The Ogun state police command Friday declared an alleged serial killer, Feyisola Dosumu, popularly known as “Spartan” wanted for allegedly killing no fewer than five people in Ogere and Iperu in Ikenne local government area.
The Command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in Abeokuta, said the state commissioner of police had ordered the deployment of tactical squads to Ogere and its environs to fish out the suspect.
Blueprint gathered that Dosumu, an alleged cultist and drug addict, about three months ago hacked three people to death at Ogere and Iperu in Ikenne local government area of the state.
The suspect went again on a killing spree on Tuesday, killing two people, one each at Ogere and Iperu Remo.
Dosumu reportedly hacked a nursing mother to death at Ogere before killing a security guard attached to one poultry farm at Iperu Remo.
Our correspondent further gathered that, the Commissioner of police, Edward Ajogun was at Iperu and Ogere during the week over this incident.
A resident of one of the communities who spoke to Blueprint on condition of anonymity disclosed that a detachment of police and Vigilante as well as Neighborhood Watch went on the trail of this alleged cultist the very day he committed the crime, but couldn’t find him.
The source added that Dosumu about two weeks ago visited this same farm at Iperu, killed about hundred chickens but was chased away, only for him to come back on Sunday and killed the guard of the farm.
The alleged serial killer had been a thorn in the flesh of residents of Ogere Remo, his birthplace after joining a cult group.
He was alleged to have taken to drugs and admitted at Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Aro, Abeokuta, for treatment for mental disorder but escaped back to Ogere and became thorn in the flesh of the residents.
Dosumu was said to have boasted that he would continue to kill as many as possible; hence the palpable apprehension among the residents of other communities in Ikenne local government area of the state.
