Oyeyemi, however, said the suspect was arrested on Wednesday around Agodo community, through the combined effort of policemen attached to Ogbere Area and local hunters. The manhunt for the suspect, Oyeyemi he said, followed orders by the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu for the capture of suspect as soon as possible.
