Nigerian Homicide Unit Uncovers Ritualists' Den

A team from the homicide unit of the Ogun State Police Command has moved to the Iyana-Ilogbo area of Sango-Ota, for investigations to uncover persons directly or remotely connected to the running of the suspected ritualists’ den in the area.
The den was discovered beside the abandoned Ayokunnu filling station, about 20 metres from the seedy Iyana Ilogbo bus stop on Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway last Saturday.
Two suspects – Babatunde Taofeek and Hammed Hassan, have already been arrested by policemen from the Sango Police State and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad when they swooped on the building following a tip off from a member of the community.
Also, decomposing remains of a male victim, clothes, shoes, wigs, matchete, and bags were also retrieved at the den to the shock and rage of residents of the area.
However, on Sunday, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the team deployed to the area will ascertain and arrest those connected with it.
Adejobi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police(DSP), told The Nation that the team headed by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Sina Olukolu, had began work on the order of the Commissioner of Police, AbdulMajid Ali.
He assured that whoever that is connected to the incident upon investigation would be arrested.
