FOUR persons have been arrested for the January 23 killing of Ganiyu Ayinla, aide of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos Island boss Kunle Polly.
They were arrested in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, and paraded at the Command Headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos, yesterday by police chief Imohimi Edgal.
They were paraded with 35 others accused of cultism and armed robbery.
They are Bashiru Bashorun (a.k.a Abija), 49, Sunday Balogun (a.k.a Folori), 43, John Oladokun (a.k.a John Ibafo), 43 and Gbolahan Olomokere (a.k.a Motherless Junior), 34.
Edgal said a wine Toyota Camry saloon car marked KTU713EZ and a pump action gun were recovered from them.
“So far, they have all confessed to the crime and went further to mention one Ade Lawyer, who is currently at large as a co-participant in the crime.
“This type of killing has become the trend whenever NURTW election is approaching but this present police administration in Lagos would certainly make it the last. Investigation is ongoing and further development would be communicated to the public as usual,” Edgal said.
