After burying the victim, Oyeyemi said they took his motorcycle to Ijebu-Igbo where they sold it for N120,000.
He explained that luck ran against the duo when they were about to share the money as they could not agree on certain amount for individual.
“The disagreement led to a serious altercation between them and some of their pronouncements arouse the suspicion of people around and they informed the police.
