Police in Oyo may have arrested some of the suspects behind the recent serial ritual killings in Akinyele community in Ibadan, the state capital.
Special Adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on Security, Mr Fatai Owoseni, gave this hint during a town hall meeting organised by a radio station, JAMZ 100.1 FM, Ibadan.
Owoseni said that the suspected serial killers would soon be paraded by the Oyo State Police Command.
He said, “I can assure you, as I speak, that the perpetrators of the killings in Akinyele have been apprehended.
“As of Tuesday, the criminals were apprehended and the Commissioner of 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 urged the people to be security conscious, adding that residents have roles to play in securing communities.
Recall that a 29-year old expectant mother, two undergraduates, and a young boy were killed by unknown assailants in their homes in the Akinyele area of Ibadan, recently.
