Oyo police places N500,000 reward on escaped suspect of Akinyele killings

Another Killing in Akinyele of Ibadan, as Barakat's Killer Allegedly Escapes from Police Net

Oyo State Police Command on Thursday announced a reward of five hundred thousand naira (500,000) for anyone with useful information that can lead to the re-arrest of the escaped suspect arrested in connection with a series of killings in Akinyele local government area of the state.

Recalls that Sunday Shodipe, the prime suspect who was arrested in connection with killings of Barakat Bello, Azeezat Shomuyiwa and including a five-year-old boy identified as Mujeeb had earlier been paraded along with two others on 17th July this year by Enwonwu.

However, the police in the state said that the suspect has escaped from Police custody.

In a statement issued by its Public Relations Officer (PRO) Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi, Oyo State Police command said the suspect escaped after he was charged to court.

The police have, however, placed a five hundred thousand naira bounty on Shodipe’s head asking anyone with credible information that will lead to the re-arrest of the suspect.

“Consequently, the general public is hereby implored to arrest and immediately hand him over to the nearest Police Station for necessary action. The Command can be contacted on GSM Numbers: 08035632410 and 07066003536.
