Lagos socialite, Ade Victor Adelakun popularly known as Ade Lexus escaped death in the hands of assassins who had been paid N140, 000.00 to kill him by a GRA, Ibadan, Oyo State-based businessman.
According to a Police Bulletine, the assassins namely Ibrahim Lawal, 27; Yomi Olanrewaju, 25; and Emmanuel Adewale, 25; were arrested by men of the Special Anti-Roberry Squard (SARS), while plotting to attack the socialite.
The arrest was made possible after a tip off by a Police informant who heard the assassins planning their strategy in Pekas Night Club, Allen Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos and reached out to the officer in charge of SARS, Abba Kyari who deployed two teams to the club.
At about 1am three of the suspects were arrested while their driver simply identified as Samuel escaped in a Sedan Wagon. A search of the arrested trio revealed N100, 000.00, the picture of their target and guns with which they hoped to carry out their operation.
Reacting to the information when he was contacted by the police, Adelakun said he was dumbfounded and was yet to fathom why the man wanted him dead. Further he said, the primary suspect who is now at large is neither his business partner or friend.
In his word, Adelakun said “a friend of mine in the United Kingdom was the one that introduced us and I have met with him only on a few occasions. If he had succeeded with the assassination, no one would have suspected him because he does not stay in Lagos, neither do we chat that often”, he said.
Adelakun added that ” he told me to lend him money a while ago for a business project and I turned him down, maybe that is why he got angry.”
On the fact that the arrested suspects said their sponsor alleged that Adelakun stole his wife, the socialite answers thus” that is not true, I am a happily married man with beautiful children, he concluded.
