Family believes Nigerian murder provoked by robbery

When police discovered a badly stabbed body off a feeder road at mile three on the Western Highway on Friday, they had no clue who it was. By Monday night police identified the victim as forty-year old Nigerian Security Guard, Abayomi Olatunji. While police have no leads on this murder, his family in Nigeria believes that the motive was robbery. In an email to News Five, Abidemi Anthony, who identified himself as Olatunji’s older brother, says that the family, in Lagos, Nigeria has information that Olatunji wanted to buy a car and that he was about to complete the deal. Anthony says that his brother was last seen at the bank when he took the dealers to make payment. The brother went on to say that Olatunji’s home on Chancellor Drive, has a CCTV Camera and they believe that images captured must be able to show who his last visitors were. Anthony concluded by saying that the family in Nigeria is devastated by the untimely and gruesome murder of one of their own. Olatunji, it is reported, has only been in Belize for five months and was employed as a Security Guard at J& B Security Firm. We’re not too sure how his family far away in Nigeria has this informaiotn, but in Belize no one has been arrested for Olatunji’s murder.

    Wouldn’t it be smart to look at all the relevant video, including the bank where he allegedly took out cash? Even I might be able to solve this murder this way.

    And if I were sentencing the murderers, they would swing at the end of a rope, where all murderers should end up.
