Naval Officer allegedly beats his Wife to death in Lagos

An official of the Western Naval Command, Apapa, Lagos, Omojoye Ayodele, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly killing his wife, Mary Egbailo.

According to Newsmen, Ayodele on Tuesday allegedly beat up the victim till she gave up the ghost at their house on Eze Anthony Street, in the Igando, Alimosho area of the state.

Punch gathered that the 30-year-old suspect had gone to bring back the wife from the Cherubim and Seraphim Church in the area, where she was said to have been since Sunday.
Shortly after they entered their room-and-parlour apartment, an argument reportedly ensued between them, which led to a fight.

The Ebute Irele, Ondo State indigene, allegedly beat his 29-year-old wife till she became weak and died.

She was said to have been rushed to El Dunamis Hospital, a private medical centre in the area, where she was confirmed dead.

An official of the hospital told Punch on Wednesday that Egbailo was confirmed dead while in a tricycle that brought her in company with her husband and two women.

The official, who did not want to be identified, said the husband claimed she took a local insecticide, Sniper.

He said, “She was brought around 11.30am in a tricycle. A man, who wore military uniform and claimed to be her husband, was screaming that she took Sniper insecticide.

“Doctors went to check her in the tricycle and it was discovered that she was dead. We immediately asked that she should be transferred to a general hospital. The husband was shouting to the hearing of everybody that she took Sniper.”

Punch gathered that the victim would have been taken to her hometown for burial, but for the insistence of the landlady, who maintained that Egbailo did not take Sniper, but was a victim of domestic violence.

The case was said to have been reported at the Igando Police Division, leading to the arrest of Ayodele for allegedly beating the victim to death.

The landlady, who spoke with Punch on the condition of anonymity, alleged that Ayodele had been assaulting his wife since 2016.

She explained that on the morning of her death, Egbailo did not show any sign of depression.

She said, “The man complained that for the past three days, his wife had been away from the house and gone to a church.

“Around 10am on Tuesday, both of them entered into the house. I guess he had just gone to pick her from church.

“It was not up to three minutes that I started hearing noise. I went to their apartment and asked the man what the problem was, but he pushed me away and kept hitting her. He dragged her on the floor, among other things.”

She said she ran out to call for help when the beating was excessive.

The landlady claimed that as other residents approached the house to mediate, the suspect threw his wife into the gutter.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said the corpse had been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.

This video is an incident of what happened to my colleague yesterday. N500K was taken from her locked car at Mobil Filling station, Agidingbi. She went to GTB, Alausa to withdraw N500K, and kept it under her car seat. When she drove out, she saw a car coming behind her, not knowing there were actually 2 cars following her. So when she got to FBN, Agidingbi, she indicated as if she was going back the way she came, so the car she saw following her passed her to go ahead of her to the side she indicated to, which is the Lexus jeep.

On seeing that the car had passed, she now decided to enter Mobil so that they could go completely, not knowing that another car was still behind her. She parked and went into Mr. Biggs to allow them to go, bought a bottle of water and before she came out, her door had been opened and her money stolen! The CCTV in Mr Biggs, captured the professional way the thieves operated. Watch………this clip and take lessons please.

Our correspondent gathered that the 30-year-old suspect had gone to bring back the wife from the Cherubim and Seraphim Church in the area, where she was said to have been since Sunday.

Shortly after they entered their room-and-parlour apartment, an argument reportedly ensued between them, which led to a fight.

The Ebute Irele, Ondo State indigene, allegedly beat his 29-year-old wife till she became weak and died.

She was said to have been rushed to El Dunamis Hospital, a private medical centre in the area, where she was confirmed dead.

An official of the hospital told our correspondent on Wednesday that Egbailo was confirmed dead while in a tricycle that brought her in company with her husband and two women.

The official, who did not want to be identified, said the husband claimed she took a local insecticide, Sniper.

He said, “She was brought around 11.30am in a tricycle. A man, who wore military uniform and claimed to be her husband, was screaming that she took Sniper insecticide.

“Doctors went to check her in the tricycle and it was discovered that she was dead. We immediately asked that she should be transferred to a general hospital. The husband was shouting to the hearing of everybody that she took Sniper.”

ADELOVE gathered that the victim would have been taken to her hometown for burial, but for the insistence of the landlady, who maintained that Egbailo did not take Sniper, but was a victim of domestic violence.

The case was said to have been reported at the Igando Police Division, leading to the arrest of Ayodele for allegedly beating the victim to death.

The landlady, who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, alleged that Ayodele had been assaulting his wife since 2016.

“Around 10am on Tuesday, both of them entered into the house. I guess he had just gone to pick her from church.

“It was not up to three minutes that I started hearing noise. I went to their apartment and asked the man what the problem was, but he pushed me away and kept hitting her. He dragged her on the floor, among other things.”

She said she ran out to call for help when the beating was excessive.

The landlady claimed that as other residents approached the house to mediate, the suspect threw his wife into the gutter.

“I begged her to wait outside till her husband calm down, but she said she wanted him to kill her,” she added.

