One of the murder suspects paraded by the Osun State Police Command, Wahab Hammed, who also is a tailor and part-time motorcyclist has revealed that he killed his friend for intimidating him with his yahoo money.
Glamtush reports that Wahab Hammed, who hails from Modakeke in Osun State was paraded by the Osun Police Command for allegedly killing one Wasiu Oguntade along with Ayobami Adegoke.
Speaking on his relationship with the dead victim Wahab said, “Wasiu was a friend to Sodiq, who is another friend of mine. So, I got to know him through Sodiq. Wasiu was a Yahoo boy and he had been doing it before we got to know each other about a year and three months ago. He was my friend too.”
Wahab said he was also into internet fraud, but was not as ‘fortunate’ as his dead friend Wasiu. “What happened was that Ayobami and I killed Wasiu because he was always oppressing me with the proceeds of his Yahoo Yahoo activities. He was making good money from Yahoo Yahoo. I was into it too, but I was not so lucky. Whenever he made good money, he would come to me and be flaunting it. At times, he would even send me on errand because of the money he had made. One day, an evil plan formed in my mind and I decided to collect money from him. I didn’t plan to kill him.”
Wahab revealed, “The incident happened on Sunday, August 8, this year. We took him to a location far from our residential area in Modakeke under the guise of wanting to sell a parcel of land to him. He had informed me that he wanted to buy land and I told him that I had someone that could get a good location for him.
“I got to know Ayo in town, while working as a commercial motorcyclist. We became friends because we were both commercial motorcyclists. I used to tell Ayo everything that was going on between Wasiu and me; how he was oppressing me with proceeds of the Yahoo Yahoo and all that. It was Ayo that suggested an idea that we could use to obtain money from him.
“So when Wasiu called me that Sunday that he was ready to go and see the land I told him we had found, I immediately informed Ayo and he said I should bring him. Wasiu, Ayo and I went to a place a bit far from the residential area in Modakeke. We went on Wasiu’s motorcycle.
“Wasiu rode the motorcycle, while Ayo gave him the direction to follow. When we got to our destination, Ayo showed Wasiu the land and he checked round. He told us he would think about it before deciding what to do. He also said he would pay in installments. We were about to leave the area when Ayo held Wasiu from the back and hit him with a machete, cutting his head.”
Osun State Police Command said the murder suspects will have their days in court.
