The family of the deceased Guaranty Trust Bank big boy, Lekan Nosiru Oluwalose who, as alleged, lynched by a crop of people believed to be members of the Odua Peoples' Congress better known as OPC has summoned the Criminal Investigation Department, Panti for their lackadaisical attitude and discontent in handling their benefactors murder case. The petition, which was sent to the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Israel Ajao.

The one paged petition signed by the immediate younger brother of the slain 36 years olds highly religious chartered accountant with the GTB was sent to the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 2, Onikan, Lagos.The first paragraph commended the relentless effort of the AIG so far in uncovering the culprits behind the death of his brother .

“Despite the information at the disposal of the men at Panti, which were given to them by witnesses of the brutal murder of our brother, non of the culprits already identified have been taken into custody. Even, Ola, the leader of the murderers who was arrested at your instance is at present walking the streets a free man while your men at Panti are busy telling lies that he's in the hospital in hand cuffs” stated the statement.

In a swift development, the solicitors to the deceased, Hya' Osahon Ihenyen & Co., we gathered, have been making frantic efforts to make sure the killers of Oluwaslose are brought to book.

The petition that was sent to the Inspector General, Mr. Sunday Ehindero indicated the safety of land and the entire family of their clients, Alhaja Zenab and Alhaja Rashidat Oluwalose wives of the late banker and four children respectively.

However, the case took a new dimension when the lawyer of alleged killers of the deceased GTB chartered accountant claimed to have reported in the dailies that, his clients have no hands in the death of the late Nosiru.
