From Clement Adeyi, Osogbo

THREE suspected members of an Islamist sect are in po­lice net in Osun State for al­legedly killing a two-year-old boy, Teslim Bakare, in Iragbiji, headquarters of Boripe Local Government Area of the state.

City Today gathered that the sect members, led by one Aremu, had been operat­ing in a mosque in Oke Mori Area of the town but reside in another part of the town.

The suspects, Ganiyu, Danku and Aremu allegedly abducted the victim at Ag­belekale compound and killed him after cutting his throat.

It was also learnt that the suspects cut off their vic­tim’s head and collect­ed his blood in a bucket.

Although the suspects were not caught in the act, nemesis caught up with them when a man (name withheld) un­known to them, recorded the gory scenes with his mobile phone and handed the record­ings to some persons, who later handed it to the police.

Speaking to newsmen on phone, a resident of Otapete area of the town where the leader of the sect lives, ex­plained: “No one knew who recorded the scene of the in­cident, but people have been suspecting them around here. Not long ago, Aremu, their leader, was expelled by the group and he subsequently es­tablished his own sect and has been leading them since then.”

A reliable security source said the suspects had confessed to the crime at the state com­mand Criminal Investigation Department, Osogbo.
