Prior the incident, he made it known that on the 3rd of April, 2022, he stole a sewing machine that belonged to his uncle’s wife and sold it to his friend, Rasheed for N4,000. When his mother came back from church and noticed that the machine was no longer there, he started shouting his name and due to this, he ran away from home and went to Rasheed’s house.

At Rasheed’s apartment, they both concluded that they should start stealing sewing machines and sell them as scrap so that they will have enough money and it was during the discussion that he remembered that Adefisayo Tosin, who happens to be a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University, had two sewing machines she do use, as it was also made known that the deceased was living next to the apartment that was rented by Ikenna’s mother.

However, the duo discussed about Tosin and decided to rob her of her two sewing machines in the night.

The Operation…

At around 1am in the middle of the night, they broke the ceiling of Tosin’s apartment and gained entry into her room and when they entered, they met sleeping without clothes. Due to this, Ikenna started touching her and when she woke up, she was shocked, as he immediately held her hands and her throat, while Rasheed started sleeping with her.

When Rasheed finished, Ikenna did his own but due to the fact that she saw their faces and was able to recognize them, they strangled her to death so that she won’t implicate them.

However, they were still ransacking the deceased’s room till around 6am in the morning when the deceased’s mother came to check on her but when she knocked severally and heard no response, she went to Ikenna mother’s room and asked if she had seen her daughter that morning but, she said no.

Out of curiosity, Ikenna’s mother followed Tosin’s mother to the deceased’s apartment and it was while they were knocking that Ikenna’s mother noticed a hole through which the two suspects broke into the the deceased’s room, as the two women immediately raised an alarm.

Coincidentally, some vigilante members were passing that time, as concerned neighbours called them to come over.
