Operatives of the Lagos Police Command have arrested one Samuel Adeniyi for allegedly killing his girlfriend with a sledgehammer.

According to the police, the suspect confessed to killing the yet to be named lady for planning to jilt him for another man.

Idowu Owohunwa, the state Commissioner of Police,on Thursday disclosed this at the Police Officers Mess, Ikeja, Lagos, where he highlighted the achievements so far recorded through Operation Flush in the last two weeks.

Owohunwa, who did not mention the area of Lagos where the incident occurred, said the suspect was overcome by emotion at the prospect of being jilted by the deceased before carrying out the crime.

“One Samuel Adeniyi got consumed by emotions and smashed the head of his girlfriend, and killed her.
“He (Adeniyi) said he suspected that the girl might leave him and, perhaps, for just that reason, he killed her and ran away.
“We have succeeded in arresting him and recovering the sledgehammer that he used and we will bring him to justice,” CP Owohunwa said.

The CP further revealed that within one month of launching Operation Flush, the police had recorded successes by raiding criminal hideouts and arresting suspected cultists and armed traffic robbers among others.

He said, “It’s exactly a month that we launched Operation Flush which was designed to reclaim the public space from criminal elements that emerged at some point to threaten the internal security order in Lagos State.

“Within the past two weeks, we recovered 18 firearms including two AK 47 rifles, one locally fabricated and one very unique gun. It is a form of weapon that has never been found in the armoury of criminals in this country, it was also recovered.

“Two locally fabricated toy guns that were used to perfect robbery were also recovered. Fifteen cartridges, four expended cartridges, six matches, 34 bags of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp, and two bags containing fake US dollars and Pounds Sterling notes were recovered as well.”

Owohunwa noted that six kegs of fake Total engine oil were also recovered in another operation saying, “This again points to the fact that there is a syndicate adulterating engine oil within Lagos. That syndicate has also been cracked.”

The CP also warned members of the public on the need to vet domestic staff before engaging them, as a case of a robber, who was engaged by a woman was also reported.

A total of eight recovered cars were paraded as well as tons of items suspected to be Indian hemp

Operation Flush is a brain child of CP Owuhunwa to address crime in the metropolis.
