A suspected land grabber, Mukaila Salau also known as Actor has been fingered in the Easter day gruesome murder of Kazeem Idowu Keshinro, a staffer of Ikosi-Ejirin local government for reasons yet unknown in an incident that happened on Monday, 1st of April, 2024.

Kazeem Idowu, who was also described as a hunter, had in a chilling video where he could be seen soaked in his pool of blood and his body riddled with bullets, recounted how he went on hunting activities in the Ota area of Ikorodu, Lagos State when he was suddenly ambushed, attacked, shot severally and matcheted on the orders of one Mukaila Salau aka Actor, a suspected violent land grabber who was physically present at the scene.

The victim sadly gave us the ghost after a few days due to severity of the dastard attack.

According to the visibly distraught elder brother of the victim, Abdulhakeem Keshinro, there has never been any interaction between his younger brother and Salau but he was shocked to hear of the attack.

In May 2020, Mukaila, a.k.a “Actor”, was reportedly arrested and paraded by Police operatives from the Tactical Unit of Zone 2 Command, Onikan, Lagos.

According to the then Zonal Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Hauwa Idris-Adamu, the then Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone 2, AIG Ahmed lliyasu, due to the rise in nefarious cult activities in the Ikorodu axis of Lagos State, had ordered operatives to arrest cult leaders and members terrorizing members of the public.

This led to the arrest of Mukaila, and the recovery of pump action gun, charms and other dangerous weapon.

According to a statement, ““The AIG then ordered for the arrest of the cult leaders. This led to the gathering of information about a suspected cult leader, Mukaila, who had been accused of terrorizing some communities like Maya, Itele, Igode and Adamo areas of Ikorodu, Lagos.

“The AIG dispatched a team of operatives attached to Zonal Monitoring Unit with intelligence to the area affected; they stormed the house and hideout of the said Mukaila and arrested him.”

“Some of the items recovered from him are one pump action gun, fifty-five live cartridges, one locally made axe and assorted charms while one of his boys was arrested.

The AIG said the suspects will be charged to Court upon completion of investigation but Mukaila surprising struck again.

While describing the manner of the attack, he disclosed that his younger brother was butchered on his head and shot several times before he gave up the ghost some days later. He, however, also confirmed that the victim had listed those responsible for the attack led by Salau aka Actor in a video made available to this medium.

He added: ‘’My brother and Mukaila Salau aka Actor have nothing in common. They are in Ota, we are in Agbowa. But when I heard of the incident, I went to see my brother and he revealed that Mukaila Salau was the one behind it. He said he went to the farm and when he got there, they shot and butchered him on his head in three places.’’

‘’The issue happened in Ota-Ikosi on Easter Monday. I know Actor to be a land grabber and there is nothing between them, my brother who is a hunter only went to hunt. He works for Ikosi Ejirin local government and he had an ID card on him when he was attacked.’’

Meanwhile, following the attack, a petition was written to the Nigeria police force to officially report the incident.

The petition sighted by this news medium partly read: ‘’On the 1st of April, 2024 our Client was on his way back from the farm from checking his traps at Ota Ikosi, via Agbowa, Lagos State when he was waylaid and accosted by some cultists, bandits and terrorists led by (1) MUKAILA OLALEKAN SALAU (A.K.AACTOR)(2) AHMED (A.K.A.
