MEN of the Kogi State Police Command have arrested a yet-to-be-identified man for allegedly killing his friend, Kehinde Ajayi, and burying his corpse at his house around Felele, in the Lokoja area of the state.
Our correspondent gathered that the middle-aged suspect allegedly killed Ajayi on Sunday, July 24, 2022, and secretly buried his corpse at his residence.
A source, who spoke to our correspondent, said the victim bought a Toyota Sienna vehicle with number plate LSD 228 HJ, and the suspect reportedly lured him to a location in the community to celebrate the achievement.
The source said after Ajayi, alongside the suspect and some other persons, left for the location, the victim was never seen again.
Ajayi’s family, while lamenting over his whereabouts, were said to have reported a case of a missing person at the nearest police station.
However, investigation into Ajayi’s disappearance in the community reportedly led to the arrest of one of his friends who gave useful information as to what happened to him.
The source revealed that after the suspect allegedly killed Ajayi, he went away with his car, adding that on Monday, he took policemen to his house, and showed them the location where he buried Ajayi’s corpse.
However, some youth who were angered by the development, started vandalising the suspect’s house after the police exhumed Ajayi’s corpse.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP William Ayah, confirmed the incident.
He said, “The body of late Ajayi has been recovered and investigation is still on to arrest others who might have been involved in his killing.”
