On the 4th May, 2012, the Principal Private Secretary to the Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, Olaitan Oyerinde was killed by unknown gunmen at his residence, No. 65,2nd Ugbo Road, GRA Benin City.

On Wednesday, the State Security Service, SSS,  paraded suspected six armed robbery gang which allegedly killed Olaitan Oyerinde, the Principal Private Secretary to Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State.
The suspects' names were given as Raymond Onajite Origbo, Mohammed Ibrahim Abdulahi,  Saidu Yakubu, Chikezie Edeh,Hassan Bashiru, and  Sani Abdullahi Abubakar

It was learn that  "careless statements made by Ali Ihade, the security guard of  Comrade Oyerinde, at various times about his master’s position in government, attracted the attention of the prime suspect, Mohammed Ibrahim Abdullahi, who consequently hatched a robbery operation’’. Marilyn Ogar, the Deputy Director, Public Relations of SSS said while parading the suspects  at Abuja yesterday.

 The ringleader of the gang,Abdullahi, had instructed others to tie up the security  guard, Ihade so that he would not see his face. 
Rev. David Ogolor
 The SSS spokesperson said said the suspects confessed to have shot and killed Oyerinde because when he (Oyerinde) ran into his bedroom and attempted to go underneath his bed, they believed he was trying to reach out for a gun.

The suspects who were who admitted the crime spoketo reporters, openly confessed to have killed the late Olaitan Oyerinde, but said their action was in self defence, as he made his way to the bedroom after release of a shot to intimidate him.
They said they were armed robbers and had gone to the late Oyerinde’s residence purely on a robbery mission.
A twist to the story is an information which reached us earlier was that one  Rev. David Ugolor, a known activist, was also arrested in connection with the killing of Olaiton. It  was reported that one of the suspects told police interrogators that he was offered N20m for the job which he had received advance of N200,000.
Rev Ogolor was arrested after the suspect named one “David” as the sponsor of the murder.
Police sources said the suspect identified Rev. Ugolor during an identification parade as the “David” that sponsored the killing.

 Rev. Ugolor who appears to be a friend of  the late Olaiton's family was said to have had a drink with Olaiton the night  he was shot. He was also the first person that Olaitan’s wife called to take him to the hospital after he was shot.

However, Rev. Ugolor is claiming that he is being framed up for the murder of Olaitan.
More also,  the paraded robbers at SSS Headquarters,  Abuja yesterday, did to mention Rev Ogolor as their member or sponsor.
