“In compliance with the CP’s directive, the DPO and his detectives embarked on an intelligence and technically-based investigation that led them to Surulere area in Lagos State, where the suspect was hibernating and subsequently got him arrested on Monday, October 18, barely 24-hours after the dastardly act“, adding that “the suspect has made a confessional statement owning up to committing the crime,” said Oyeyemi.
Meanwhile, the suspect has been transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) on the order of CP Ajogun.
