Police Arrest Two For Killing Driver In Ondo

Two suspects have been arrested by the Ondo State Police Command on Tuesday in connection with the killing by stoning of a 35-year-old man, Olorunfemi Tope, in Akure, the state capital.

Tope was killed in a mob attack in the Ijoka Area of Akure on Monday after his Toyota Camry car allegedly crushed two people to death and injured others.

The deceased was said to have lynched while his vehicle was set ablaze by some people in the area when some fetish items were allegedly found in his car, raising suspicion that he was a ‘Yahoo boy.’

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed that two persons had been arrested in connection with the mob attack.

She said: “We have arrested two among the people that were involved in the mob attack. One of them is an artisan and the other one is an okada rider.

“We are still on the trail of others, when we arrest them, we will parade them and charge them to court after our investigation.”
