Adeola Williams, also known as Ade Lawyer, arrested for the assassination of Ganiyu Ayinla, aka Pinero, has said that he lied against Akanni Olohunwa, a former Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, who he had accused of contracting him to kill Pinero.
The self-confessed serial assassin told newsmen that he framed olohunwa for neglecting him after he was elected as the union's chairman.
“I decided to rope in Olorunwa because he was the one who ruined my life. It was my support for him during his fight with MC Oluomo that made me to lose my position at the union. After he was removed from office, he had so much money but he was wasting it on women and movie actors and he refused to help me.
“If he had given me good money after he left office, for staking my life for him, I won’t have been roaming about looking for who to kill. I was just so bitter, so I framed him. I made up the story that he paid me N500,000 to kill Kunle Poly and I also lied that I seized his vehicle because he was owing me a balance of N1m,” he said.
Ade Lawyer also confessed that he had lied about working for MC Oluomo as well as Prince Kazeem Eletu, both well-known in the union. He claimed he had attempted to frame the former for failing to come to his aid when he was arrested. He also stated that he does not even know Eletu and had never met him before but had heard enough about him to frame him. He however said he had become ''born again'' and would always say the truth.
Giving details about his over 20 years experience in crime, Ade Lawyer recalled how he had snatched a watch from popular fuji musician, Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, in 1998. He said he had been rrested after some eyewitnesses led the police to his residence. He claimed to have regained freedom in 2001 and went back to being a commercial bus driver and conductor in the Ajah area of Lagos. He siad he had joined the union and was drafted as an attendant at the park.
Ade Lawyer said he decided to kill Azeez Adekunle Lawal, also known as Kunle Poly, for refusing to talk to the state chairman of the union, Tajudeen Agbede, on his behalf. He said he worked hard for Agbede to emerge as the chairman but that he was dumped after the election.
“I thought about my predicament because my wife was heavily pregnant and the money I was getting from Oluomo wasn’t enough and I wasn’t ready to use my gun for armed robbery, so I decided to end the life of the man who refused to help me mend my relationship with Agbede.”
