A politician, Chief Sunday Adeyemo (aka Sunday Igboho) has denied having any relationship with suspected assassin, Adeola Williams, popularly known as Ade Lawyer, who was recently arrested alongside former National Union Road of Transport Workers (NURTW) chairman, Alhaji Rafiu Akanni Olohunwa, in connection with the murder of Ganiyu Ayinla, personal assistant to the NURTW chairman in Lagos Island, Azeez Lawal.
Igboho, in a press statement made available to journalists yesterday, said he had no relationship with Ade Lawyer until a land dispute saga ensued between some area boys and his friend, Prince Kazeem Eletu-Odibo, over the latter’s family land in Lagos.

He said when the police were searching for the killers of Ayinla, he assisted them in arresting one of the suspects, John Ibafo. According to him, he tricked Ibafo when he discovered that after they carried out the crime, they ran to Ibadan where he lives.

Igboho, who noted that he was part of the Police Search Team that carried out the arrest, said his move greatly angered the alleged killer, so much that he kept threatening him on the phone with text messages.

“He threatened me that if he was caught, he would implicate me. I ignored his threats and assisted the police in their investigations, which led to his arrest,” he said.
