The Ogun state police command have arrested four members of a syndicate that specialize in robbing and killing POS and Uber operators in the state 

The suspects, Kehinde Saliu Jelili aka Oluomo, Abiodun Akinola, Johnson Fakeye, and Jamiu Akinola were all arrested following a missing person’s report lodged at Onipanu divisional headquarters,

According to the police public relations officer, DSP Abimbola Oteyemi, the policemen at Onipanu commenced investigation into the sudden disappearance of the said person, and their efforts paid off when the charred body of the victim was discovered in an uncompleted building at Arobieye area of Ota without the trace of his assailants.

Mr. Oyeyemi said that the case was transferred to the homicide division of the state’s criminal investigation and intelligence department on the order of the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun.

“The CSP Femi Olabode led homicide team, in compliance with the cp directive, embarked on a technical and intelligence-based investigation, which led them to Otun Ekiti in Ekiti state where the suspect was discovered to be hibernating. On getting to Ekiti, the suspect got wind of the presence of the detectives and quickly escaped to Offa in Kwara state,” he said.

“With determination to apprehend him, the team continued trailing him and they later got information that he was in Benin Republic, where he had gone to attend the court session of Chief Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, and that he will soon be coming to Nigeria. ”

“On interrogation, Kehinde Salihu Jeili, who claimed to be a native of Apomu in Osun state confessed killing the victim.

He confessed further that he deliberately lured the victim to Ota where he and his gang members were waiting for him with the money he was matcheted

The confessional statements of the duo also led to the arrest of the other two suspects, Johnson Fakeye and Akinola Jamiu at Atan Ota and Owode Yewa respectively.

A Toyota Camry,  Toyota Corolla, and a Toyota Rave 4, whose owners had been gruesomely murdered were also recovered from the gang.

Similarly, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Ajogun, who was full of praise for the team for the investigative efforts and directed that anyone connected to the devilish gang be arrested

He, therefore, appealed to members of the public to always disclose their movement to at least one trusted person, whenever they have cause to keep an appointment with an unknown person.
