Two Brothers Hack Man To Death Just To Steal His Motorcycle

Two siblings have been rounded up by detectives of the Ogun State Police Command, Abeokuta, for the alleged brutal murder of a commercial motorcycle rider.

The brothers, Tobi and Kehinde Kodaolu, 25 and 18 years respectively, as well as their partner-in-crime, Hammed Babalola, 18, reportedly made away with the victim’s motorcycle, which exposed them.
They were apprehended following a forensic and technical based investigation embarked upon by the police.

Consequently, the state Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, has charged okada riders in the state to be more security conscious by avoiding carrying two or more passengers at odd hours, especially in bushy and desolate areas.

Parading the three suspects at the state police headquarters on Tuesday, October 9, CP Iliyasu stated that, upon the complaint lodged at Odede Police Divisional Headquarters by one Niniola Michael of Kila Village in Odeda Local Government Council Area of the state, he directed the DPO Odeda Division, CSP Baba Muhammed, to go after the perpetrators of the heinous crime and bring them to justice within the shortest possible time.

According to the CP, the complainant’s report, made on the October 4, 2018, at about 12:30pm, added that the victim was found dead along Iyana-Egan Village, via Orile Ilugun with matchet cuts all over his body.

He gave the particulars of the snatched motorcycle as a Bajaj, marked GMO 513 UG (OYO), and the victim, Oni Olajuwon.

“In compliance with my directive, the DPO and his men embarked on a forensic and technical based investigation, in order to unravel the mystery behind the death of the victim and consequent disappearance of his motorcycle.

“Their efforts paid off when the snatched motorbike was traced to the three suspects through an enduring synergy with operatives of the Vigilante Service of Ogun State (VSO), the police boss said.

CP Iliyasu further revealed that investigations conducted by the Command showed that the suspects were a gang of a notorious syndicate with records of serial snatching of motorbikes in the area.

“On interrogation, they all confessed to commission of the crime, giving graphic details of how they hacked their victim to death in a bid to snatch the motorbike," the CP said, adding that "as soon as we are through with our investigation, the suspects will be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction."
