“Upon the information, the DPO Odogbolu division, Csp Afolabi Yusuf led his detectives to the scene but the suspects have already removed the head of the corpse and left. The police, there and then, embarked on an intelligence-based investigation which led to the arrest of the couple; Niyi and Remilekun Folorunso as well as Muyideen Tolubi,” he said.
