Lagos State  –    The Lagos State Police Command have arrested three suspects over the assassination of Hector Oluwaseun Jobarteh, winner of the 2006 Gulder Ultimate Search, GUS, reality TV, Season 3,  last Sunday.

Hector Jobarteh who just returned to Nigeria in July, after his wife moved to New Jersey to have their second baby, was shot dead by unknown gunmen at his residence in New Oko-Oba, area of Lagos State.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, yesterday, said three people have been arrested and are currently being interrogated over the assassination of Jobarteh, who was reportedly trailed to his house and shot dead.
Edgal said:

“Some yet-to-be identified hoodlums, pretending to be friends of the deceased, gained access into the apartment of Hector Jobarteh, 38, in the presence of his brother, one Victor Joberteh, at 8, Olufowora Close, New Oke-Oba.

“They shot the said Hector on the chest without any dialogue and fled from the scene. “The Divisional Police Officer and a team of policemen quickly rushed to the scene after a distress call and the victim was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died. “Nothing was removed from his house.

The corpse was taken to Orile/Agege Hospital morgue for autopsy. Enquiries carried out from neighbours revealed that the deceased may have been a victim of business transaction that went sour. “To us, this is a clear case of murder and all angles are being investigated.

I want to use this opportunity to assure the family and indeed, Lagosians that the police will use every asset at its disposal to ensure that perpetrators of this heinous act are not only brought to book, but diligently prosecuted.”

It was gathered that the gunmen knocked on his neighbour’s door downstairs and asked who the car parked outside belonged to. When she told them the occupant stays upstairs, they stormed his apartment and shot him. Hector had just returned from picking his brother from the airport.
