The Lagos State Police Command
has arrested four suspected
assassins for allegedly agreeing to
kill a London-based Nigerian.
It was learnt that the suspects
agreed to carry out the deed after
they were promised N300,000 by
their client.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the four
suspects; Salami Afeez, Dare
Akinyemi, Fatai Olunje and Taiwo
Akinyemi; were apprehended in
the Mushin area of the state on
December 11, 2014, by operatives of
the command’s Special Anti-
Robbery Squad.
Our correspondent learnt that a
police detective had gone
undercover as a prospective client
to be able to locate the hideout of
the suspects.
The police revealed that the
suspected assassins were hired to
kill a Nigerian, who resided in
London and was planning to visit
The police added that the cop, who
contacted the gang, wanted to be
sure that the gang had guns, and
therefore asked them to produce
their weapons, which the gang
allegedly did.
Our correspondent learnt that the
detective, however, led the police
to arrest the gang members in their
hideout before they could carry out
the operation.
Speaking with PUNCH Metro, 23-
year-old Afeez said their client
promised to pay the gang N300,000
for the assassination. He, however,
denied that they had always been
assassins, adding that they were
only enticed by the money.
He said, “The client had not told us
who the victim was. What he
initially told us was that there was
an election operation which we
would carry out for a politician. He
asked me to get more people to
handle it. So, I got the other gang
“We planned everything with the
client, who we simply refer to as
chairman, at a beer parlour on
Awawu Street, Mushin. Later on,
when we were arrested, we got to
know that one of those people we
were dealing with was actually a
“It was not that I worked as an
assassin. I stay on Mustapha Street,
Mushin, with my family where I
work as generator repairer. I am
also a cult member. I was initiated
into the Aiye cult last year October.
It was the money that enticed us.
The chairman promised to give us
N300,000 for the job.”
Also, Akinyemi, 31, said he was a
drug trafficker before he was
introduced to the gang. He added
that he, however, had yet to
partake in any operation with the
He said, “I stay in Mushin. I deal in
drugs. It was Taiwo who said he had
a group which wanted to carry out a
lucrative operation, and I should be
a part of it. I told them that I don’t
indulge in armed robbery, but they
promised me a huge part of the
“On the day we were arrested, we
were about collecting the N300,000
payment. Taiwo and I went to a
hotel lounge in Mushin, and that
was where the police arrested us. I
have never killed before. This is my
first time. We intended to spend
the money for Christmas.”
PUNCH Metro learnt that the third
suspect, 43-year-old Olunje from
Ilorin, Kwara Sate, was the one who
supplied the guns to the gang. It
was gathered that Olunje, who
worked as a local security man,
bought the guns in 2006 without a

himself as Chairman, made them
believe he was a well-to-do
