R Operatives of the Lagos State Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) Ikeja yesterday exhumed the dead bodies of a woman and her daughter killed and buried in a room by a suspected fraudster. The decomposing bodies were exhumed in the suspect’s one room apartment at No, 9 Wadoye Street, Pipeline Ajuwon, Ogun state. The suspect, Alhaji Olatunji Azeez, had allegedly abducted the 64-year old retired customs officer, Angela Uzo Kery and her adopted 10-year-old daughter, Obiagulum after selling the woman’s landed property. The younger sister of the retired customs officer, Susan, was the person that reported to the police at Oko-Oba Division that her elder sister and daughter were missing. It was gathered that when Susan paid a visit to her sister on 31st May, she discovered that the customs officer and her daughter had not returned home since 10th May when they went for a prayer session at Sango area of Ogun State. The police were told that the victim left home in her Toyota Camry car marked LND 554 A2, which was later traced to an uncompleted building in Alakuko area of Lagos through a tracker. When the police team from Oko-Oba and Alakuko divisions visited the building, two suspects, Ahmed Sholotan and Waliu Akiniyi, were arrested in connection with the missing car. It was learnt that the owner of the uncompleted building is living in the United States but asked Akiniyi to take care of the building. When Akiniyi was arrested, he told the police that Sholotan told him to keep the car for him until they find a buyer. The police arrested Sholoton, who took them to Sango, where Azeez was arrested. It was alleged that the suspect offered N9 million bribe to the police to persuade them not to proceed with theinvestigation, which was turned down by the officers in charge. During interrogation, Azeez allegedly confessed to the police that he deceived the customs officer he was a spiritualist and told her that her family members were after her property and wanted to kill her . The suspect told the police that he sold the woman’s property at Ajah for N180 million, the one at Omole for N75 million and the one at Oko Oba for N120 million, without the consent of the owner. Azeez, in a bid to cover up the dastardly act, invited the deceased customs officer and her adopted daughter for prayers at Sango, where he kidnapped and killed them. He took the remains of the woman and the 12-year-old girl to a building at Ajuwon, which he reportedly just acquired, and buried them in a shallow grave. Azeez also confessed to the police that he had to kill the young girl to completely erase traces of the murder to him.
