Suspected killers of Olufon of Ifon in Ose LGA of Ondo State, Oba Israel Adeusi, have been arrested.

The Commander of the Ondo Security Network Agency (Amotekun Corps), Chief Adetunji Adeleye, disclosed this during a press briefing in Akure, the state capital, on Wednesday.

Adeleye said that the suspects were nabbed by a combined team of security operatives that stormed Elegbaka forest after Oba Adeusi’s killing.

However, he said he would not name the suspects in order not to jeopardise ongoing investigations into the incident.
