Brothers robbed their grandfather of 550k and murdered his wife: Two brothers identified as Akinola Akeem and Muyiwa Akeem and their native doctor, Odunta Moses, have been arrested by operatives of the of the Nigeria Police Force Intelligence Response Team (IRT).
The suspects said to be members of a notorious robbery gang that has been terrorizing Ijebu Mushin area of Ogun State for a long time, were arrested after they attacked the home of Pa Olutokunbo, in Ikala Village of Ijebu Mushin, killing his 72-year-old wife, Christiana Olutokunbo and robbing him of the sum of N550,000 and three mobile phones.
An investigation which was carried out after one of Pa Olutokunbo’s sons who is based in the United Kingdom petitioned the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, led to the arrest of one of the users of the stolen mobile phone.
The stolen phone user led the police to Akinola Akeem who confessed during investigations that he had carried out some operations within Ijebu Mushin area of Ogun state including the robbery in Pa Olutokunbo’s house and the killing of his 72-year-old wife.
He led the security operatives to arrest his younger brother, Muyiwa who also took part in the operation and their native doctor, Oduntan Moses, who prepared charms for them before their operation.
Confessing to the crime, Muyiwa said “I have gone on three robbery operations and I killed a woman in my last operation. Myself and my younger brother formed the gang because we were frustrated.
In the first operation, I made N5,000 and in the second one, I got N9,000. The third operation was at Ikala, where we killed the old woman. Before going for that robbery, I first went to Koba, a powerful native doctor in my community to prepare charms for me and my brother.
“We got information about Pa Olutokunbo, because he talked carelessly. He was in a bar and was talking about the money he had in his house which my brother overheard. We then went and consulted a native doctor to prepare charms for us to make us succeed in the operation. “We asked Koba, to check if the man had the money in his house and he said yes, we then asked him to give us charms that would enable us appear inside the man’s house.”
