Killings: Oyo CP, deputies relocate to crime scene



FOLLOWING the killing of Barakat Bello and Azeezat Shomuyiwa at their residences at Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State last week, the Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Joe Nwachukwu Enwonwu, has relocated his office to the crime scene to resolve the murder mysteries.

  Also Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers of Moniya, Ojoo and other police tactical units, have relocated to the council area to solve the mystery of the killings.

  This was contained in a press release made available to journalists by the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Olugbenga Fadeyi, on Saturday.

  Fadeyi, who stated that the murder of Azeezat seemed like a ritual killing as she had her head smashed with a stone, however, denied the news making the rounds, especially on social media, that she was a student of the University of Ibadan.

  He assured that the police would get to the root of both killings, while urging members of the public to be extra vigilant and security conscious at all times.

  Fadeyi quoted the commissioner as warning residents to be security conscious and embark on bush clearing.

  While Barakat was allegedly raped before being killed last Monday at her parents’ house, Azeezat had her head smashed with a stone in her rented apartment.
