6 Family Members Murdered By Suspected Assassins
Sheik Yusuf Tanimola and his family went to bed Monday night not knowing that was the last time they would see daylight.
The family must have been enjoying their sleep when suddenly some uninvited guests broke into their residence.
The 30-year-old Yusuf probably woke up, frightened at the sight of the intruders.
He would have asked what their mission was, but the response he got may have sent cold shivers down his spine.
By this time, some of the other family members must have woken up, terrified at the sight of the intruders.
What transpired between Yusuf and his killers is what the police are trying to unravel as residents of Atiba area of Odogbolu, Ogun State woke Tuesday morning to meet Yusuf and his family in a pool of their blood.
Many of them claim that they did not hear any strange sound and did not suspect any foul play until they saw the corpses of the family members.
Among Yusuf’s four children were twins who were two years old.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the command had deployed men in the community in a bid to unravel those behind the killing.
He said, “The Commissioner of Police has deployed men of the homicide section, the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad and Anti-kidnpping unit in the community.
“We are already profiling the identities of the killers; we will get them.”
