The police command in Osun says it has arrested two suspects over alleged robbery and killing of a rice dealer by beheading him.

The State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fimihan Adeoye, paraded the suspects and other crime suspects at the Police Headquarters on Thursday in Osogbo.

Adeoye said the arrested suspects were contracted to kill one Isiaka Sanusi, a 43-year-old businessman, on May 14, 2018, at about 9pm, along Iwo Road, Osogbo.

One Yekini Ayinde, also known as ‘Abija’, (a principal suspect still at large) had contacted the deceased to supply him 500 bags of rice.

The deceased was lured into making the supply in Osogbo, from Saki in Oyo State, lodged in a hotel after the goods were supplied and later taken out to be killed.

Ayinde contracted the arrested suspects, Dauda Amusat, known as Adasi and Pariola Kabiru, with five others, to kill the businessman after collecting the money initially paid to him for the supply.

Amusat and his gang killed the victim by cutting off his head, and later confessed how four members of the gang took away the head for ritual purpose.

CP Adeoye said three of the seven-man gang had earlier been arrested and charged to court, and that the newly arrested suspects would equally be charged after completion of investigation.

He said the principal suspect in the case, Ayinde, was however still at large, but promised that the command would do the needful to ensure his arrest.
