leadership of the Police Service Commission (PSC) to beam searchlight
into the activities of the Isheri-Oshun Divisional Police Station in
Lagos State over an alleged conspiracy with an hotelier to groom
fraudsters and cult members in the area of the State.
This call became imperative over the allegation of harbouring of
known fraudsters and cultists in the Ijegun area of the State by an
hotelier, alleging that it was uncovered another strategy being used
by fraudsters in collaboration with hotelier and police to rob the
innocent people of their belongings.
This was also discovered in an hotel called Magmorad Hotel of N0
1-3,Alabata Street, Ijegun, Lagos State and the owner of the
hotel,Oluwole Adewole (a.k.a. Araba) with phone
number:-08058828901,was the godfather of these cultists cum fraudsters
and his hotel has been used as den of these boys and girls.
CHRSJ, according to investigation, revealed that a Dubai returnee,
Mr.Olubusayo Akindejuoye with phone number:-08068628684
/08085879842,who lodged at the hotel recently, were the victim of
these boys and girls where he(Akindejuoye) was robbed of his
belongings including; Laptop, 64 G Apple iPad, Samsung Galaxy X7 and
new clothes worth of N25,000.
All the aforementioned goods belonging to Akindejuoye were theft by a
Lady in the hotel, called Miss Idowu Adewole with phone
number:-08183871998 in February this year and the matter was reported
at Isheri-Oshun Divisional Police Station where an Investigating
Police Officer (IPO), Abiodun a.k.a. Abbey with Phone
number:-08034891362, was put in-charge of the case.
But instead of IPO Abiodun to investigate the matter diligently to
arrest the perpetrator (Idowu Adewole), Abiodun just came around to
say that he could not find the lady and what made the matter worst, on
23rd of July, 2020, Akindejuoye who was Complainant at the Police
Station, sighted the lady Idowu who had earlier evaded the police
arrest in the same hotel.
Investigation further revealed that Akindejuoye did not waste time to
report back to the Police Station that he has seen the runaway lady
but to his surprise, IPO Abiodun told him to go and take the
permission from the hotelier and on getting to the owner of the hotel,
he informed him of the IPO directive and instead of Hotelier to accede
to Akindejuoye request, he gave him (Akindejuoye) a dirty slapped for
making such request from him where he got to know that he was the
one(Hotelier) using those ladies to defraud the unsuspected people.
He then went back to inform the Police at Isheri-Oshun Divisional
Police Station for third times where he discovered that the Policemen
in the Station and the owner of the hotel were working together. But
unknown to the new DPO of the Station that IPO Abiodun and other
Policemen in the Station were in the known about the evil and criminal
activities being used the said hotel to be perpetrated in the area.
The new DPO then ordered for the arrest of the two of them
(Akindejuoye and Hotelier) and they later released them on bail on
Friday 24th July, 2020 to come back Tomorrow (Monday). While the
Complainant (Akindejuoye) was released on bail for self recognition,
Hotelier was released to one surety (Foluso Lawal Ibrahim) with phone
To the surprise of the surety (Folusho), the wife of the Hotelier,
Mrs. Hannah Oluwole led their thugs, eight in numbers to come for him
by beaten him (Folusho) blue- black for doing the surety while the
police released Akindejuoye on self recognition and Folusho then
reported them back to the same Police station which they refused to
take action on those thugs till the time of filling this report.
The boys led by Mrs. Oluwole
were;Ce-Marcus,In legal,Tobi,Versac,Castrol,Tony,Asa and one other,
alleging them of being secret cult members being used by the Hotelier
and as well selling hard drugs.
Commenting on the matter at the weekend, CHRSJ’S Executive Chairman,
Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman, urged the police authority in the land
not to take this issue with levity hand by commencing immediate
investigation into the matter in order to ensure that the perpetrators
face the music of the law by arresting all those mentioned for an
indecent assault of surety (Folorunsho).
