Police Parade Six Alleged Killers of Sound Engineer in Lagos
The Lagos State Police Command yesterday paraded six persons who allegedly killed a sound engineer, David Sunday in Lekki, Lagos, recently.
According to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, who addressed journalists while parading the suspects, Sunday was killed when he was invited to settle a dispute between a commercial motorcycle rider and two of his passengers.
“On May 12, 2022, around 6.30pm, at Studio 24, Lekki, Lagos, an Okada rider by the name Dahiru, had a quarrel with his passengers, Frank Olatunji and Philip Balogun, over the bike fare.
“In the heat of the argument, Frank Olatunji and Philip Balogun invited one David Sunday to mediate only for Dahiru and his cohorts to violently attack him, kill him, and set him ablaze.
“A total of six suspects, Dahiru Ayuba, Susan Moses, Christopher Dauda, Joseph Tella, Chigozie Anthony, and Sunday Azi, have been arrested. Suspects will be charged to court after the investigation.”
The Police Commissioner also paraded other people that allegedly engaged in cult wars that claimed the lives of some of them. “On February 20, 2022, one Ayo Dada, now deceased and two others who were cult members were killed by some suspected rival cult members at Ketu, Mile 12, Lagos.
“On February 21, 2022, one Sunday Tomoloju and other members of his cult group went on a reprisal mission to avenge their late members and killed one Adesegun Adesanya, aka Ologodudu.
“Upon receipt of this information, detectives tracked down the principal suspect, Sunday Tomoloju to his remote stronghold where he was apprehended. During the investigation, the suspect made a confessional statement to the commission of the said crime.
“Investigation is still ongoing to apprehend other fleeing suspects in a bid to recover their operational weapons.”
Alabi listed those killed in the cult wars as Ayo Dada, Adesegun Adesanya, aka Ologodudu, and three others were killed during reprisal attacks by rival cult members.
