Police arrest suspected killer of Temitope Sugar

The Assistant Inspector General of Police in Zone Eleven, Leye Oyebade and Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Shina Olukolu, on Monday,said it has succeeded in arresting one person in connection with the killing of Honourable Temitope Olatoye a.k.a Sugar.

In a report by Tribune Online, the Police also stated that aside the suspect linked with Sugar’s case, about 18 persons, six guns, nine live cartridges, axe, knives and other miscellaneous items were recovered, while the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) had been carrying out investigations.

The AIG and the police commissioner, however, said that Sugar’s death was in no way connected with the elections that took place on the day he was killed.

Speaking with the Tribune Online exclusively on Monday, at the police headquarters in Ibadan, AIG Oyebade said that the police got enough facts and evidences that led to the arrest.

“We have got a suspect but we can’t reveal all the details. I was at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan with the Oyo State Commissioner of Police on Saturday. The Chief Medical Director of the UCH was also with us.

“From that point, we picked up the investigation. I want to assure members of the public that the IGP’s mandate is that no stone should be left unturned in unravelling the cause of the incident.

“But the incident is not directly connected with the elections, going by the venue of the incident and the information we gathered of what happened prior to the incident,” the AIG said.
