Photo: Police Finally Nab Mushin Serial Killer After Five Years On The Run


Operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad,
FEDSARS, Adeniji Adele annex, have arrested a notorious gangster allegedly
responsible for killing of several innocent people in Lagos.

It was gathered that the suspect, Alayode Idris Abiola aka
Aloma reportedly wrecked havoc in the Mushin, Fadeyi and Oshodi areas , maiming
and killing several innocent people.
It was also reported that the arrested suspect was also
responsible for the death of a nine-year-old girl Aminat Lateef who was killed
in front of her house in Fadeyi while returning from an errand on December 9,
Vanguard learned that prior to the incident, Aloma and his
gang had consistently threatened and terrorised resident of Fadeyi because he
had issues with a resident identified as Toba, a member Nation Union Road
Transport Worker.
Recounting the incident that claimed the life of his little
niece, 34-year-old Wasiu Lateef, who witnessed the murder said: “We were
outside the house when she was sent on an errand, outside the compound. Less
than five minutes after she left the compound we started hearing gunshot. The
shots was so close that we had to scamper for safety but from where I was, I
saw her coming towards the house innocently, even as about seven gunmen wearing
black T-shirts were behind them shooting sporadically.
“From where I was hiding behind a bus, I beckoned to her to
come because I didn’t want her to be cut up in the crossfire before she entered
the house. Unfortunately, as she hid where I was, Aloma instructed his men to
open fire that someone was hiding beside the bus. As they opened fire one of
the bullets hit her face and chest.
“On realising that they shot a minor he ordered his boys to
move out. He said: ‘’Mopol movement let’s go. Immediately they left, I carried
her, shouting at the top of my voice, as her parents rushed out.”
According to Mr Saheed Lateef, the deceased’s father “as I
heard my brother’s voice I thought he had been hit by a stray bullet but when I
ran out I saw him carrying my daughter with her clothes soaked in blood. First
we took her to Redemption Medical centre, Fadeyi but they rejected her so we
decided to take her to Lagos University Teaching Hospital LUTH, as she was
already gasping for breath, on our way to LUTH she died at LUTH’s gate.
Mother of the deceased speaks
Narrating how she felt at that time, Jumoke Lateef, mother
of the deceased, said: at that time I was depressed, inconsolable, I actually
went to Toba house to cause trouble. I told him to leave the community, because
his continued stay in that community was bringing death to many people who were
victims to the senseless attacks.
“I miss her so much, watching her die in the pool of her own
blood for a crime she knows nothing about was heartbreaking. Aminat was our
first child; she was a primary five pupil of Ola-Emmanuel Nursery and primary
school. If Aminat Lateef was alive today she would have been 15-year-old and in
secondary school. But her promising life was snuffed out when she was only nine
by suspected hoodlums led by Aloma.
“I have not stopped praying for the long hand of the law to
catch up with those responsible for the death of my daughter, Aminat. It took
five years for the police to arrest the man who led the gang. It shows how our
system operates. If not for God who is using policemen from Federal Special
Anti-Robbery Squad, FEDSARS, Adeniji Adele annex Federal Special Anti-Robbery
Squad, FEDSARS, Adeniji Adele annex the case would have been dead and buried.
If people can kill others and get away with it, it means they have become demi
It was gathered that some members of his gang were arrested
and charged to court while Aloma went into hiding for five years before he was
arrested by Operatives of Federal SARS.
