However, with the slow pace of the investigation, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on assumption of office ordered the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the IGP’s Monitoring Unit to take over the matter and ensure the arrest of the culprits in record time.
The Intelligence Response Team swung into action using all the technical resources of the Force available to them for the arrest of five prime suspects.
Those arrested are: Asimiyu Agboola, Adesina Meyidan, Ramoni AfolabiAkeem Akorede and Coker Daniel.
One of the suspects, 32-year-old graduate, Coker Daniel, in his confessional statement led IRT operatives to Ibukun River in Ibukun local government area of Osun state where the mutilated body of the late Olalekan Ogunranti was recovered and deposited at LAUTECH Oshogbo as other suspects were arrested in Lagos and Ondo States respectively.
All suspects confessed they kidnapped, killed and mutilated the body of the late Olalekan Ogunranti to stop him from disturbing them of huge sums of money they duped the deceased.
The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris said the arrest of these murderers is a glaring evidence of the proactive nature of the Nigeria Police Force in the new dispensation, assuring Nigerians that the Nigeria Police will always ensure the security of lives and property.
