2 suspected cultists nabbed, reveal how they killed 2 OOU undergraduates

The arrest of two suspected cultists identified as Murtala Babatunde, 29, and Taiwo Razaq, 18, has been confirmed by the Ogun State Police Command.

Reports say the two suspects who are members of the cult group, Aiye Confraternity were arrested in connection with the murder of one Oriade Adebisi, 22, and his girlfriend, Juliana Eke Imaga, who were both students of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye.

According to one Oriade Adeola Rafiu (a relation of one of the victims, Oriade Adebisi) who reported the disappearance of his relation to the police, Adebisi was driving in his Honda Crostour Car together with his girlfriend, Julian, at Oru-Ijebu after paying his friend ‘Akogun’ a visit when he was kidnapped.

In his police report, Rafiu stated that; “All of a sudden as he was driving towards Oru junction, three armed men emerged on a motorcycle and whisked away the said Oriade Adebisi and his friend together with the car to unknown destination”, the report said.

“On the receipt of this complaint, operatives of the IGP-Intelligence Response Team (IRT), led by DCP Abba Kyari, in collaboration with Oyo State Federal SARS and Ogun State Police Command, swooped on the hoodlums and two of the principal suspects (Muritala Babatunde and Taiwo Rasak) were arrested.

“An iPhone X with etisalat sim and two pairs of canvas shoes belonging to the deceased Oriade Adebisi were recovered from the first suspect (Muritala Babatunde)”.

The police report also quoted the confession of one of the suspects Babatunde who is said to have dropped out from the University in Ago Iwoye.

The police report added that; “On May 28, 2018, at about 2300hrs, having noticed the said Oriade Adebisi’s movement along Oru-Ijebu Junction, whom he had been nursing criminal intents against, Babatunde quickly called his gang members (Rasak Taiwo aka IKU and Sodiq) and the said Oriade Adebisi and his girlfriend were kidnapped in Adebisi car and taken to the bush along Ijebu-Ode Awa/Ibadan expressway where both of them were killed”, the report said.

“He confessed further that before Oriade Adebisi was killed, he ordered him to deactivate his password on his iPhone and he took the iPhone and two pairs of shoes from him and thereafter abandoned the car at the expressway, having dumped the bodies of Adebisi and his girlfriend in a bush at the back of an uncompleted building where they were murdered.

“He confessed that the late victim, whom he said was a Yahoo Boy, was giving money to a rival cult group and was not giving him money and had not recognized him as the overall cult leader in that area”.

A police source revealed that the decomposing corpses of the victims were recovered on June 19, 2018 and deposited at the General Hospital’s morgue Ijebu Ode for autopsy.

The car was also recovered and parked at Awa Division, Ogun State while the suspects’ guns were equally recovered after they were arrested, the source added.
