How soldiers robbed and killed my aide — Senator Solomon Adeola

    Published By:

    APC lawmaker representing Ogun West, Senator Solomon Adeola has narrated how Nigeria Army operating at checkpoints around Ikeja axis of Lagos State robbed and killed his aide, Adeniyi Oluwatosin Sanni.

    The Senator lost his senior aide, Sanni, in the early hours of Saturday August 5, 2023.

    Senator Solomon Adeola in a statement he personally signed on Monday, accused soldiers of Nigeria Army of being responsible for his aide’s death.

    According to reports, Sanni was asked to provide the car documents which he did through a call to his wife, who sent all the documents to his phone through WhatsApp.

    Subsequently, the wife called a while later, and the deceased told her soldiers were still checking the vehicle’s documents.

    The senator said: “I am of the firm belief, based on available facts at the disposal of the Police, that his aide was killed by a syndicate of soldiers operating under the newly deployed Commander of 9 Brigade, Ikeja Cantonment of the Nigeria Army, Brigadier General Nsikan Edet, through the mounting of checkpoints and robbing of lone occupants of cars.

    Top police sources familiar with the investigation informed me that a similar brutal killing and armed robbery occurred around the same Ojodu-Berger late Thursday night of August 17, 2023, resulting in the killing of another Nigerian whose body was discovered around Iyana-Ipaja after he was taken away by soldiers from the checkpoint.

    “Unknown to the soldiers, the occupant of the car they killed and took away his car was the second car in a convoy of two heading towards the same destination.

    “The first car passed the soldier’s checkpoint, but the second car was stopped to check his vehicle’s papers.”

    Speaking further, the lawmaker said: “On noticing the absence of the second car after a while, the occupant of the first car (name withheld) placed a call to his colleague in the second car, who informed him that he was being taken to Iyana Ipaja by the soldiers at the checkpoint.

    “That was the last he heard from him, and his dead body was later discovered dumped on the road, just like Mr Sanni.

    The survivor in the first car reported the case to the Police, and a pattern of armed robbery and killing in the area involving men in Army uniforms was established.”

    “To date, the black Toyota Camry of Mr Sanni, his phones, and other valuables are yet to be recovered,” he lamented.

    Senator Solomon Adeola, called on the Chief of Army Staff, Maj. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, to direct the fishing out of the killers of his aide for further investigation, prosecution, and justice for late Sanni.
