TRAG1C: How Soldiers K1lled My Aide – Senator Solomon Adeola | READ DETAILS

Senator Solomon Adeola, the member representing Ogun West Federal Constituency, has accused soldiers attached with 9 Brigade, Ikeja Cantonment of the Nigeria Army of k1lling his aide identified as Adeniyi Sanni.

Sanni was said to have been sh0t dead on Saturday, August 5, 2023, at a checkpoint around the Ojodu-Berger Area of Lagos state on his way to his home at Isheri by “security agents.”

Senator Adeola in a statement released on Monday, August 21 and signed by his media aide, Kayode Odunaro, said his aide was stopped at the checkpoint by soldiers who requested that he provides the car documents.

Sanni was said to have contacted his wife who sent the documents to him via WhatsApp.

Subsequently, the wife called a while later, and Sanni told her that the soldiers were still checking the vehicle’s documents.

That was the last she heard from her husband, and the remains of Sanni, ridden with bullets, were later discovered at the Toyota Bus Stop area of Oshodi, close to a military barrack.

“I am of the firm belief, based on available facts at the disposal of the Police, that my aide was k1lled by a syndicate of soldiers operating under the newly deployed Commander of 9 Brigade, Ikeja Cantonment of the Nigeria Army, Brigadier General Nsikan Edet, through the mounting of checkpoints and robbing of lone occupants of cars.



“Top police sources familiar with the investigation informed me that a similar brutal k1lling and armed robbery occurred around the same Ojodu-Berger late Thursday night of August 17, 2023, resulting in the k1lling of another Nigerian whose body was discovered around Iyana-Ipaja after he was taken away by soldiers from the checkpoint.

“Unknown to the soldiers, the occupant of the car they k1lled and took away his car was the second car in a convoy of two heading towards the same destination.

“The first car passed the soldier’s checkpoint, but the second car was stopped to check his vehicle’s papers.”

“On noticing the absence of the second car after a while, the occupant of the first car (name withheld) placed a call to his colleague in the second car, who informed him that he was being taken to Iyana Ipaja by the soldiers at the checkpoint.

“That was the last he heard from him, and his dead body was later discovered dumped on the road, just like Mr Sanni.

“The survivor in the first car reported the case to the Police, and a pattern of armed robbery and killing in the area involving men in Army uniforms was established.”

“To date, the black Toyota Camry of Mr Sanni, his phones, and other valuables are yet to be recovered,” the senator said.

He called on the Chief of Army Staff, Maj. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, to ensure that proper investigation is carried out and the perpetrators of the crime are brought to book.