She explained that the victim entered the house again and was beaten up until she became weak.

“She could not walk, so I decided to take her to a hospital. But nobody was willing to help me. If we had a vehicle on time, we would have probably saved her life. We were in front of my shop for about one hour, without any help.

“She was still talking to me before she passed out. The last request she made was that she needed palm oil,” she said.

She said after the victim passed out, a tricycle was brought, which then conveyed her to El Dunamis Hospital, where she was confirmed dead by doctors.

She said she decided to report the case to the police to prevent the suspect from escaping justice.

The landlady described her as gentle, saying for the past four years that she lived in the house, she never had a quarrel with her.

“We discussed together and she always shared her challenges with me. When her father came after she died, he kept saying his daughter never told him what was going on in her marriage. She was always covering up for him,” she said.

Our correspondent gathered that in 2011, the couple had a child together, named Israel.

Efforts to have another child were said to have been abortive. The issue was reported to have been responsible for the tension in the family.

Our correspondent observed a motorcycle, which reportedly belonged to Ayodele, in the compound.

The landlady threatened to eject him from the house for allegedly hitting her during the scuffle which led to the death of his wife.

A close friend of the deceased, who did not identify herself, said Egbailo did not give her any impression that she was being assaulted by her husband.

She said the husband told her that Egbailo had been abducted since Sunday when she went to church and was returned by the captors who discovered she was not useful for their money ritual.

She said, “The man said on that Tuesday, they had an argument after which she threatened to kill herself. The man said he joked with her that if she wanted to kill herself she should go ahead. He said in a jiffy, she had taken a bottle of Sniper and drank it. He rushed to my shop to call me that his wife was dying.

“We rushed her to the hospital where she died. It was later I was told she had been a victim of domestic abuse. She had never opened her mouth to tell me anything like that.”

The spokesperson for the Western Naval Command, Apapa, Lt. Commander Chinwe Umar, said Egbailo committed  suicide.

“From the information available to me, the woman in question allegedly drank Sniper,” she said.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said the corpse had been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy.

She said, “We received a report that a naval rating fought his wife and she slumped and was rushed to El Dunamis Hospital, where the doctors confirmed her dead. The corpse was deposited in the Mainland General Hospital mortuary for autopsy. The case is under investigation.”

The landlord who had an altercation with a tenant over the man’s dog allegedly proceeded to kill the dog and hang it. The incident reportedly happened at Sapade along Lagos-Ibadan Express way.

According to a source familiar with the story, the tenant moved into the building with his dog just two weeks ago.

The landlord told the tenant that dogs were not allowed in his compound and told the tenant he should keep his dog within his rented apartment which was not entirely possible.

The tenant and the landlord argued about this for days and when he returned from work yesterday, he found his dog hanging from the building’s roof. It was dead.

Other tenants testified seeing the landlord around the dog owners apartment earlier in the day but who do you report something like this to?

Man Looses Life During Fight Over Prostitute In Lagos

A man, identified only as Asunmo, has been detained at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, Lagos State, for allegedly killing a driver, Sodiq Fatai.

ADELOVE learnt that Asunmo stabbed Fatai to death with a knife at the White Sand area of Ijora Badia, during a scuffle over a prostitute.

The suspect was said to have challenged the victim over his relationship with the lady, whom he (Asunmo) was dating.

Despite his denial, Asunmo was alleged to have attacked the victim and fled the area.

A community leader, who did not want to be identified, said his attention was called to Fatai’s corpse, which was abandoned on a heap of refuse in the area.

He said, “I was told that the two men fought and one stabbed the other to death. The police from the Ijora Badia came to take the corpse away.”

When our correspondent approached other residents, they said they were informed by friends.

However, a woman, who did not identify herself, said the two men were drunk.

Another resident said the victim was a driver, while the suspect had no job.

A police source said Asunmo and Fatai had a disagreement over a woman.

He said, “Asunmo suspected that Fatai was dating his girlfriend and he confronted him. Although the man denied, he attacked and killed him. The woman in question is a prostitute.”

Notorious Fraudster, Segun aka Okadigbo Arrested By RRS In Lagos

A suspected kingpin of a notorious syndicate of fraudsters, one Segun (surname withheld), whose gang specialised in defrauding unsuspecting Nigerians, has been arrested by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Lagos State Police Command.

Newsmen learnt that the suspect, popularly known as Okadigbo, was apprehended last weekend by the decoy team of the RRS in his shrine at Ijora area of the state in connection with fraud allegedly perpetrated by the four-man gang under him.

The syndicate, headed by the suspect, was reported to have duped a lady (names withheld) about a year ago on her way from Ikorodu towards Mile 12 to purchase some goods. The fraud was said to have been supervised by the kingpin’s suspected accomplice, Christian (surname withheld).

Through the preliminary investigation carried out by the RRS, it was discovered that Segun had been the arrowhead of a number of fraud syndicates operating in different parts of Lagos and Ogun states, with members of his syndicate reporting to his shrine regularly to plan their activities.

Newsmen further gathered that four of Segun’s accomplices had earlier been arrested by the operatives of RRS and they had mentioned him as their syndicate leader, leading to his arrest last weekend after he had been evasive for about a year.

