Police authorities in Oyo State have arrested three Islamic clerics for allegedly beheading a middle-aged man in Ibadan, the state capital.

The suspects are currently being detained at the Oyo State Criminal Investigation Department.

According to PUNCH, it was revealed that the victim, who was lured to a bush at Moniya in Akinyele local government area of the state, was said to be working for one of the suspected killers.

It was gathered that the victim was lured to the area where he was allegedly killed under the pretext of being awarded a job. His head was reportedly severed.

The suspects were later arrested at Apete in the Ido local government area of the state.

However, many residents expressed shock over the incident.

One of the residents, who did not want her name in print, said, “It was so pathetic. One of the alleged murderers was a popular cleric known for his distinct turban among the Islamic community of Alapata.”

A reliable police source, who confirmed the incident said the alleged assailants were landlords in his jurisdiction, but the heinous act was said to have been perpetrated in Moniya.

He said, “The case has been transferred to the Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku, for further investigation.”
