Revelation: How We Strangled Our Boss, Ex-VC Albert Ilemobade Killers Confess

 

          
Two domestic staff persons employed by the late former Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), Prof. Albert Ilemobade, on Monday confessed to killing their boss.

The staff, a former driver, Olayemi Bamitale, and the security night guard, Daniel Ita, confessed about how they purposely killed the former university don in cold-blood at his private residence in Ijapo Estate, Akure, the Ondo state capital.

The killers, who looked stern in their confessional statement at the headquarters of the Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Police Force in Akure, narrated the way they “strangulated” their boss to death with the aim of stealing and selling off his recently purchased Red Toyota RAV 4 Jeep.

Confessing his crime, the former driver, Bamitele, said after working with the late Professor Ilemobade for several years and then eventually running away from the family, he was called from Ado Ekiti by the security night guard.

“He [Daniel] called me that he had already arranged how we are going to steal baba’s [Prof. Ilemobabe] vehicle. I was surprised but I told him am not presently in town that am in Ado Ekiti. He told me I should enter a commercial transport and come to Akure immediately. I don’t even have transport fare but he said I should enter into any vehicle and when I get to Akure he would pay for it.

Wife Poisons Her Husband To Be With A Boyfriend In Lagos



                               
A housewife, Kwenume Ojo (aka Abiodun), has been arrested by men of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly killing her husband, 32 years old Jimoh Ojo, in the Yaba area of the state.

It was learnt that Kwenume put poison in her husband’s soft drink and forced it down his throat while he was asleep in his home.

The young wife suspect took the poison from a relative of her boyfriend after she was forced to marry Jimoh. The incident happened on Friday on Apolo Street, in the Makoko area of Lagos.

Jimoh’s in-law, Rotimi Akinlagun, explained that the deceased was retarded, which made it difficult for him to get a wife. He said his marriage to Kwenume was arranged by the two families.


He said, “Jimoh was a carpenter. When he was born, he fell sick and that affected his health as he became retarded. When he became mature, we decided to get him a wife. We started asking around for anybody who could give him a wife.


“Kwenume’s father heard and he contacted Jimoh’s family. He gave them Kwenume to become Jimoh’s wife. She had no choice in the matter.”

We learnt that Kwenume’s father took the decision to prevent her from marrying her boyfriend, who he did not like. The dislike, it was gathered, stemmed from the maltreatment of Kwenume’s sister, who was married into the boyfriend’s family.

Fillers have emerged on why the former security aide of former first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, Deputy Superintendent of Police, DSP Tamuno Igbomie was last weekend murdered in Abuja.

Security sources who spoke to LEADERSHIP on the unfortunate incident which occurred along the Airport Road said the killing was not unconnected with his role as the former first lady’s aide.
