Police Parades Suspected Killers Of Missing OOU Students
Two students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) , Ago Iwoye, Ogun State, Adebisi Oriade and his girlfriend, Julian Imaga have allegedly been killed by suspected cultist.
Adebisi, a 300-Level Computer Science student of the University, and Julia, a diploma student at the same institution, were allegedly killed by two members of Aiye confraternity, Muritala Babatunde and Taiwo Razak.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, stated this at the state police command headquarters at Eleweran, Abeokuta, on Friday while parading no fewer than 25 suspects arrested for various offences ranging from armed robbery, cultism, stealing and rape.
Iliyasu, while parading the two major suspects among other suspected criminals, said one of the brothers of Adebisi, OriadeAdeola, had on June 3, 2018, reported to the police that Adebisi had left home since May 28, 2018 with his girlfriend in his car, a Honda Crosstour, marked FST-350-FA, but had yet to return.
He added that after receiving this complaint, the Police Intelligence Response Team, in collaboration with the operatives of the state command embarked on technical intelligence.
The Police boss said this led to the arrest of the two suspects, from whom an iPhone six and two pairs of sneakers belonging to Adebisi were recovered.
According to him, the suspects, on interrogation, confessed that they killed Adebisi and his girlfriend.
“They said they lured the victims to a junction at Oru Ijebu, where they were forcefully taken to a nearby bush and they smashed their heads with planks and gun.
He added that the decomposing bodies of the deceased had been recovered and deposited at the morgue of the State General Hospital, Ijebu Ode.
While speaking with newsmen, Muritala Babatunde confirmed that he belonged to the Aiye confraternity and that himself and two other accomplices killed the victims.
He alleged that he was late Adebisi’s friend and they had a deal relating to an Internet fraud in which over N2m was involved, claiming that Adebisi, despite many calls and entreaties, refused to give him his own share.
“He refused to pick my calls and I stopped calling him. On May 28, 2018, I got two of my men to join me and we abducted Adebisi and his girlfriend.
“He belonged to Alora cult. He and members of his group were threatening me, so we later killed him and his girlfriend by using planks.
He added that they killed Adebisi’s girlfriend, to cover up their track.
However, Adebisi’s father, Adedeji Oriade, denied the allegations made by Muritala, that his son was a cult member and an Internet fraudster.
“My son was never a cultist or an Internet fraudster. The suspect, Babatunde Muritala, kept going back and forth. He was quoted to have said that my late son used to help him with money but suddenly my son stopped and became arrogant and that was why he killed him, ” he said.
Julian’s mother, Olamma Ofor, who wept during the parade of the suspects, said she was aware of the relationship between her late daughter and Abebisi.
” I have two kids, Julian and her older brother : Julian is no more and she had promised me she would become a chief judge in Nigeria. Now that the aim is aborted, I demand justice, ” she said.
The Police Commissioner also disclosed that five police inspectors, seven sergeants and seven corporals serving in the state have been dismissed between July 2016 and June 2018 for various offences.
He added that four were arraigned after dismissal, while two inspectors, five sergeants and two corporals were demoted in ranks and 11 others were seriously reprimanded within the same period.
