The Ogun State Police Command has made a breakthrough in the case of the recent attack at the Ajadeh Event Centre in Iperu Remo, along Sagamu Road, which tragically ended in the murder of a Babcock University lecturer and the abduction of two others.

Naija News reports that the incident, which took place on the night of Friday, April 19, has led to the apprehension of a key suspect.

During the incident, nine masked assailants stormed the event center around 9:30 pm, opening fire indiscriminately and attempting to kidnap patrons.

In addition to the lecturer’s death, two individuals were kidnapped from the scene, one of whom has been identified only as Dare, a manager at a car stand.

Omolola Odutola, the spokesperson for the Ogun State Police Command, provided details of the event and subsequent police actions.

“Eyewitnesses were able to count eight men dressed in black and armed with guns who emerged from an unknown place into the relaxing lounge and opened fire indiscriminately,” Odutola reported.

The suspect, identified as Awada Ishaya, was employed as a security officer at the event center, which had only opened two weeks prior to the incident.

Ishaya, a native of Plateau State, was taken into custody after police noted suspicious activities linked to him. “The police said suspicious occurrences led to him being flagged and brought in for detailed interrogation,” the spokesperson added.

As the investigation continues, the police are working to track down the remaining suspects involved in the attack and to ensure the safe return of the kidnapped victims.
