Killer Togolese Cook Finally Confesses To Murder As Police Present CCTV Footage, Narrates How Chief Bademosi Was Murdered

I Stabbed My Boss Chief Bademosi To Death During Robbery – Killer Togolese Cook Sunday Adefonou Anani

The Togolese cook arrested for allegedly killing his boss, Chief Opeyemi Bademosi, has confessed how he committed the murder.

Police quoted him as saying that he stabbed the late Bademosi, 67, the chief executive officer of Credit Switch Ltd, twice in the chest.

A statement yesterday by police spokesman Chike Oti said the 22-year-old suspect allegedly killed his master at their 3B, Onikoyi Lane, Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos home.

Recalling the incident that led to the death of the Ondo-born chief, the spokesman said the late business mogul on October 28 brought the suspect to Lagos to work as his cook.

Oti said:

“Three days later, precisely on October 31, the suspect with the intention to rob the deceased, went to his room through the kitchen, to the lobby and then to the room, which was the scene of crime, when he observed that the deceased’s wife, Ebunola, had left home for a transaction in a commercial bank in their neighbourhood.

“According to the suspect, when he got to the deceased’s room and met him on the bed, he said  ‘Chief I am not here to kill you’. The deceased asked him, ‘what do you want?’ He replied, ‘money.’ The deceased said he had no money in the house. At that juncture, the suspect said he tied him up with a cloth and put him on the floor. He said while the deceased was on the floor, he kicked him, making the knife he tucked inside his pants to fall off. He said the deceased crawled to pick the knife, but he (suspect) was faster. He struggled with him and the knife accidentally pierced the deceased. He said when he was leaving the room, the deceased took the knife to stab him, so he kicked him and he fell. He (the suspect) then took the knife and stabbed him twice in the chest.

“He said after killing his boss, he entered his bathroom and threw away his apron already stained with blood and the kitchen knife he used to kill him. He later heard a knock on the kitchen door, sensing it must be the deceased’s wife; he ran out of the room and exited from the sitting room.

“The suspect said he was confronted by the guard, Nura Mamudu, who asked him where he was hurrying to and he replied that ‘madam sent me on an errand.’

“Finding himself in the street, he saw men loading cement into a truck. He assisted them and they rewarded him with a lift to Ondo. The truck driver gave him N500 as an appreciation.”

The police said Anani allegedly killed his boss around 8:10am.

“The deceased’s wife, Ebunola, came to the crime scene through the sitting room after knocking several times on the kitchen door without a response from the suspect. She found her husband in a pool of blood and reported the incident to the police. The deceased, a few minutes before his death, called his wife on the phone, complaining that Anani barged in on him in his bedroom. He stabbed the deceased several times in the thoracic region (chest).

“The scene of the crime, which is the deceased’s bedroom, was scattered and stained with blood. The suspect stole his Samsung phone and fled to Ondo State where he was arrested on November 2. The phone was recovered from the suspect. The kitchen knife used in killing the deceased was found inside the deceased’s toilet and the suspect’s apron was found soaked with blood at the scene of the crime,” Oti said.

He said the suspect cried and confessed to the murder after he was confronted with evidence from the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) footage.

The suspect, Oti said, led the investigation team to the crime scene and demonstrated how he carried out the crime.

“Samples recovered from the scene have been handed over to the Forensic and DNA Department of the Ministry of Justice for examination and analysis. The autopsy report attributed the cause of the death to Bilateral Haemothorax, laceration of the lung and intercostal vessels and multiple sharp force traumas to the chest,” he said.

Other suspects, Kofi Friday, Agbeko Ayenahin, Salisu Hussein and Nura Mamudu, who are not linked to the crime, Oti said, will be released to reliable sureties.

The police, he said, have established a prima facie case of robbery/murder against Anani.

Oti said:

“It is evident that the suspect single-handedly committed the crime by stabbing Bademosi to death with a kitchen knife with intent to steal from him. The suspect will be arraigned.

“Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal has directed that the casefile be duplicated and forwarded to the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) for vetting and legal advice. He said criminal investigation has gone beyond the era of rule of thumb to an era of scientific and research based investigation in the command.”

According to Oti, Anani was given a French speaking lawyer from the Office of the Public Defender (OPD), who was with him throughout the investigation.

  1. Is this the final confession or more is coming? In Nigeria, anything can happen, things can be twisted, cctv wasn’t there before they arrested those the guard or cook mentioned? There are so many questions to ask here, so sad that the man was dead already.

    • Very well said. There is more to what happend.
      I pray for the dead man’s spirit to hunt his killer or killers night and day. Amen

  2. Imagine, the wife wanted to gain entry through the kitchen door and not through the front door (2.) That Chief called and complained to his wife that the said Sunday banged into his room uninvited (3.) That Sunday tied the man’s hands without any force or resistance from the man (4.) That it was after the suspect pulled the man to the floor that the man tried to resist and the knife he hid in his trouser fell on the floor (5) That the suspect while on the street helped some workers that were loading a truck (5.) That the security guard questioned him and asked him where he was going and he responded that madam sent him on errand when the madam herself was said to be knocking the kitchen door.
    QUESTIONS:
    Why didn’t the woman pick the security guard at the gate to go in with her when she knew the husband had already complained to her on phone? (2.) Why didn’t the woman raise alarm immediately she entered and saw her husband’s corpse to the extent that the suspect stopped over at the street to help people loading a truck and HE WAITED PATIENTLY until they loaded the truck and travelled to Ondo with them? (3.) When the woman gained entry into the house, why didn’t she raise alarm Immediately (4.) Is the woman the first or second wife of the man? Oun ti oju eniyan ko to, oju Olorun to. RIP baba

  3. @roland , they also said the chiefs samsung phone was stolen by the cook, so which phone did he use to call his wife to tell her ,he was attacked by the cook.

  4. I don’t know the deceased but looking at his picture if he is the one in the above picture indicated that he has 3 times weight of the cook. Where I don’t agree with the report is where they said the cook tight up the deceased with a rope before escaping through the living room. Even if that man did not possess any fighting skill, and if that man really put up a struggle with that boy according to that boy’s statement, then it is going to be little bit tough for this cook to tie this man down plus since if they were only two people in the scene. There is more to this tragedy than to meet the eye.

    In my personal opinion, It is like somebody who has a good knowledge about this incidence trying to shift the blame on that boy. It is either the man’s wife knew more and try to bribe the police although not sure or there are other suspects involved but I know somebody is trying to spend money in order to throw the case under the carpet. The chief wife and maiguard are not innocent in this case. I would have believed if this guy (Cook) said we were 3 in numbers then I may believe because they were many they managed to subdue this man but presenting this case between this man and a cook has some suspicious undertone.

    • Thank you. There is much more to this incident. And is it just me? This boy seem to have a strong resemblance to this man.
