Killers Of Ogun Ex-Permanent Secretary, Wife Arrested

The Police in Lagos State have arrested the suspects involved in the gruesome murder of a former Ogun State Permanent Secretary, Femi Egbeoluwa, and his wife, Funmi, on March 19, 2023.

The elderly couple was found dead at their residence in Ikeja area of the State. Their bodies had marks of violence which suggested that they were assassinated, and the Police began an investigation. The assailants also carted away properties and money from the home.

The identities of the suspects were revealed to be the driver of the couple, Wale Adeyemo, and his accomplice Kingsley Chibueze.

During the naira crunch, the driver approached the couple and told them he wanted to quit. He was paid off and squandered the money. Being broke, he hatched a plan to rob the couple and hired two men to carry out the operation.

According to the prime suspect, they killed the couple because he was identified while carrying out the operation. He added that the household also recognized him, so she was beaten until she became unconscious.

The State Police Spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, paraded the suspects alongside 40 others at Police Officers’ Mess, Ikeja, on Thursday. 

“You will recall that on “March 19, 2023, in Ikeja, an elderly couple was murdered in their house and the murderers stole lots of valuables, phones, and money. We were yet to ascertain the exact amounts they stole, but they are in dollars and naira. Based on our intelligence and our investigation, we have been able to arrest Wale Adeyemo and Kingsley Chibueze.

“Wale was the driver of the couple, and during the cash crunch, the driver approached the elderly couple and requested to be paid off, he said he was no longer interested in working for them.

“The elderly couple paid him off. But in less than two weeks, he had squandered the money and being an insider who knows their movements and everything about the house, he recruited Kingsley Chibueze and they stormed the couple’s house, murdered them and also attacked the housemaid. From the attack, it was obvious their intent was also to kill her, but she survived.” he said.

The Police have launched a manhunt for the third suspect, who is at large.
