How I escaped from Oyo police custody – Serial killer, Shodipe


The suspected serial killer in the Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State, Sunday Shodipe, has been re-arrested.

The Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State, Mr Olugbenga Fadeyi, who confirmed the development on the telephone to our correspondent in Ibadan on Sunday, said the 19-year-old suspect was back in custody.

Residents of the area were excited with the news of the re-arrest of the suspected ritual killer, warning that he must not be allowed to escape again.

The suspect, while narrating how he escaped, said he climbed a tank stand and scaled the fence when he was taken out to take his bath.

Shodipe said this in a video posted by Oriyomi Hamzat TV.

He spoke after he was re-arrested on Sunday.

He said, “The new DPO at Mokola Police Station told a policeman, Funso, that he should take us out to have our bath. The policeman took me out and he warned me against trying to escape. I didn’t even think of escaping when he said that.

“But when I saw that he was engrossed in his discussion with a man, I climbed the tank stand and scaled the fence. It was around 7 pm when I escaped.”
