Middle-aged man arrested for extortion, assassination attempt

A middle-aged man was at the weekend arrested by men of the Ondo State Police Command for claiming to be an assassin with purported 500 assassinations to his credit.

The suspect, identified as Adesina Adetokunbo, was captured following reports of threats made against pure water factory owners in the state.

Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, Abayomi Oladipupo, revealed that Adetokunbo had called the unsuspecting on the phone that three of her employees had commissioned him to end her life, insisting that she must pay him to spare her life.

“On April 18, 2024, at approximately 7:00 m, a report was filed with the police regarding threats to the life of an individual and extortion.

“The complainant recounted receiving a disturbing call from an unfamiliar number, where the caller identified himself as an assassin.

“The caller affirmed that he had killed over 500 people and that three of her staff had paid him to assassinate her. He demanded that a certain amount be paid to an account or the complainant would be executed.

Out of fear, the victim sent the sum of ₦110,000 to the account forwarded to her. Through Technical assistance, one Adetokunbo Adesina was arrested. The suspect claimed he was sick and needed money to carry out a surgical operation.

“He decided to use the threat as a means to extort the victim because she refused to employ him in her pure water factory.”
