Officers of Oyo State Police command have arrested some ritualists and individuals suspected to be the perpatrators of the recent killings in Akinyele local government.
This was revealed by the Special Adviser on Security Affairs to Governor Seyi, Fatai Owoseni 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, urged all stakeholders and residents to remain security conscious to ensure such killings don’t occur again.
He added that residents have a part to play to ensure the security of lives and properties because the government can’t do it alone.
