Suspected ritualists responsible for the serial killings involving a pregnant post graduate student, two other students, a housewife and a child in Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State have been arrested by the police.
This was revealed by the state government through the Special Adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on Security, Mr Fatai Owoseni, while addressing a town hall meeting, organized by a private radio station, JAMZ 100.1 FM, in Akinyele on Wednesday.
Owoseni said that the Oyo State Police Command will soon parade the suspects; adding, “Even though there is no town where there is no sin, I can assure you as I speak that the perpetrators of the killings in Akinyele have been apprehended.
“As of Tuesday, the criminals have been apprehended and the Commissioner of a Police would possibly hold a press conference today. But I can specifically tell you that the person behind it has taken police to the ritualists and they are now behind the bars.”
He further emphasized the need for residents to be security conscious, insisting that securing the communities is everyone’s responsibility.
