Hamburger’s wife reveals:I know my husband’s killers

Wife of murdered Chairman of Tricycle Riders Association, Shogunle branch, Oshodi, Lagos State, Mr. Razak Bello aka Hamburger, has called on the policemen investigating the case to ensure justice. She claims she knows the killers of her husband and they have confessed.
According to the woman, Alhaja Abolore Bello, two men, who were behind her husband’s murder, have been arrested and are presently in the custody of police.
The alleged killers were said to have surrendered themselves to the police. It was learnt that the supposed killers all grew up together with Hamburger.
Abolore explained that she and her daughter became uneasy when their attempts to see the killers were thwarted.
The widow said that she didn’t understand why Investigating Police Officers at the State Criminal Investigations Department (SCID), Homicide Section, were shielding the killers from them.
The wife of NURTW chieftain killed in Shogunle on May 29 returned to Nigeria with her eldest daughter, for the burial of her husband and had since been going to Panti to know the outcome of police investigation.Abolore explained that she and her daughter, frustrated, stopped going to Panti and returned to Dublin after she got fed up with the bureaucracy.
She said: “My husband was killed on the 29th by a gang led by one Samson and his boys. According to eyewitnesses, they killed my husband and ran away. But later, Samson and Tunde handed themselves over to policemen at Panti. Community and family members have sent a petition to different offices.
“The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fatai Owoseni and some other top officials were at our residence to pay us condolence visits. They all promised us justice. Now that two of the culprits are in police custody, my family and I demand justice.
“I was at Panti to meet with policemen in charge of the investigation, they are Popoola Fatai and Olaniyan Razak; they both confirmed that the two suspects were in their custody. I’m pleading with the Lagos CP, to ensure justice is done as he had earlier promised.
“All I want is justice. We’re talking about a family man with kids and aged mother. He was the breadwinner of our family and his life was snuffed out just like that. I want Nigerians to be aware of what is going on. I believe that nobody should be above the law. I was also with the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) Commander, Disu Tunji, he also promised us justice.”
Although it was earlier alleged that the two killers handed themselves over to Disu, the commander denied this when contacted.
He said: “We heard that one Golden and another man were behind Bello’s murder. I heard that they went to SCID to hand themselves over to the police. I didn’t see them. I never saw them. Before they went to hand themselves over to the police, I had been tracking them. I wanted to arrest and charge them to court. I wasn’t able to lay my hands on them.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said: “I can only tell you that some people have been arrested in connection with Hamburger’s murder and they would soon be charged to court.”
