Oyo State Police Command has arrested some ritualists and individuals suspected to be behind the recent killings in Akinyele Local Government in Ibadan.
The Special Adviser on Security Affairs to Governor Seyi Makinde, Fatai Owoseni revealed this at the ongoing Town Hall session for Stakeholders on how to tackle insecurity in Akinyele organised by JAMZ 100.1 FM.
“Even though there is no town where there is no sin but 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 Police would possibly hold a press conference today but I can specifically tell you that the person behind it has taken the police to the ritualists and they are now behind the bars.”
Owoseni, a former Commissioner of Police, however, stated that residents have a responsibility too by being vigilant and security conscious to ensure such killings do not occur again.
