Physinews: The Lagos State Police Command has arrested
a 24-year-old suspect, Tayo Adeyemi, who
confessed to have been hired to kill a female
hotel lodger in the Alakija, Satellite Town area
of the state.

Adeyemi, who hails from Kwara State in Nigeria, told our
correspondent that he was arrested by the
police after he sneaked into the hotel, White
House, and demanded that his target, simply
known as Rosemary, had sex with him so he
would spare her life.
PUNCH Metro gathered that Adeyemi, who
dropped out of senior secondary school, was
arrested by the Satellite Town Police Division
last Thursday.
It was learnt that penultimate Wednesday,
Adeyemi was brought by two gang members on
a motorcycle to the hotel to kill Rosemary.
However, once Adeyemi laid his eyes on his
supposed target, he reportedly fell in love with
her and eventually attempted to rape her after
she rebuffed his pleas to have sex with him.
Rosemary, however, raised the alarm.
The hotel management subsequently called the
police, and Adeyemi was arrested.
Our correspondent learnt that one locally-made
pistol and a live cartridge were recovered from
Adeyemi, who had been transferred to the
Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja.
The police said the suspect belonged to a
three-man gang, adding that a manhunt had
been launched for the fleeing two gang
members.
Speaking with PUNCH Metro, Adeyemi said he
gave the woman N1,500 to have sex with her,
adding that he fell in love with his target.
Adeyemi, who spoke in pidgin English, said, “I
was working as a casual worker at a bottling
company in the Apapa area before I met the
gang members in the Ajegunle area. A friend,
Wisdom, had invited me to stay in his house.
“His friends, who are Eiye Confraternity
members, saw me and said they had a job for
me. They said the job was to kill a woman. I
said I could not do such a job, but they
threatened to kill me and since they had guns, I
was afraid.
“Finally, I was left with no option but to do their
wish. One of them, Ahmed, gave me the gun
and they brought me on a motorcycle to the
hotel. But when I got to the hotel room and saw
the woman, I fell in love with her and I had
mercy on her.
“I told her that I was sent to kill her, but since I
loved her, I would just have sex with her. When
she declined, I offered her N1,500, and said I
would take her necklaces and wristwatch away
and lie to my gang members that she had been
killed. But she raised the alarm.
“Everyone in the hotel called the police, the
Oodua Peoples’ Congress and other vigilance
groups. The hotel management called the
police at the Satellite Town division.
“When my parents heard about my arrest, they
were disappointed. I told them that I was being
threatened by the cult members. I did not mean
to kill the lady.
Otherwise, I would have shot her and run
away.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai
Owoseni, said the command would not give
criminals a breathing space in the state.
