The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu, NPM, has deployed additional investigative aids to Oyo State, south west Nigeria.
This was revealed in a statement signed by force public relations officer, Frank Mba.
According to the statement, the reason is to complement the efforts of the Oyo State Police Command in the ongoing manhunt and efforts aimed at re-arresting Sunday Shodipe, a prime suspect in the multiple murder of innocent citizens at Akinyele Local Government Area, Moniya, in Ibadan, the state capital.
In the statement, the additional deployment comprises crack detectives from the Intelligence Response Team, IRT and the Special Tactical Squad, STS of the Force Intelligence Bureau, Abuja.

Condemning the act, the IGP calls for calm and enjoins citizens to cooperate with the police by providing useful information that can lead to the unearthing of the whereabouts of the suspected serial killer.