In his confession to the police, Segun admitted being a fraudster, disclosing that he used to act as a herb-seller in parts of Lagos, but denied being the syndicate leader.

According to him, “it is true that other fraudsters used my shrine and office. They brought their victims there but everybody operated individually. Although, the fake dollar notes they used were mine, I don’t know anything about the operation for which they were arrested.

“I operated by selling herbs but I used to sell the idea of quick-money rituals to people, as well as herbs for people looking for fruit of the womb. I used to do spiritual bath for clients and that was how I defrauded people and made my money.”

In his confessional statement, Christian, said to be the leader of the syndicate that duped the female victim, said: “We robbed her about a year ago. We took all she had from her, including N300,000 and recharge cards of all networks worth N120,000. Okadigbo (Segun) is our master whom most of us report to at least thrice in a week.”

“All of us, about nine groups that I know, reported to him. We operated in different parts of the metropolis. He was so powerful and fiery that no police dared arrest him. Now, I am shocked seeing him here with us in police custody.”

Another syndicate member, Toyin (surname withheld) also told the police that it was greed which made her join the gang two years ago. “I was a stylist and doing well before I joined them. When I saw how they were spending money on ladies like me, I moved closer to them to know their secret.

“Initially, they were reluctant to tell me, but I pressed on until one of them asked me if I could keep a secret. He opened up and I joined them.”

Speaking further, she said: “My main assignment was to act as someone carrying foreign currencies who didn’t know her destination.”

Recounting her ordeal, the victim said: “It was on a Wednesday afternoon, January 13, 2016 to be precise, and I was on my way to the market. The lady among them flagged me down by calling Sabo passengers from Ikorodu garage.

“When I saw the lady in the bus calling for prospective passengers, I didn’t have any doubt. Immediately I jumped in and sat beside her. I saw three other men inside the bus.

“Suddenly, as we were progressing, the lady begged me to help her with my phone to make phone calls, giving the excuse that she had no credit on hers.

“As a lady, I handed over my phone to her and she made two separate calls on my phone. As we moved, the driver took another route which I didn’t know.

“I queried the driver, asking him where he was taking me to, but he refused to respond. Suddenly, they pulled over in the middle of the way, the driver pointed a gun at me and the lady showed me a knife, asking me to cooperate.

“They ransacked my bag and removed all the money I had with me, including the recharge cards. They dropped me and spedoff.”

Confirming the incident, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Superintendent of Police Dolapo Badmos, said that the suspects had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation, adding that they would be charged to court upon completion of investigation.

Dangote Establishes Truck Assembly Plant In Lagos

Dangote Group of Companies has established a $100 million truck assembly plant in Lagos as part of its efforts to boost foreign exchange and job creation.

The group said in a statement on Sunday in Lagos that the plant was floated by the group in partnership with National Heavy Duty Truck Group Company Limited, (SINOTRUK), a Chinese firm.

Mr Anthony Chiejina, the Chief Corporate Communication Officer of Dangote Group said the plant, located in Ikeja, has the capacity to produce 10,000 trucks annually.

He stated that before now, Dangote had been spending heavily on importing trucks to distribute its products both locally and across African countries.

Chiejina said the conglomerate owned 60 per cent stake in the assembly plant while SINOTRUK holds 40 per cent, in a partnership that was formed in 2014.

According to him, the plant is expected to create 3,000 direct employments when fully operational.

Nigeria is a major market for SINOTRUK products, with Dangote Group, operating the largest fleet in Africa, having over 10,000 trucks for the distribution of its products across the continent.

Chiejina said the new company would save Nigeria huge foreign exchange being spent on importation of heavy duty vehicles.

According to him, there will be room for project expansion in future as it meets the national truck demand and will explore exportation to neighbouring countries to generate foreign exchange for the nation.

Chiejina said Aliko Dangote believed that the current economic challenges would make Nigeria stronger if approached positively.

“Alhaji Aliko still believes that Nigeria is one of the best places in the world to do business,’’ he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the assembly plant is coming ahead of a $17 billion Dangote Refinery, petrochemical and fertiliser plants also located in Lagos that would have the capacity to produce 650,000 barrels per day when it commences operation.

The refinery is expected to begin operations in 2019.

The refinery, which is expected to create over 300,000 direct and indirect jobs, would require several haulage trucks for product distribution.

Dangote Group imported 12,000 trucks from China in 2014.

SINOTRUK is the largest exporter of trucks in China for 10 consecutive years, securing a sale of 34,000 trucks out of the 176,000 vehicles exported in 2014.

It (SINOTRUK) revenue from overseas sales amounted to 9 billion yuan ($1.45 billion), accounting for about 13 per cent of the total sales.

NAN also reports that SINOTRUCK is a Chinese state-owned truck manufacturer, established in 1956, with its headquarters in Jinan, Shandong Province.

The company developed strategic technical partnerships with major international brands such as Steyr in Austria and Mann in Germany, all of which had helped it penetrate key global markets. (NAN)
