Shocking! Man Hands His Brother Over to Police for Being Stubborn, Only to Discover He was a Wanted Murderer (Photo

The murder suspect, Timilehin Agboyemi

It was gathered that Timilehin Agbeyomi’s brother had handed him over to the police on January 26, 2016 for being stubborn and refusal to do learn the hand work he was sent to learn as an aluminium apprentices. But, at the Bariga Police Station, a policeman discovered that the 18-year-old was among those wanted by the police in connection with the killing of a 20-year-old man, Imohlede Asije.

Asije was allegedly killed by Agbeyomi and his gang sometime in October, 2015, at a party on Oluwafere Street, Bariga.

The police revealed that Agbeyomi and his fellow cult members had attacked the man with weapons, including machetes and guns during a party which later resulted in the death of Imohlede Asije.

It was revealed that after the murder, the police have been looking for ways to arrest Agbeyomi without success until he was brought to the station by fate. The case of the arrested murder suspect was transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba.

On his own part, Agboyemi said even though he belonged to a cult while in secondary school, he didn't kill the man he is being accused of killing.

He said, “I did not kill him. We attended the same secondary school and we were friends. I have known him for a long time. It is true that I am a cult member, but I did not kill him. I belong to the Aiye Confraternity, while he was a member of the Eiye Confraternity. On the day he died, I was at home and did not attend the party where he was killed. I just heard like every other person.

“I am an aluminium apprentice and because of some things, I was not going to work. My elder brother, who was not happy with my behaviour decided to use the police to teach me a lesson. On Tuesday last week, he handed me over to the police and it was while I was there that they brought up this matter.”

The police arraigned him on Thursday before an Ebute-Meta Magistrate’s Court on five counts of murder and belonging to an unlawful society.

The charges read in part, “That you, Timilehin Agbeyomi, and others at large, on October 24, 2015, at about 5.30am, on Oluwafere Street, Bariga, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did conspire among yourselves to commit felony to wit: murder.

“That you, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district, did kill one Imohlede Asije, aged 20 years, by shooting him on his stomach and cutting him with a machete on the head.”

The police prosecutor, Sergeant Olatunde Kehinde, said the offences were punishable under sections 231, 221, 409, 41 and 42 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.

The magistrate, Mrs. Bola Folarin-Williams, ordered that he should be remanded in prison for the first 30 days permitted by law. She asked the police to duplicate the case file and forward same to the DPP for legal advice.

The case was adjourned till March 2, 2016.
