The Police have arrested Ibiyemi Wasiri, a “serial killer’’ in Ogun state.

ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the police spokesman in the state, confirmed the development on Thursday.

Oyeyemi said Wasiri was arrested on Dec. 6.

He added that the suspect, an ex-convict, had been on the wanted list of the police in connection with two murder cases.

He said the suspect was arrested by operatives of the Ilaro Divisional Headquarters, following intelligence that he was sighted at a criminal hideout at Igboro in Ilaro.

“Upon the information, the DPO, Ilaro Division, CSP Olayemi Jacob, mobilised his men to the scene, where the suspect was arrested in the midst of some hoodlums, while others escaped.

“A bag recovered from him was searched, and one cut to size locally made pistol and seven live cartridges were recovered,’’ he said.
