Why We Killed APC Member In Festac


Four suspects who allegedly murdered a stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Festac, Emmanuel Ubah alias Onwa, have been arrested by
Operatives of the Inspector-General of Police’ Intelligence Response Team.
Ubah, was shot four times on the head while inside his car by assailants, who threw all his mobile phones into the canal.
Onwa’s death sparked outrage in Amuwo Odofin, with his friends and associates insisting that it was politically motivated.
After months of tracking the culprits, the police Monday paraded Michael Fashola, Mufutau Tokosi alias TK, Abidemi Adeleye alias Baido and Fatai Onifade alias Apashe.
The suspects were said to have been contracted to kill Ubah but they denied the allegation, insisting that they murdered him because they felt threatened by his influence in the area.
It was gathered that the suspects, who fled to Cotonou after allegedly committing the offence, later had a disagreement on the balance of their payment. They were said to have been embroiled in fights with Onifade, who was allegedly their link to the person who ordered the murder.
Parading the suspects, acting Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal said a Barreta Pistol, two live ammunition and one pump action gun were recovered from them.
Confessing to the crime, Fashola said: “I did not know the Onwa. It was TK who contacted me. Baido asked him to call me for the deal.
The initial plan was to harass Onwa but I shot him by mistake. I shot him more than once. It was on his head. Baido was inside the car with him. They told us where to meet them. I was not paid anything.
I gave the gun back to Apashe after shooting him.
Onifade, who was the mastermind of the attack, said he was bitter because the deceased was very powerful.
We did not plan to kill him. We just wanted to shakara him. I am an OPC member and I know the number of times I have been shot at. I felt he was the one sponsoring the boys that usually attacked me.
