The Nigeria Police Force on Tuesday said it had arrested suspected killers of Olalekan Ogunranti, Managing Director, Todays prints Ltd.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Force Spokesman, Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Don Awunah, in Abuja.

It would be recalled that Ogunranti was kidnapped on May 16, by some unknown gunmen in Osun.

He said that following the slow pace of the investigation, the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, ordered the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) to take over the matter.

"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.

Awunah said that a 32-year-old graduate’s confession led IRT operatives to Ibukun River, in Ibukun Local Government Area of Osun, where the mutilated body of Ogunranti was recovered.

He said that other suspects were arrested in Lagos and Ondo states, respectively.

The spokesman said all the suspects confessed they kidnapped, killed and mutilated the body of Ogunranti to stop him from disturbing them about the huge sums of money they took from him.

Idris said the arrest of the suspects was a glaring evidence of the proactive nature of the police in the new dispensation.
He assured Nigerians that the police would always ensure their security of lives and property.
