Operatives of the Ogun State Police Command have arrested seven suspected ritual killers in different parts of the Abeokuta metropolis.
The suspects are Lekan Oladipupo (38), Sulaiman Aremu (30), Ifayemi Madru (24), Shittu Saheed (38), Samod Sulaiman (35 ), Akanji Moruf (23) and Tajudeen Adekunle (36 years).
They were arrested following a report lodged at Bode Olude divisional headquarters by one Abraham Okosun.
The complainant told the police that he had visited his brother, one Sunday Okosun, at Agbara village via Mawuko Abeokuta, only to discover that the brother had been brutally murdered with his remains dismembered.
The Police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told newsmen in Abeokuta that following the report, the DPO Bode Olude division, DSP Durojaye Rotimi, led his team of detectives to the scene.
According to him, the team while acting on credible information, traced and apprehended Lekan Oladipupo, who on interrogation confessed to being the actual person who shot and killed the deceased with his Dane gun.
Oyeyemi said his confession led to the arrest of the other six suspects.
He said during separate interrogation, each of the suspects “narrated their respective roles in the gruesome murder of the deceased and others who have been killed in similar circumstances.” (DailyTrust)
