Serial killer confesses: I’ve killed 50 people

A suspected serial killer, Femi Kuti, has allegedly confessed to killing about 50 people in his three years of being a cultist.The Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of Ogun State Police Command, in its onslaught against cultists in the state, especially along Ijebu axis, arrested Kuti, an alleged key member of Black Axe (a.k.a. Aye Confraternity) in Ijebu Ode on Monday.

Three of a five-man gang of alleged fake Customs officers, Ajayi Jemibewon, Brilliant Oruora and Farotimi Sunday, were also arrested by police from the command along the Lagos-Sagamu Expressway, with 11 assorted cars, now parked at the office of the state SARS in Abeokuta.

Kuti, reportedly said he joined the cult in 2011 and that with his gang, he had killed 50 people to date.

Parading the four suspects before journalists in Abeokuta on Thursday, the state Commissioner of Police,  Ikemefuna Okoye stated that the arrest of the suspected serial killer was a major boost for the command, alleging that the suspect and his gang had killed about 50 persons in the state.

He said last Sunday, two rival cult groups clashed in Ijebu Igbo, during which two persons were killed. Kuti’s arrest, the police boss said was made possible through information from members of the public.

Okoye said Kuti was arrested in Ijebu- Ode on Monday by officers of the state Anti-Robbery Squad, after members of his gang engaged the police in a gun battle during which the suspect was hit in the leg and arrested.

Speaking on the alleged fake Customs officers, Okoye stated that there were five impersonators, but two of them escaped.

The impersonators usually stopped vehicles on the highway, demand for their papers and in the process, snatched such vehicles from the unsuspecting owners, he alleged.

The snatched vehicles, he added were usually transferred  by the gang to Akure  in Ondo State, where they had a dealer who would dispose of the cars. So far, 11 assorted cars had been recovered, Okoye said.

He assured the public, especially, residents of the state, of their safety, as “the command had put in place necessary measures for this.”

Okoye added that a special squad had been inaugurated by the command in the Ijebu axis, to curtail the rising wave of insecurity in the area.
