Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force, Lagos State Command have arrested three ex-convicts suspected of being involved in the murder of Adeniyi Sanni, an aide to Senator Olamilekan Adeola Yayi.

It was gathered that the suspects are believed to be part of an armed robbery group sponsored from outside Nigeria with the primary objective of targeting unsuspecting victims and stealing their fairly-used cars.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunwa, paraded the suspects on Monday during the press conference at the state police command headquarters in Ikeja, the state capital.

The Ogun West Senator, Solomon Adeola Olamilekan’s aide was killed in Lagos State in August.

The victim was murdered under controversial circumstance in the early hours of a Saturday.

The deceased was said to have been stopped at a checking point in Lagos where he was said to been questioned about documents of his vehicle.

After constant communication with the wife, the legislative aide suddenly went incommunicado, suggesting something unpleasant had happened to him.

His corpse was later found with bullet wound hours later.

“Information available to the bereaved Senator in Abuja indicates that Mr. Sanni was stopped at a checking point around Berger Area of Lagos on his way to his home at Isheri by security agents.

“He was asked to provide the documents of the car he was driving, which he did through his wife who sent all the documents to his phone WhatsApp.

“It was gathered that the wife called a while later and the late Mr. Sanni told him they are still checking the vehicle’s paper. His apprehensive wife later called on Mr. Sanni’s associates to say he could no longer reach her husband on phone necessitating the mobilization of a search party.

“She was later called by passersby through the Next of Kin phone number on her husband’s driver’s license that the body of Mr. Sanni was dumped around Toyota Bus Stop in Oshodi with gunshot wound.

“Senator Adeola who is involved in the ongoing ministerial screening at the Senate is shocked beyond words and devastated by the news of this sad incident, as Mr. Sanni was his close aide for over two decades. The Nigeria Police Force are investigating the killing,” the Senator’s media Aide had said in a statement.  (SaharaReporters)
