54-year-old child trafficker, Dauda Bello who the Ogun State Police Command arrested has revealed that he killed his business partner Mesesi Adisa because of money.
According to Bello, “I have known the victim Adisa for quite some time now. We are both into the business of child trafficking.
Explaining further, Bello said, “I invited Adisa on that fateful day to discuss our usual business, but on getting to my house, I discovered that she came with a huge amount of money.” So I hit her with a heavy wooden stick on her head. As soon as she became unconscious I carried her unconscious body to the bush where he finally sniffed life out of her.”
“I was disappointed when I searched her body, I discovered that she had only N22,200 (twenty-two thousand, two hundred naira). So I cut off her two wrists and ankles and sold them to raise more money since my aim of getting much money from her was in vain.”
Nigeriacrime.com gathered that Dauda Bello was arrested on the 7th of July 2022 after the relation of the victim then reported a case of a missing person at Sabo/Ilupeju police station.
During the investigation, SP Taiwo Opadiran and his team traced the last place visited by the victim to the house of the suspect in Olodo area of Imala. The suspect was subsequently arrested and taken into custody for investigation.
Thereafter, the suspect took the Police to the bush where he buried the victim in a shallow grave, and the dismembered body had been recovered and deposited in the mortuary.
Confirming the arrest, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi Police Public Relations Officer Ogun State Command said the case was later transferred to the anti-kidnapping unit of the state criminal investigation department where technical and the intelligence-based investigation was embarked upon.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, who commended the team for a thorough job has ordered that the case be charged to court as soon as the investigation is concluded. He also directed that anybody directly or indirectly involved in the case should be brought to book.
