Thugs Loyal To Monarch’s Nephew Kill Security Guard In Lagos

A security guard attached to the Bello Folawiyo Government Reserved Area in the Ketu Ikosi area of Lagos, Mr. Odion Aimeyekagbon, has been murdered by some assailants, who invaded the area.

A land grabber, identified simply as Enibalomo, was said to have ordered the hoodlums to attack the guard, who was an employee of Real Striker Security Company.

It was learnt that the guard and his colleague had insisted that he present a gate pass before he could be granted exit from the estate.

According to Punch, Enibalomo, a nephew of a monarch in Lagos, was returning from a hotel around 6pm on September 11, when he was stopped by the security officials.

The suspected kingpin reportedly got angry by the request and called the assailants on the telephone.

It was gathered that the touts, who were still on the run, stabbed Odion and smashed his head on an iron pillar. The Edo State-born man was said to have been left to die in a pool of blood, while his colleague, Zaka Ajeh, reportedly escaped with some injuries.

It was gathered that Ajeh, who hails from Benue, was bedridden for three days before he was taken to his hometown for proper medical care.

Odion’s brother, Osas Aimeyekagbon, described his killing as gruesome. He said the family were in pains over the loss and urged that justice be given his late brother. He added that the police had not allowed them to see the corpse at the morgue.

He said, “It is unfortunate that my brother died violently in the hand of miscreants. His killer must be made to face the law irrespective of his influence because this is a huge loss. The painful part is that we have not been able to see his corpse. The police only showed us the pictures of the mutilated and bloody corpse taken at the scene of crime.
When we demanded that they should take us to the mortuary at Ikorodu where the corpse was deposited, the IPO in charge of the case refused. He insisted that we give him N5,000 before we could see the corpse of our murdered brother.

“I learnt that the leader of the murderers is a well known man in the community.Those area boys stabbed him and hit his head on an iron pillar. The police are telling us that they want the man to report himself to the station.

“Yes, our brother is dead, he cannot be brought back to life, but we do not want this man to just go free without paying for the innocent blood he shed. I want Nigerians to help us out because from all indications, the police want to sweep this murder under the carpet.”

The Acting Chairman of the estate’s Community Development Association, Rev. Bode Oresajo, said he was informed about the incident. He added that the police and the government officials had been notified.

He said, “I was called from the church that day. The crime was reported at the Ketu Police Station. We also wrote a letter to the governor and copied the Chairman, Ikosi-Isheri LCDA. The chairman visited the estate and promised to do something about the incident, but we have not seen any meaningful development.”

The Human Resources Manager of the Real Striker, Mr. Kolawole Dawodu, said the company was not happy with the way the case was being handled by the police.

He said, “We are expecting that the man who led the gang would have been arrested. The case was transferred from Ketu to Area H Command, Ogudu. Now, it is being handled in SCID, Yaba. The police promised to effect arrest within two weeks, but no arrest has been made. This is a case of a man who was murdered in cold blood while he was on his line of duty. The other official has been taken to his town for proper treatment.”

When contacted to comment on the matter, the Lagos State police spokesperson, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, promised to get back to our correspondent. He had, however, yet to do so as of press time.

This is wickedness on the part of the police, these are the issues they should be treating instead they are busy harassing innocent journalist claiming their wicked character has been defamed!
