The police in Ogun State have arrested a suspected ritual killer, Jimoh Olorunwa, at a cemetery in Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, with a chunk of human flesh.
The police also arrested a suspected cult member, Ahmed Oduyoye, in the same town and two suspected rapists in Oke-Ola area of Imeko.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Okoye Ikemefuna, said this while parading the suspects before journalists at the state Command Headquarters, Eleweran, on Wednesday.
Ikemefuna said that the 34-year-old suspected ritual killer was arrested at the Christians Cemetery in Ago-Iwoye following a report by Chief Adekoya, the Chairman of the Christian Committee of Ago-Iwoye.
The commissioner said, “Adekoya reported at Ago-Iwoye Division that when he visited the cemetery on routine check, he discovered that some graves had been broken and he suspected foul play.
“On receipt of the information, surveillance was mounted within the cemetery area, and this led to the arrest of one of the ritual killers at the cemetery with human flesh. The suspect confessed to the offence and mentioned one Abore of Odosinusi area of Ago-Iwoye who is presently at large.”
He added that efforts were already being made by the police to arrest the other fleeing suspects.
Ikemefuna also said Oduyoye, the 22-year-old 400 level Computer Science student of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, was arrested by police detectives after the suspected cult member and one Bobby snatched a BlackBerry phone and beat up their victim at a bar.
The police commissioner said when the house of the suspect was searched after his arrest, 146 copies of Vulture Magazine, a publication of the Eiye Confraternity displaying nude pictures of some female students were recovered.
Besides, it was learnt that a charm, a short cutlass and a torchlight were also recovered.
“The other gang members, Malo and Bobby, are at large. Efforts to arrest them are on top gear,” the CP said.
However, Oduyoye said he was forced to join the cult group only two weeks ago when some members of the group beat him up and dumped the magazines on him for safe keeping or risk being killed.
