A Magistrate Court II sitting in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, has remanded the alleged killers of Mr and Mrs Kehinde Fatinoye and their son, Oreoluwa, in 2022.
The PUNCH reported that Lekan Adekanbi, the prime suspect in the gruesome killing of a couple had confessed that he and his gang members — Ahmed Odetola and Waheed Adeniyi — slaughtered the family after forcing them to transfer N1,102,000.
Adekanbi, the driver to the wife of the late Kehinde, said he organised his fellow cultists to rob the family because they refused to grant his request for a loan.

The court also ruled that the buyers of the slain couple’s car, Owolaja Anuoluwapo and Usman Azeez, be also remanded at the Oba prison for the same period of 60 days
