The Oyo State Police Command has paraded Sunday Shodipe, the prime suspect arrested in connection with the multiple killings in the Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Shodipe was paraded alongside other suspects on Wednesday by the State Commissioner of Police, Nwachukwu Enwonwu.
According to Enwonwu, the suspect, after he escaped from police custody, had returned to Akinyele area of the state and carried out another killing.
The CP said the suspect escaped from police custody on August 11 and carried out the killing of one Funmilayo Oladeji at her home two days after his escape.
“Upon interrogation, he explained that he managed to escape from custody when an Inspector attached to the Divisional Police Headquarters, Mokola gave him the permission to take his bath within the premises of the station.
“He also confessed that on August 13 at about 2:30pm, he attacked one Mrs Funmilayo Oladeji in her house at Onikeke community in Akinyele.
“He stated that he inflicted machete injury on the woman’s head and left her in the pool of her blood,” the CP said.
He added that the suspect who was standing trial before his escape would be handed over to the correctional centre soon.
Narrating how he killed the woman, Shodipe said, he used a machete to inflict injuries on her head.
The CP said the suspect was kept in police custody because the prisons pleaded to keep him due to space constraint and COVID-19 pandemic.
