May 15, 2014 – Police Arrest Hired Killers Sent To Kill Lagos Businessman, Ade Lexus..Bobby Ibadan Declared Wanted
The Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Lagos State has apprehended three men allegedly hired by an Ibadan-based hotelier, Mr. Adebayo Orekoya, aka Bobby Ibadan, for attempting to assassinate a Lagos socialite and businessman, Mr. Victor Adelakun, aka Ade Lexus.
The suspects Ibrahim Lawal, 27; Yomi Olanrewaju, 25; and Emmanuel Adewale, 25 confessed that Bobby Ibadan gave them an advance of N140,000 to kill Ade Lexus, his former business partner. A statement from the police reads;
“Around 1am on May 10, 2014, information was received that four assassins were sent from Ibadan by one Adebayo Orekoya, aka Bobby Ibadan, who lives in Ibadan GRA, Oyo State. The instruction given to the assassins was to kill one Ade Victor Adelakun of Ogudu GRA, Lagos.
Consequently, two SARS teams proceeded to the night club where the suspects were planning their attack. Three men, Ibrahim Lawal, 27; Yomi Olanrewaju, 25; and Emmanuel Adewale, 25; were arrested, while their identified only driver, as Samuel, escaped in a Sienna Spacebus.
Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed that Bobby Ibadan sent them to kill Ade Lexus, his former business partner. N100,000 out of the N140,000 given to the suspects as mobilisation fee have been recovered as well as a picture of the victim.”
The target, Ade Lexus says he still did not understand why Bobby Ibadan would want to terminate his life;
“Bobby is not my business associate, He is not my friend either. A friend of mine in the United Kingdom was the one that introduced him to me. I have met with Bobby only on a few occasions.
If he had succeeded with the assassination, no one would have suspected him because he does not stay in Lagos and we do not chat often. He told me to lend him money a while ago for a business project, but I turned him down. Maybe that is what made him angry.
Also, the arrested suspects said Bobby alleged that I snatched his wife. That is not true; I am a happily married man with beautiful children,” Ade Lexus said.
