The Alakinyele of Akinyele, Oba James Odeniran, has wondered how the suspect, Sunday Shodipe escaped from the hands of the police despite being seen taken around with his legs chained.
In a chat with the Nigerian Tribune, he noted that there was a need for a thorough investigation by the police to detect those police officers who were complicit to allowing Sodipo to escape from custody.
According to Odeniran, the escape of a suspected serial killer from police custody pointed to the fact that no one was safe in the country.
“He was arrested and confessed to killing about eight persons in Akinyele. When another killing was recorded, he was seen around just before the killing.
“How did someone in the custody of the police escape? That points to something fishy. Immediately, the suspect escaped, the first thing we expected was for the police to declare the suspect wanted.
“He was being taken around with his legs chained. We are therefore surprised to hear that he escaped. No one is safe in Nigeria if a suspect can escape from police custody.
“The killer is not an indigene of Akinyele; he comes in here to do the dastardly acts. He said he and his parents used to live in Moniya. We enjoin our police to be more serious with their duties. They have some betrayers among them and they should fish them out,” Odeniran said.
Insideoyo.com reports that the Nigeria Police Force has declared Shodipe wanted and has urged the public to be on the lookout.
