Panic as suspect apprehended in connection with ex-CBN staff’s m¥rder, escapes from police custody in Ogun State – Instablog9ja

The only suspect apprehended in connection with the m¥rder of CBN staff, Kehinde Fatinoye has escaped from police custody in Ogun State.

It is reported that on Saturday the Ogun State police command had cracked down on the gang that perpetrated the gr¥esome m¥rder of a couple, Kehinde and Bukola Fatinoye  and their son, Oreoluwa.

It is reported that one of the two prime suspects arrested in connection with the m¥rder of the ex-staff of the Central Bank of Nigeria, his wife and their son on New Year’s Day had escaped from police custody.

According to reports, one Felix who lived with the  Fatinoye family had raised the alarm that he  recognised  the driver of the couple, identified as Lekan allegedly participating in the m¥rder of the family. Felix had reportedly  raised his voice when he was taken to the river side where Oreoluwa was drowned, indicting  Lekan who was the late wife’s driver of being involved in the dastardly act.

Lekan was subsequently arrested and taken into the custody for questioning. An eye-witness reported that the two suspects were actually in police custody until Friday when one of them, Lekan, escaped and bolted away.
