The Ogun State Police Command arrested a suspect linked to the murder of Kehinde and Oluwabukunola Fatinoye, who were killed in the early hours of New Year’s Day in Abeokuta, the state capital.

Kehinde and Oluwabukunola were killed early Sunday morning at their residence in the Government Reserve Area, Ibara, Abeokuta, after returning from a crusader duty. His assassins also set fire to their corpses and kidnapped his son and the maid.

Kehinde Fatinoye was a former employee of the Central Bank of Nigeria and his wife was a former employee of Abeokuta Federal Agricultural University.

State police command spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi revealed that a suspect had been arrested, adding that an investigation was underway.

“The event occurred after 12 in the morning. It is true that a couple was murdered and burned down at their residence in Abeokuta, shortly after returning from the Crossover Service.

“This is a clear case of murder and we will leave no stone unturned in unraveling who is behind the murders. One person has been arrested by our operatives in connection with the incident. We will get to the root of the matter as the investigation has since started,” Oyeyemi said.

The remains of Kehinde and Oluwabukunola Fatinoye were buried on Monday.

The burial service, which was conducted by SK Oyewale, took place Monday at Christ Anglican Church in the Iporo-Ake area of ​​the city. Family members and a large number of supporters attended.
