This mysterious incident reportedly occurred around 2:30 am on the 15th of December, 2019. In the reports, the deceased was identified as one Mutiu Agbosasa while the arrested security guard is one Rohis Adamu Dana. This security guard reportedly put a distress call through to the police station informing them that the life of his boss (Agbosasa) was in danger.
After this call, the police team led by the Ijede Divisional officer reportedly rushed to the scene only to meet Agbosasa’s body burnt beyond recognition right inside his own vehicle in his compound.
In the police reports, Mr. Bala Elkana – the PPRO for Lagos State said;
“The crime scene was cordoned off for forensic examination. Homicide detectives and forensic experts from the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti, Yaba, were deployed to the scene for analysis. The body of Agbososa was evacuated to the hospital for autopsy.
“The security guard who is 44 days old in the employment was arrested for questioning. In his statement, the suspect stated that on December 14, at about 10:30p.m. he opened the gate for his boss to drive into the house but while he was closing the gate, four strange men entered the house through the pedestrian gate.
According to the suspect, he heard his boss shouting that he should run and call the police. He said it did not occur to him to call neighbouring security guards for help as he made straight for the nearest police station.
“Investigation is ongoing with a view to unraveling the circumstances surrounding the death of Agbososa and identify those behind the gruesome murder. Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in the estate,”
