Meanwhile, family members of those killed have raised the alarm over the release of one of the arrested suspects (Sesan).
The family called on the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, the Attorney General and the police commissioner, CP Frank Mba, to ensure that justice prevailed.
A witness, Yinka Baale, told newsmen, “We were in the village around 8:15pm when they came.”
“I saw a Toyota Hilux and we thought that they were policemen. But when they got to where we were sitting, I saw Sesan.
“Suddenly they started shooting. People escaped but they were able to hold on to three of us.
“They began with Kamoru and started shooting at him. When they realized that the bullets were not penetrating, they began to use axes and machetes on him.”
Baale also said “While they descended on Kamoru, Akibu made attempt to escape and he was shot in the abdomen and the neck. I also ran into the bush. They also shot at me but I escaped.”
One of the wives of the slain Kamoru, Mrs Latifat Anifowose, told journalists, “The governor and the public should not let my husband die in vain. The killers are known and they have been arrested.
“He went to work to cater for his family but now they have killed him. I leant that one of those who killed him has been released and that he has been boasting that nobody can arrest him.”
When contacted, the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba, said he will investigate and revert.
