The Osun State Police Command says it has arrested two suspects over alleged robbery and beheading of a rice dealer.
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, made this known while parading the suspects and other crime suspects at the Police Headquarters on Thursday in Osogbo.
Adeoye said the arrested suspects were contracted to kill one Isiaka Sanusi, a 43-year-old businessman, on May 14, 2018, at about 9 pm, along Iwo Road , Osogbo.
He said “one Yekini Ayinde , also known as ‘Abija,’ (a principal suspect still at large) had contacted the deceased to supply him 500 bags of rice.
“The deceased was lured into making the supply in Osogbo, from Saki in Oyo State, lodged in a hotel after the goods were supplied and later taken out to be killed.”
He added that Ayinde contracted the arrested suspects, Dauda Amusat, known as Adasi; and Pariola Kabiru, with five others, to kill the businessman after collecting the money initially paid to him for the supply.
