4 parraded for robbing, killing man in Ibadan

The Oyo State Police Command has paraded four suspects involved in the killing of an Anambra indigene during a robbery at Idi-Osan, Oba-Ido community, Ologuneru area of Ibadan.

The Commissioner of Police, Adebowale Williams, said the suspects: The suspects are Oyebamiji Moses, Afeez Akinpelu, Segun Joseph and Dauda Adekunle, who confessed to being among the criminals terrorising the state.

 According to him, the robbers stormed the community with sophisticated firearms, cutlasses and other burglarious instruments and attacked members of the community, dispossessed them of huge sums of money, cell phones and other valuable items.

Williams further said, “As if that was not enough, the armed robbers opened fire on some of their victims after they had dispossessed them of their hard-earned valuable items and in the process, a member of the community who was later identified as Felix Nwaebili was killed in cold blood.

“As soon as the incident was reported at the monitoring unit, Eleyele, a team of operatives launched a discreet investigation into the incident and on July 4, at about 0200hrs two kingpins of the criminal syndicate were arrested in their respective hideouts within Ibadan metropolis.

“Upon interrogation, the suspects made confessional statements to the crime and series of similar criminal activities they had masterminded in different parts of Ibadan. The confessional statements and further discreet investigation later led to the arrest of the syndicate’s armourer and one locally made gun and a dagger were recovered. Effort is now being intensified to hunt down other members of the gang and recover the guns used for their operations.”
