“The corpse of the deceased was later recovered at a nearby  bush along the Awe-Oyo road and has been deposited at the morgue for autopsy.

” Investigation conducted by the police led to the arrest of the suspect on April 18 at Sango-Ota, Ogun State,  where he had relocated.

” The Vibe Pontiac car of the deceased was also recovered in Mokola, Ibadan, where the suspect was attempting to dispose it off,” Olukolu said.

The suspect told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that he killed the deceased in revenge for the death of his baby.

“My wife was pregnant during the period I was sacked and the baby died because there was no money to take care of my wife during pregnancy.

” But I am now regretting my action,” he said.

NAN reports that the other 12 suspects were paraded for attacking a police team leader with a machete  and vandalising a  police Hilux vehicle.

The commissioner  said that the suspects while armed with dangerous weapon invaded Ayegun and Fatusi communities to attack innocent members  of the public as well as the police team deployed in the area.

” The police team did a tactical withdrawal  and went to regroup with a team consisting of SARS and  Puff Adder while  discreet investigation and superior force led to the arrest of the suspects, ” Olukolu said.

NAN reports that items recovered from the suspects included two beret caps belonging to police men, three cutlasses,  digger,  shovel and one empty cell of cartridge.(NAN)
