Oyerinde: 12 suspects languish in prison


No fewer than 12 persons suspected to be involved in the killing, last May, of Mr. Olaitan Oyerinde, principal private secretary to Edo State governor are still being detained without trial in various prisons in Edo State, Daily Sun investigations have revealed. A disagreement between the police and the Federal Ministry of Justice, on the one hand, and the State Security Service (SSS) and the Edo State Ministry of Justice, on the other it was gathered might have stalled the trial of the suspects.

Informed sources told Daily Sun that the 12 suspects might remain in detention and not face trial for as long as the bickering in the camps of the police, SSS, Federal Ministry of Justice and Edo State Government last. Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole and Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Bello Adoke (SAN) had a few weeks ago engaged selves in a shouting march over handling of the suspects.

In a letter dated January 21, 2013, the office of the Federal Director of Public Prosecution (FDPP) said there was sufficient evidence to prosecute Danjuma Musa, Muritala Usman, Auta Umaru Ali and Moses Asamah Okoro alias Moses Auchi” with the offences of conspiracy, armed robbery, and unlawful possession of firearms punishable with death under section 6(b) of the Robbery and Firearms Act 2004.” In the letter with reference number DPP/ADV: 128/12, addressed to the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, the FDPP advised that Mohammed Baba Yelwa, Idris Abdulhamid, Abubakar Lawal, Abubakar Raji, Hassan Babate Aliyu and Garuba Usman Maisamari be charged with the offence of receiving stolen property punishable under Section 5 of the Robbery and Firearms (Special Provision) Act, 2004. He also advised that Wilfred Iserhienrhein and Umaru Adamu alias Duna” be charged with the offence of unlawful possession of firearms punishable under Section 3 (1) of the Robbery and Firearms Special Provision Act, 2004.”

The Federal DPP charged the police to further investigate claims by Garba Usman Maisamari that they were sponsored to kill Olaitan Oyerinde, stressing that the only evidence linking the accused to the offence” was the confessional statement of Garba Usman Maisamari, which was not corroborated.” Daily Sun gathered that some of the suspects, particularly Muritala Usman and Danjuma Musa had been in detention since May 24, 2012.

Alongside eight others, they were first arraigned on August 31, 2012, before a Magistrate Court in Oredo, Benin City, on an eight-count charge, which included armed robbery, conspiracy and illegal possession of firearms. In the letter, which was signed on behalf of the AGF by one Mrs. Elizabeth Alabi, the federal DPP asked the IG to forward the original case file “to enable us initiate prosecution of the suspects.”

    All I know is whether they are prosecuted or not, “there is no peace for the wicked, as much as “there is no perfect murder”. Every killer or murderer must be rewarded with eternal punishment.
