Police Arrest Two For Killing Motorcyclist In Ogun.

The Ogun state police command have arrested two men, Lekan Odusote and Monday John for allegedly killing and snatching a bike from a yet-to-be identified commercial motorcyclist in Ijebu-Ode area of the state.

Spokesperson for the police command, Dsp Abimbola Oyeyemi who confirmed the arrest of the duo in a statement on Wednesday, said the two suspects had lured their victim to Ikangba area Obalende in Ijebu-Ode, where they killed him and took his corpse to an uncompleted building, dug a shallow grave and buried him and also went further to sell his motorcycle for 120 thousand naira.

Oyeyemi added that luck ran out of the suspects after an argument ensued between them over the sharing formula of the money gotten from the sale of the victim’s motorcycle and which attracted the attention of passersby and residents who informed the police and subsequently led to their arrest.

The state commissioner of police Bashir Makama has, however, ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
