Members of a robbery gang who were recently arrested for the murder of an Oyo State member of parliament, Gideon Aremu, have revealed why they committed the crime.

Aremu was shot dead in front of his residence during a robbery operation by four men who were bothered that the law maker  recognized them.

This was in response to rumours concerning if the murder was an assasination.

Giving a confession, Adedeji, who is the prime suspect in the murder case said his group had no premeditated intention of killing the deceased.

He said, “We left a popular drinking joint at Beere, where we smoked Indian Hemp to our satisfaction. We did not have the lawmaker in mind when we took off from Beere."

"It was when we were looking for whom to rob that we saw him in his car. We stopped him as he was about entering his premises and robbed him of his phone and money."

“Then Abbey just pointed the gun at him and shot him many times. I didn’t know why he killed him. Later I discovered that Abbey lives at Adegbayi too. His mother has a house there."

“Abbey said he knew the lawmaker. It was Abbey that brought the deal to us."

“We were going somewhere before we had a change of mind. I was there when Abbey shot him."

“He told us that the victim was killed because they thought he identified them due to a torchlight he shone on them."

“We had only one gun. Although I was the one that collected the items, I did not know how much money we took from him. I was given only N40, 000."

Leye Oyebade, the Oyo State Commissioner of Police mentioned that the suspects were arrested through the hard work and diligence of the force.

He gave assurances that justice will be served, as the suspects will be made to face the consequences of their action.
