Its spokeswoman, SP Yemisi Opalola, in a statement by the command said the suspects were arrested after the son of the late chief reported the case of a missing person to the police.

“On Saturday, at about 12:30 p.m., one Oladepo Olasunkanmi of Kereja Area, Oraigbomina, under Oke Ila Police Division, reported that his father, Chief Oladepo Asaolu, was missing,” the police disclosed. “He said his father left his house at Kereja at about 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday with an unknown commercial motorcyclist, and he was yet to return home after four days.”

The statement further revealed that police intelligence and investigation later led to the arrest of the motorcyclist who conveyed the missing chief on the day he was last seen.

The police added that the arrested motorcyclist confessed that the chief had been killed and took the police to the forest where the victim’s body was dumped.
