Why we killed ex-VC of FUTA, by suspects

Prof Albert Ilemobade1TWO suspects arrested over the murder of the former Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, Akure, Professor Albert Ilemobade yesterday narrated why and how they committed the terrible act.

The two Daniel Ita, security night-guard and Olayemi Bamitale, his former driver were paraded in Akure by the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Isaac Eke.

The duo, who confessed to the crime and narrated how they murdered the former university don, revealed that they committed the crime for pecuniary reasons: to sell his red Toyota Rav 4 Jeep.

According to the CP, immediately, the late VC was declared missing, Ondo State Police Command sent signals to other police outposts in the country in frantic search of the late Professor, who was initially believed to have been kidnapped.

Eke said the command received information from their counterparts in Ogun State that the duo have been arrested during an operation.

“The Command received information from Ogun State Police Command that the Professor’s night guard, Daniel Ita and his former driver, Bamitale had been arrested with a Toyota Rav 4 Jeep belonging to the late Prof.”

Upon their arrest, the Eke said his men swung into action and combed the compound of the late Professor, where it was discovered that the suspects had killed him and dumped his body in a store.

According to Eke: “Detectives from Ondo State Command later discovered that the night guard and the former driver strangulated the aged Professor and dumped his body in an isolated store in the compound.

“They thereafter locked the entrance gate from outside and went away with his RAV 4 Jeep, laptop, mobile phone and other valuables. The suspects confessed to have sold both the laptop and the mobile phone in Lagos,” he said.

During questioning by newsmen, both Daniel and Bamitale narrated to reporters how they carried out the assassination of Professor Ilemobade in his compound and made it look he was kidnapped.

The suspects, pointing accusing fingers at each other, confirmed that they strangulated Ilemobade, made away with his personal properties and drove away his Red Toyota SUV Jeep to Lagos where they had planned to sell their loots at cheaper rates.

“We called our oga out of the compound and lied to him that there was an outbreak in the small security guard room. He came out and we immediately strangulated him till he died.

“We later dropped his dead body inside the store, which is close to the compound’s garage and took to our heels with his vehicle which we had already planned to sell but Police caught us around Ogun state when negotiating with buyers,” they said.
