Hired killer falls in love with target,
demands sex to spare her life

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 24-year-old suspect, Tayo
Adeyemi, who confessed to have been
hired to kill a female hotel lodger in the
Alakija, Satellite Town area of the state.

Adeyemi, who hails from Kwara State, told
reporters that he was arrested by the police
after he sneaked into the hotel, White House, and demanded that his target,
simply known as Rosemary, had sex with
him so he would spare her life..

Adeyemi, who dropped out of senior
secondary school, was arrested by the
Satellite Town Police Division last Thursday. It was learnt that penultimate
Wednesday, Adeyemi was brought by two
gang members on a motorcycle to the hotel
to kill Rosemary.

However, once Adeyemi laid his eyes on
his supposed target, he reportedly fell in
love with her and eventually attempted to
rape her after she rebuffed his pleas to
have sex with him.

Rosemary, however, raised the alarm.
The hotel management subsequently called
the police, and Adeyemi was arrested.
Punch correspondent learnt that one
locally-made pistol and a live cartridge
were recovered from Adeyemi, who had
been transferred to the Special Anti-
Robbery Squad, Ikeja. The police said the
suspect belonged to a three-man gang,
adding that a manhunt had been launched
for the fleeing two gang members.

Speaking with PUNCH Metro, Adeyemi said
he gave the woman N1,500 to have sex
with her, adding that he fell in love with
his target.

Adeyemi, who spoke in pidgin English,
said, “I was working as a casual worker at
a bottling company in the Apapa area
before I met the gang members in the
Ajegunle area. A friend, Wisdom, had
invited me to stay in his house.

“His friends, who are Eiye Confraternity members, saw me and said they had a job for me. They said the job was to kill a woman. I said I could not do such a job, but they threatened to kill me and since they had guns, I was afraid.

“Finally, I was left with no option but to do
their wish. One of them, Ahmed, gave me
the gun and they brought me on a
motorcycle to the hotel. But when I got to
the hotel room and saw the woman, I fell
in love with her and I had mercy on her.

“I told her that I was sent to kill her, but
since I loved her, I would just have sex
with her. When she declined, I offered her
N1,500, and said I would take her
necklaces and wristwatch away and lie to
my gang members that she had been killed.
But she raised the alarm.

“Everyone in the hotel called the police, the
Oodua Peoples’ Congress and other
vigilance groups. The hotel management
called the police at the Satellite Town

“When my parents heard about my arrest,
they were disappointed. I told them that I
was being threatened by the cult members.
I did not mean to kill the lady. Otherwise, I
would have shot her and run away.”
