At the briefing, the commissioner announced that the suspects paraded were arrested in connection with murder, kidnapping, cultism and unlawful possession of human skull while several weapons, including guns, cutlasses, assorted charms and expended cartridges were recovered from them.
On the killing of Iyaloja of Ijebuland, Sadiat Elewuju, who was murdered on July 8, the police commissioner disclosed that one person had been charged to court for the killing but declined to reveal the identity of the suspect.
“Our investigation so far confirmed that he perpetrated the act but tried to hide under a cover that six people were seen.
“We didn’t want to parade him because it’s a case that we have already charged to court. From all available information and the investigation conducted, the boy is a very close person to the woman. He was the person that saw the Iyaloja last, he was also the one that took care of her,” the police boss said.
