdered him.

The source said ” Chief Oyiri said he reported the killing of the Inspector Sunday to Oba Odubatun, the Oba of Ibeju Lekki and he told him that they will report the case at Zone 2 command and nothing will happen and that is why he resisted when the IRT team tried to arrest him”.

Jonathan ,the brother of late Inspector Sunday said  “The arrest  is a welcome development and it is  the desire of the family, from inception the family were intimated that the baale was involved and actually gave the order for him to be killed because they felt my brother was in support of the other faction and also thinking that  he was on an illegal duty on. We trust that the police will not compromise as we want justice “.

Reacting to the arrest , the Lagos state police  command spokesperson Olarinde Famous – Cole said ” I know we have some suspects arrested over the killing of the Inspector. Do you think the CP Owoseni will refuse to see anyone? Did they come to the PRO’ s office  I was not the PRO when the policeman was killed but I learnt  the Command sent officers to rescue him    “

Speaking on the arrest, the wife of late Inspector Sunday hailed the IGP and the police for arresting suspects that allegedly killed her husband.

30 years old Mrs Sunday a mother of four boys is experiencing double calamities as her 60 years old mother slumped and died last month after she learnt of Inspector Musa’s murder.
She wept  while explaining how life has been tough since her husband was killed.   ” I do not know why life is treating me this way. After losing my husband in such gruesome manner, my mother Mrs. Jumia Agonor had high blood pressure and she slumped and died last month. We are having her forty days prayer today. I am her only child and she was   closed to my late husband. She was crying over my late husband’s death so much that it affected her  health and she died due to the anguish of losing her son in-law in such gruesome manner. She could not bear the pain and it killed her. I am the Losing my husband and mother in less than one year. Since my husband was killed ,  I have been struggling to  fend for my four boys. My husband was the bread winner and he did not allow me to work. It was only  the OC SARS ACP Umar Paiko that gave N20,000 during the Xmas holiday to buy clothes for the children. We are living with my brother in law and the children are not attending school anymore because there is no money “.
Asked if she approached the Lagos state command for help, Mrs. Sunday said ” Before I learnt that my husband was dead , I , my brother in-law and the OC SARS Umar Paiko made several attempts to see the Lagos state Commissioner of Police Mr. Fatia Owoseni  but he did not   see us. On a particular occasion, OC Paiko was weeping and angry why the CP refused to see us . We later learnt that the Baale had lied to the CP that my husband was on illegal duty which made the CP Owoseni not to grant us audience and he also refused to deploy people to look for the killers . It was after several visits that the DCP Operations finally told us that my husband was no more. He said the authority will pay my husband what he was entitled to for seven years but I have not gotten any money. I am very broke and cannot feed my children.  None of my husband’s colleagues have visited me. The state command have not visited me to condole with me. I want justice for my husband”
Asked to describe her late husband, Mrs Sunday said ” my husband was a good man. He is not corrupt and he was very brilliant and brave. He refused to pay money to anymore so he can get transfer. When the authority transferred him to Epe he gladly went. I want him to be given a heroic burial. He died while saving the life of others and that is very brave. The police should honour him”.
