Ajisebutu said Omininikoron was arrested after police operatives intensified a manhunt for him after the discovery of Oluwabamise’s corpse on Saturday dumped on the Carter Bridge in the Ebute-Ero area of the Lagos Island.

The police spokesman assured Nigerians that the perpetrators of the dastardly act would soon be charged to court and made to face the full weight of the law.
