Nurudeen Kazeem, who was last week arrested by the operatives of RRS of the Lagos State Police Command over the shooting of a police officer in LASU – Igando area, has confessed that he honed his shooting skills as a cultist.
Nurudeen popularly known as “Onyabo”, 27, a trained tailor turned okada rider, had shot the officer in the leg while trying to dispossess a delivery man of some expensive phones one of the gang members had ordered online for delivery at a specific address around LASU – Iba Road.
Onyabo, while confessing to the police stated that he shot the officer twice in the leg to avoid arrest. He added that he was trained to kill by cult members after his initiation into Eiye Confraternity.
“I have killed two people in the past. One was to complement my initiation into Eiye Confraternity. I was led to a beer parlour in LASU – Iyana Iba axis, where I was showed a man to kill. I shot the guy there and I escaped." I was invited into robbery by Cali (Wilfred Ehis). He invited me to assist him in collecting phones from delivery men. He ordered the phone online, give them the delivery address and we ambush the delivery men and collect the phones at gun point.” Wilfred Ehis, 30, was rearrested by the operatives after the arrest of Nurudeen. According to investigations, he had been the brain behind several robberies in LASU – Iyana – Iba and Igando. Ehis, from whom a short gun was also recovered sometimes in April, 2017 in company of three other accomplices had confessed to the police that he hired Nurudeen Kazeem to help him rob delivery men of online shopped phones. According to Nurudeen, “I have done this three times for Cali. The first operation, he gave me N60,000. The second, he gave me N50,000 and the third, N45,000. The fourth one was the one I shot the police officer."
