The Nigeria Police Force has arrested the murderers of late Olalekan Ogunranti, Managing Director, Todays Prints Ltd.

The late Ogunranti was kidnapped on 16 May, 2016 by some unknown gunmen in Osun State.

However, with the slow pace of the investigation, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Ag.IGP, Ibrahim Idris, on assumption of office ordered the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) of the IGP’s Monitoring Unit to take over the matter and ensure the arrest of the culprits in record time.

A statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Don Awunah said the Intelligence Response Team swung into action using all the technical resources of the Force available to them for the arrest of five prime suspects.

The suspected murders are: Asimiyu Agboola, Adesina Meyidan, Ramoni Afolabi, Akeem Akorede and Coker Daniel.

Coker Daniel, one of the suspects and a 32 year old graduate, in his confessional statement led the IRT operatives to Ibukun River in Ibukun Local Government area of Osun State where the mutilated body of the late Ogunranti was recovered and deposited at the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Oshogbo as other suspects were arrested in Lagos and Ondo States respectively.
