How Man Disguised As Passenger, Slit Commercial Motorcyclist

A man named Sodade Sesan tried to kill a commercial motorcyclist in an attempt to steal his motorcycle.

Sodade, a 40-year-old man was said to have slit the neck of the Okada rider and thrown him by the roadside, making away with his motorcycle.

The Commandant of the Amotekun Corps in Ogun State, David Akinremi, confirming the incident revealed that the incident happened at 10 am on April 4, 2023. 

According to him, the motorcyclist, Mohammed Bashiru, was stopped by the suspect around Anglican Church, Ode-Remo, Remo North local government area of Ogun State, while riding his N450,000-worth Bajaj Boxer motorcycle, registered as SGM 220 WA.

The bike rider, who was in search of passengers, was stopped by Sesan, who pretended to be one.

Akinremi disclosed that the duo had an agreement of N800 to convey Sesan to and from Iperu.

He said the suspect discovered at Iperu that his initial destination was not suitable to carry out his evil intention.

So, he asked the complainant to proceed to the Abuja Bar area in Ilisan Remo.

“At this location, the suspect saw that the area was lonely and suddenly brought out a sharp knife from his pocket while on motion, he slit the right side of the victim’s neck, pushed him off and snatched the motorcycle to an unknown destination,” the Amotekun boss said.

"The victim cheated death as he was later taken to the Ogere Medical Centre, where he was treated and discharged."

Akinremi informed that the suspect removed the number plate of the motorcycle and dumped same in a latrine in his residence.

He was said to have taken the stolen motorcycle to a burial ground at Kehinde Avenue, Isara-Remo.

“Painstaking intelligence by Amotekun operatives led to Sesan’s arrest and the recovery of the missing bike at a time he was searching for prospective buyers.

“He confessed to the commission of the crime on interrogation."

Akinremi stated while appreciating Ogun people for their willingness to avail operatives of the Amotekun Corps with credible information.
