The same victim had identified suspects who equally confessed to the alleged crimes.

“However, following the confessions, one Shola Ayeni a.k.a SENGERE was arrested in Iloro-Ekiti as well as one Aremu Olusegun Adebayo a.k.a SENIOR BOY at Ijero-Ekiti who were allegedly members of the dreaded gang.

“Upon the confession made by the arrested suspects, four receivers of stolen vehicles and others valuables namely: Idris Ayodeji, Ayeni Tope a.k.a TERIBA, Tirimisiyu Giwa and Wasiu Alabi a.k.a RADO were all arrested.

“Items recovered from the suspects are one locally made pistol, one cut to small size double barrel gun, two fabricated guns, six live cartridges and ten suspected stolen vehicles.

“All the arrested suspects confessed to the commission of the crime while effort is underway to arrest other fleeing suspects,” his statement reads.

Moreover, DSP Abutu, the PRO, in his address, announced the arrest and consequent arraignment of a fake soldier, impersonating a military personnel; a cattle rustler in connection with kidnapping, and a notorious kidnapper at the Atikankan area of Ado-Ekiti.

“On 07/06/2023 at about 14:40hrs, based on a tip-off, one Faponmile Matthew was arrested in Ado-Ekiti by the Command operatives for wearing Military Uniform and impersonating to be a military personnel. Upon search conducted in the house and premises of the suspect, a complete Military camouflage uniform, one camouflage knickers, two Navy vests and a pair of black boot were recovered.

“Investigation further revealed that the suspect had earlier been arrested by the Command for same offence of impersonating, charged to court and remanded in Correctional Centre, Ado-Ekiti.

“On 24/05/2023 at about 17:00hrs, upon information received, the Command operatives arrested one Abdulkadir Buba and Bande Abdullahi inside Ogotun-Ekiti forest who were in possession of eight rustled cattle and nine calves.

“During interrogation, the suspects confessed to have stolen the cattle from another gang of rustlers inside Opoile/Itapaji-Ekiti forest.

“The suspects further confessed that they were involved in the kidnapping and murder of one Abdullahi Muhammad inside Isan-Ekiti forest on 03/01/2023.

“They mentioned other members of their gang who are currently at large and effort is ongoing for their possible arrest.

On 27/05/2023 at about 18:00hrs, the Command Rapid Response Squad (RRS) arrested one Nohamu Umar in Atikankan area of Ado-Ekiti for involving in series of kidnappings in Ekiti State including the kidnapping of one Ojo Mathew and Chinyere Edeh on 02/05/2023 at about 16:00hrs in Odo-Oko farm settlement around Ikere-Ekiti who were later rescued.

“Effort is underway for the possible arrest of other fleeing suspects,” his statement further reads.

Meanwhile, DSP Sunday Abutu, while appreciating the public for the success of the apprehension, assured that the suspects would be properly arraigned.

“As I conclude, permit me to appreciate members of the public most especially good spirited individuals for their cooperation by giving timely and useful information that led to some of these achievements.
