Feb 23, 2016 – Picture: Omo Onile Gang Member Arrested With SIM Card Of MTN Worker Killed By Armed Robbers Claims Innocence
Abiodun Fagbore,a self-acclaimed Omo Onile (Land Grabber) in Lagos has been arrested by the police for possessing SIM card of a man killed by robbers.
This is what Lagos CP, Owoseni said about the suspect last Friday:
“This is a case of murder. On November 20, 2015, one Mr Wale Olawunmi of 17 Adebisi Nagana Street, Ikotun, Lagos reported through a petition that on October 21, his brother named David Olatunji Olawunmi, a staff of MTN Communication who left his house in Goshen Estate Redeemed Camp Mowe, around 5:30am to join their staff bus at Mowe Tipper Garage, was robbed and stabbed to death by unknown hoodlums.”
“Based on the analysis conducted on the activation of the victim’s phones, one of the phone numbers – 07035921551 – was found to have been used on October 22, 2015.
“It was further revealed that the said phone number was registered by one Biodun Fagbore. He was consequently arrested and on interrogation, he admitted being the owner of the said SIM card and claimed to have bought the said phone but could not produce the source.
“He also claimed to have given the phone with SIM card to one of his boys whom he could not produce; obviously the circumstantial evidence has linked him up with the complicity.
His body, he said, was recovered at Tipper garage without his phones.
Fagbore said: “I bought SIM for people. I did not know that they can commit offence with SIM cards. I don’t even charge them a dime. The one that brought problem was the one I gave to an Okada rider who rides motorcycle for me, so that he can call me in case police disturb him. I registered five SIM with my name at Mowe. I did not know that problem will come.”
