  • Police have arrested notorious thug, Oko-Ilu in Osun.


THE NATION REPORTERS reports that the Osun State Police Command has arrested a notorious thug in Ede, Rasidi Oko-Ilu.

It was learnt that Oko-Ilu was arrested yesterday night in Ede.


Police Public Relations Officer, Osun Command, Mrs Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the arrest.

The police had over four months ago declared Oko-Ilu wanted for alleged murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and others.


Oko-Ilu, who has been terrorising Ede and allegedly caused deaths of many, was arrested by men of the anti cultism unit of the State police command.


He was arrested around 4 a.m. in his hideout in the State capital and is currently cooling off in the police custody.


Rasidi Oko-Ilu, a welder by vocation, is being trailed by the security agents for allegedly causing death of many people in Ede community.


‘Rasidi Baale Oko’lu’ was allegedly linked to the death of Hassan Adedeji, a Higher National Diploma graduate of Banking and Finance of Federal Polytechnic, Ede, awaiting his call-up letter, as well as, an Okada rider, whose identity was not made known.

He was consequently declared wanted by Osun State Police Command, saying anyone that harboured him would also be treated as a criminal.


A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer for Osun Command, Yemisi Opalola, in March said Rasidi was wanted in connection with offences of murder, arson, ritual killing and armed robbery.


It further read, “suspect has been causing menace in Ede and the entire Osun state. Anybody by harbour the suspect will be treated by the police as accomplice to the crimes. Anybody having useful information to his whereabouts will be handsomely rewarded.”
