The Osun Police Command has arrested a serial killer, Teslim Raji, also known as Akerele, and his suspected accomplice, Femi Bamidele, for alleged serial killings, kidnappings and gun running within the Ikire axis of the state.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mrs. Abiodun Ige, while parading the suspects in Osogbo, said the main suspect, Raji, was arrested after a series of complaints by residents.
She said the serial killer, Raji, who is being investigated, was arrested last year, charged to court and granted bail but later jumped bail.
She said after jumping bail, the suspect still went ahead to kill someone and that since then, the Police had been on his trail.
“His co-conspirator was arrested earlier when our officer went to his house and one of his boys tried to escape,” she said.
