Vanguard reports that the suspects murdered the deceased, Garuba Mohammed, at Itadodo area of Ofada in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state, when they attempted to steal his cows when he was grazing.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, while confirming the incident, disclosed that the two suspects who were grazing the herd together with the victim lured him into a nearby bush where they killed him with their machetes.

However, luck ran out on the killers when a motorcyclist saw them and alerted the people of the area, who in turn called the police.

“The DPO of Owode Egba, , led his men to the scene and the two suspects were promptly arrested.

The commissioner of police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligent Department, SCIID, for further investigation," ASP Oyeyemi added.

The PPRO further stressed the command's determination to curb crime and criminality in the state, adding that the suspects would soon be charged to court at the conclusion of an investigation by the police.
