Tayo Adeyemi, 24, who confessed to have been hired to kill a female hotel lodger in the Alakija, Satellite Town area of Lagos, was arrested by the police, after he sneaked into the hotel, White House, and demanded that his target, Rosemary, had sex with him so he would spare her life, Punch reports.
The indegene of Kwara State and a senior secondary school dropout, was arrested last Thursday. It was learnt that penultimate Wednesday, Adeyemi was brought by two gang members on a motorcycle to the hotel to kill Rosemary.
However, once Adeyemi laid his eyes on his supposed target, he reportedly fell in love with her and eventually attempted to rape her after she rebuffed his pleas to have sex with him. Rosemary, however, raised the alarm.
The hotel management subsequently called the police, and Adeyemi was arrested. The police said the suspect belonged to a three-man gang, adding that a manhunt had been launched for the fleeing two gang members.
