Adeola Williams (aka Ade Lawyer) on Friday in Lagos State narrated how he killed four (4) persons for Alhaji Rafiu Olorunwa, the Ex-Chairman of the Lagos State branch of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).
Ade Lawyer stated this when he was paraded by the police in the state.
According to him, he had killed many people for prominent people in the state which the ex-NURTW chairman was one of his client, adding that he had been working for him since he was NURTW boss between 2008 – 2011.
“He is my boss. I have been working for him since he was the state chairman of the union,” Ade Lawyer said.
Ade Lawyer confessed that Alhaji Olorunwa contracted him to kill Mr. Kunle Polly, the Idumota branch chairman of the NURTW union, because Polly allegedly denied him his dues as NURTW boss in the state.
Ade Lawyer was paraded at the Lagos State Police Command alongside the ex-NURTW boss.
According to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, Ade Lawyer who was declared wanted few weeks ago over the attempted murder of Kunle Polly, was apprehended in Akure, Ondo State.
On the apparent instruction of the NURTW boss, Ade Lawyer on 23 January, 2018, attacked the Idumota branch chairman of the union, where his personal assistant Ganiu Ayinla was killed.
They were both arrested following collective efforts of the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad, the Inspector General of Police Intelligence Response Team and other units from the Lagos State Police Command.
Olorunwa was eventually arrested following the confession of Ade Lawyer.
“Adeola Williams, AKA Ade Lawyer, confessed that his services were secured by a former chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers in the state, Alhaji Rafiu Olorunwa,” the police commisioner said.
Adding that Olorunwa had “promised to pay N1.5 million for the murder of Kunle Polly and had given the suspect N500,000 with a promise to pay the balance after the job might have been completed.
Trouble however stated when the assassin tried to collect the balance of N1milion but was refused by Olorunwa, who noted that his target wasn’t killed.
“Ade lawyer, in anger, seized one of Olorunwa’s vehicles, a Hyundai Santa Fe Sports Utility Vehicle, with Registration No EKY741DL, in lieu of the N1 million balance,” Edgal said.
Ade Lawyer who was asked the kind of jobs he does for the former NURTW boss simply said, “I was killing people for him.”
“We killed two people for him during a clash between him and the people who were fighting with him during his time as the state chairman. He said that he was the one that brought Kunle Polly into the NURTW and that Polly had stopped people from paying him his entitlements as the former union leader,” he said
“He (Olorunwa) came to me on the Monday before the Wednesday that we carried out the operation. He gave me N500, 000 with a promise that he would pay me the balance of N1 million after the operation. He also warned me not to divulge the information about the operation to anybody.”
“After we could not get Polly, he refused to pick my calls and when I eventually got him with my private number, he said that he did not want to talk to anybody as a result of the failed operation.
“I asked him to behave like a man and asked him about my balance but he insisted that he would not pay it since we could not kill Kunle Polly. That was why I collected his vehicle, a Jeep . He promised to balance my money and collect his vehicle,” Ade Lawyer said
The former NURTW boss who also spoke to newsmen admitted that he gave N350,000 to Ade Lawyer, but that the money was not for the alleged operation to kill Kunle Polly.
“I was arrested because I was alleged to have sponsored someone who wanted to kill a member of our union. I don t have any connection with him. I knew him as a member of our union through one of my boys. It was after I left office that that boy introduced him to me as one of our supporters. I have only seen him twice in my life,” Olorunwa said as he wept profusely while speaking.
“The first time I met him was in Ede during the burial of Senator Isiaka Adeleke. He called me that he was coming to Ede but on his way coming, he had an accident,” he said.
According to Olorunwa, Ade Lawyer is a very notorious and deadly criminal who threatened to kill his family if he did not give him the money he had begged him.
