Lekan Akanbi, the accused perpetrator of the murder of Mr. Kehinde, a former Central Bank of Nigeria employee, and his wife, Bukola, on January 1 in Ogun State, has said that he killed the couple and their son over a denied request for a pay increase.


The pair refused to raise his pay, he claimed, and when he asked them for a loan to buy a motorcycle, they turned him down.


He stated that he committed the act because the dead refused to fulfill his request and approve his salary.


The suspect said he hired two cultists to kill the couple and their sole son, Oreoluwa, when he was paraded by the Ogun State Police Command on Friday.


His escape “further strengthened the police suspicion of his involvement through the intelligence-driven inquiry by the Commissioner of Police who instructed the State anti-kidnapping unit to team up with the homicide section in order to apprehend the escaped driver and his accomplices.


According to the CP’s instructions, the two teams launched a technical and intelligence-driven investigation and tracked the suspect to his older brother in Iseyin, Oyo State, but he had already departed before the police arrived.


“The teams continued to step up their operations, which produced fruitful outcomes when Lekan Adekanbi was captured on January 21, 2023, in his hiding someplace in Abeokuta.


“On February 9th, 2023, Waheed Adeniyi, also known as Koffi, and Ahmed Odetola, also known as Akamo, were captured in Ogere.


The three suspects, who are all Aiye confraternity members, have all admitted to their individual parts in the brutal and cold-blooded killing of the family.
