Bodies Of BDC Operators & Cultists Found Dumped In Septic Tank In Ikorodu Lagos
4 bodies dumped inside septic tanks at Ikorodu by suspected kidnappers have been exhumed, the police said on Thursday.
The corpses included those of 2 Bureau De Change (BDC) operators- Alhaji Yakubu Musa and Alhaji Hassan Umaru- killed by kidnappers after their abduction on April 14 and two others said to be suspected cultists.
The operators were lured by the kidnappers who had contacted them that they had a relation who just returned from overseas and wanted to change $10,000.
According to The Nation, three members of the syndicate killed the BDC operators after allegedly collecting N1.6 million from them.
The suspects identified as Oluwatosin Olanrewaju, 40, Mayowa Olawuni alias General and Babatunde Idris (Aloma) upon arrest, confessed to have tied the mouth of the BDC operators, killed them and dumped their bodies in a septic tank to cover their tracks.
According to a statement Thursday evening by spokesman Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), their bodies and two others were recovered from the tanks for autopsy.
