The Ogun State Police Command has announced the arrest of Kehinde Jelili, nicknamed Oluomo, for allegedly killing Abiodun Odebunmi, a Point-of-Sale terminal operator, and Idowu Ademiluyi, an Uber driver.
DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, said investigators from the Command followed Jelili for approximately three months before arresting him.
Jelili was apprehended after returning to the state from Cotonou, Benin Republic, where he had gone to witness the trial of beleaguered Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Adeyemo, also known as Sunday Igboho, according to Oyeyemi.
The police said Jelili was arrested with three other suspected serial killers identified as Abiodun Akinola, Johnson Fakeye, and Jamiu Akinola. They had allegedly set ablaze Odebunmi’s remains after stealing N4m from him.
Three vehicles — a Toyota Camry, a Toyota Corolla and a Toyota Rave 4 — whose owners were murdered, were recovered from the gang.
Oyeyemi said the suspects were arrested on Wednesday following a report lodged at the Onipanu divisional police headquarters by a PoS attendant, Aanu Salaudeen.
