The Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Frank Mba, has confirmed the arrest of four additional suspects for the murder of House of Representatives member for Lagelu/Akinyele Federal Constituency, Temitope Olatoye, popularly known as ‘Sugar.’ This brings the number of suspects in custody to five.

Mba said, “I can confirm that we are making steady progress in our investigation into the murder of Olatoye. We have five suspects in custody and the operation to arrest other suspects involved in the heinous crime is ongoing. The suspects are still in the custody of the Oyo State Police Command where they are helping the police to track down other accomplices.” The Police spokesman added that the suspects may be transferred to Abuja next week. Police had earlier arrested Hon. Akinmoyede who is the chief whip of Oyo State House of Assembly, in connection with the murder which occurred during the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections last Saturday.
