Ogun PPRO, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi

Ogun State Police Command says it is after a yet to be identified rapist and serial killer operating in Remo axis of the state.

Crime report from the command indicated that the suspect operates as commercial motorcyclist popularly known as Okada, but he picks his targeted victim as passengers, and such passengers are usually women.

Afterwards he takes such victims to an isolated area, raped and brutally murdered them in cold blood.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi said it became necessary to alert the public of the modus operandi of this criminal element, so that they could be on guard and not fall prey.

Oyeyemi said, “The modus operandi of the serial killer is to pretend as a commercial motorcyclist popularly known as “okada” and pick his targeted victim as passenger.

“Such victims who are mainly women will be taken to an isolated area, raped and brutally murdered in cold blood.

“While the Command is doing everything possible to apprehend the hoodlum, it is necessary to alert the public to be on their guard and be wary of any okada man with whom they want to embark on a journey, most especially in the night.

“For safety reasons, the command hereby advise that passengers should endeavour to demand for the phone number of okada rider who wants to carry them in the night.

“They should also make a call to such number to ascertain its authenticity.

“This will give security agencies a lead in their investigation in the event of any untowards development.”

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police,  Lanre Bankole, while assuring the public that everything possible will be done to fish out the serial killer within the shortest possible period, urged the public to cooperate with the police by giving adequate and useful information that can assist in this onerous task.

Recall that a beauty queen who was also a Mass Communication student of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta, Miss Blessing Odeh, was allegedly raped and murdered at Ipara Remo axis recently. The police has yet to unravel those who perpetrated this dastardly act.
