Police suspect ritualists in studentsí murder


Police investigations have revealed that ritualists were behind the killing of two students of the Osun State Polytechnic, Iree.

Police investigations have revealed that ritualists were behind the killing of two students of the Osun State Polytechnic, Iree.

The revelation came on the heels of speculations that the killing had cultic underpinning.

Investigations by our correspondent showed that the police narrowed their investigations down to ritual motive, following the confession of the survivor of the attack, Tayo, alias Pump.

The suspected ritualists had severed the head of one of the students.

Their bodies, tied together, were dumped in a bush on the Eripa-Otan-Aiyegbaju Road.

Our correspondent gathered that the police had arrested eight persons while wives of some of the suspects were also interrogated.

The suspects comprised some guards of Iree town and other indigenes.

Investigation by the police was reportedly made cumbersome when many indigenes resisted arrest on the grounds that the police had no authority to interrogate them.

A source said that many of the guards had fled the town just as the police said a new strategy would be adopted to bring the culprits to book.

Police Public Relations Officer, Osun State Command, Mr. Joshua Olayemi, confirmed the development.

He added that the command was intensifying its investigation in order to bring the culprits to justice.
