Another serial killer arrested in Osun; Suspect jumped bail last year

Three weeks after Port Harcourt serial killer, Gracious David-West was arrested and made shocking confession on how he killed 15 women across 7 states in Nigeria, another serial killer has been arrested in Osun state a year after jumping bail.

Teslim Raji popularly known as Akerele and his accomplice, Femi Bamidele were arrested by the Osun State Police Command for alleged serial killings, kidnappings and gun running, within the Ikire axis of the state.

While parading suspects in Osogbo, the state Commissioner of Police, Mrs Abiodun Ige disclosed that the main suspect, Raji was arrested after series of complaints by residents of the area.

According to the police boss, she revealed that Raji who is currently under investigation  was arrested last year, charged to court and granted bail but later jumped bail.

“After jumping bail, the suspect still went ahead to kill someone and that since then, the police had been on his trail but his conspirator was arrested earlier when our officer went to his house and one of his boys tried to escape,” she said.

However, the police boss also disclosed that the command raided a shrine in Oosgbo, the capital of Osun state which has become a base used by fraudsters to defraud innocent members of the public and a suspected fraudster identified as Fatai Olanrewaju was arrested.

She said the raid on the shrine followed a complaint from a woman that she was duped by the suspect.

“The woman said the suspect had been collecting money under the guise that he was helping her.

“You can imagine the number of people who would have fell victims of his activities and the money rituals that would have been done here,” she said

The police boss, however, said all the suspects would be charged to court after the conclusion of investigation.
