The Nigerian police have arrested some suspected ritualists over the serial killings in Akinyele area of Ibadan.
Special Adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on Security, Mr Fatai Owoseni, had disclosed this while addressing a town hall meeting in Akinyele on Wednesday which was organized by JAMZ 100.1 FM.
According to Owoseni, the suspects would be paraded by the Oyo State Police Command. He said:
“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 yesterday, 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 emphasized the need for residents to be security alert as everyone has a role to play when it involves securing communities.
In the last two months, five people had been hacked to death in strange situations in the community. They included a 29-year old expectant mother, two undergraduates and a child.
