The Oyo State Police Command also paraded a runaway killer of a member of Oyo State House of Assembly, Gideon Aremu, representing Oorelope Constituency, July last year.
The commissioner revealed that the suspect, who escaped to Ekiti, his country home, shortly after committing the act, had been on the Police wanted list.
In his words: “Nemesis caught up with the suspect when he was arrested in his criminal hideout after sneaking into the state and led another robbery gang to snatch a motorcycle from its owner at Egbeda area of the state.”
The suspect, Arobiole, popularly known as Judgment, admitted to the crime and confessed saying he and two of his gang members were responsible for the murder.
Narrating how he committed the crime with two others, Judgment said:
“It was Toiheeb, who initiated the idea. The lawmaker was described as a very generous man, who always gave people in the neighbourhood money. “We trailed him to his house and as he tried to alight from the car, we pointed guns at him. The lawmaker was surprised to see his neighbour among us. He held him by the shirt and said ‘Even you.’ “We collected his phone then I shot him because he was struggling with us. We thought since he knew one of us, he would expose us sooner or later. It was after we killed him that we knew he was a very important person in Oyo
