‘Serial killer’ behind 60 deaths arrested in Ogun – Police

An alleged 33-year-old cultist, Femi Kuti, has confessed to have participated in the killing of over 50 people in Ijebu area of Ogun State.

Mr. Kuti is presently in the custody of the Ogun State Police Command.

The Ogun State Police Command made this known while parading the suspect at the headquarters of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, located along Presidential Boulevard, Abeokuta. The police said Mr. Kuti and his gang have been terrorizing the state.

According to the Commissioner of Police, Ikemefuna Okoye, the suspect, an indigene of Okuku, Odo-Otin Local Government Area of Osun State, was expelled from the Tai Solarin College of Education, Ijegun, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State some years back,.

He added that, he was arrested on Monday, October 6, at a spot opposite the Ijebu Ode Local Government Secretariat at about 8.30pm.

Mr. Ikemefuna said the suspected cultist was in the midst of about 100 other cultists and hence, the police met a heavy resistance that led to exchange of fire.

The Commissioner added that, Mr. Kuti was fatally injured by police bullets before he was eventually taken away by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

“The suspect who has been terrorizing the state for some years now has confessed to many killings in the state. He confessed to have killed more than 10 people while he has participated, with his gang, in the killing of more than 50 people in Ijebu Area and Ogun State in general,” the commissioner said.

“The serial killer had been arrested by the police on several occasions and was sentenced to imprisonment. But he’s so recalcitrant and continued his dirty business of assassination and robbery after his jail terms. He is assisting the police in its investigations and will soon be charged to court,” Mr. Okoye added.

    Thank God this horrible ritual killer is not from east of the Niger, otherwise foul-mouthed Mohstone ati Kay Soyemi would have talked treason. Without doubt the two evil advocates plus a handful of their fellow ritualists will come out to defend Femi Kuti and blame us or the police. Some may even argue that he wasn’t yet born when the crimes were committed. But for sure many will blame Kuti’s atrocities on Jonathan. Tribalism is a bane on Nigeria.
