London Returnee, Lagos Hotel Owner Abimbola Olusola Killer, Prime Murder Suspect, Vincent Ehizojie Arrested In Port Harcourt

Lagos Police detectives have finally caught up with the chief suspect in Abimbola Olusola’s gruesome murder.

The London returnee owner of Etashol Hotel and Suites was murdered in cold blood on the 24th of January 2019 by some sacked employees of the hotel located in Ojodu Berger Lagos.

According to Metro Plus, the prime suspect, Vincent Ehizojie (who was arrested in Port Harcourt over the weekend) and his accomplices Henry Lolo and Okechi Ezi, were caught on CCTV footage in the toilet of the hotel on the day they murdered Abimbola and the hotel manager.

Two contract employees who joined the 3 aforementioned killers simply identified as Dubai and Dangote are still on the run.

Here is what Lagos Police CP Edgal Imohimi said about the suspects.

“This deals with a case of carefully planned and executed murder of one Olusola, 56, and Omikunle, 39, by five persons in the employ of the late Olusola.

“The fact of the case was that on Monday, January 25, 2019, around 3am, the Managing Director/CEO of Etashol Hotels and Suites, Olusola, and her Business Manager, Omikunle, were murdered in the said Etashol Hotel and Suites situated in the Ojodu area of the state.

“The plan to rob the deceased businesswoman was hatched by three staff members of the hotel namely: Henry Lolo, Ehizojie and Okechi Ezi, and two contract employees, who were identified by their aliases, Dubai and Dangote.

“According to Ehizojie, a principal suspect, who was arrested in Port Harcourt, where he had gone to take refuge after the heinous act, all the conspirators agreed that they had no future in the company, because they believed that the deceased was miserly. They, therefore, agreed that she must be robbed of her hard-earned local and foreign currencies, being a London returnee.

“In order to have a hitch-free operation, they agreed that Henry Lolo, currently at large, must prepare a fast food called ‘Indomie’, a delicacy loved by all staff members, and laced it with a sleep-inducing stimulant called S. K. to be served to the rest of the workers, who were not part of the conspiracy. Their plan worked as they successfully sent the rest of the workers to early sleep, except the late manager, who was already asleep before he could be served with the meal.”

Imohimi stated that the manager, who woke up when the suspects attempted to steal the card to gain access to Olusola’s room, was strangled, adding that the hotelier was also murdered when they gained access to her bedroom.

He said;

“However, their attempt to steal the access card to the late CEO’s bedroom from the late manager’s pocket proved abortive as he woke up in the process and began to struggle with them at the reception area; in the ensuing scuffle, the manager was strangled. After strangulating the hotel manager, they searched his pockets but couldn’t find the card, so they went upstairs to the late CEO’s room and forced the door opened.

“They met an obviously shocked woman in the room and bound her hands and legs. By the time they were through, the woman had died. The gang stole her money, N50,000, as well as jewelleries and other personal effects, but couldn’t take them out of the hotel for fear of being challenged by a police team stationed close to the hotel. So, they abandoned the loot in the hotel, which had been recovered as exhibits by the homicide detectives investigating the case.

“Investigation has established a prima facie case of conspiracy and murder against the suspects, Vincent Ehizojie and others still at large, for the murder of Olusola and Omikunle. The CCTV footage available to the police clearly showed the role played by each of the participants in the crime.”

Imohimi added that the suspect so far arrested would be charged to court for murder, while efforts were on to arrest others still at large.

      What these bastards did was wrong and should be executed when captured and tried to reveal the others involved. But, Judith your conclusion they are from the East is myopic and shows your state of mind. That the names so far revealed sound Igbo does not mean they are Igbos. A person from the East will know where they came from but not the South East. These people will even tell you they are not Igbos when you classify them as such but when they commit crime uninformed people like you will quickly jump into conclusion they are Ibos. If you care to read the comments from people when this crime occurred, condemnation have been coming from across races and tribes in Nigeria including myself. For you to jump into conclusion they are from the Igbo tribe is not only myopic and stupid but shows your level of intelligence. Irrespective of where they perpetrators of this crime came from they should be dealt with including execution. I don’t know where Judith Omogbon is from but am sure she is not from the South West.

    Why the hurry in taking them to court? They should be in police custody until all the 5 evils are present! Good bye to Nigeria from me!
