“He saw where one of his security men, Alex Akinyemi, carried the corpse. He quickly reported the matter to the police.
“On the receipt of the case, police swung into action and the security guards, namely Dauda Aliyu and Samuel Ojo, were arrested.
“When the CCTV was played back, they (guards) identified the person in the film to be one Alex Akinyemi, a day guard at the guest house at Under-G area of Ogbomosho.”
He explained that the security guard was arrested on July 6 in Ogbomosho.
He added that the corpse of the student was removed and taken to LAUTECH teaching hospital for post mortem.
Galadanchi said efforts were being intensified to arrest the fleeing suspect, Charles Aregbesola, while further investigation was being conducted.
The suspect, however, insisted that he was not the killer, saying another man he identified simply as Segun, was responsible.
Akinyemi said, “I have been working as a security guard in this guest house for over two months.
“I only know Segun aka police, as a resident of that area before I saw him dropping the corpse around 8am that day.
“He threatened to kill me with an axe that he was holding that day if I reported him to the police. He promised to give me N500, 000 but he did not give me.”
In a related development the SCID paraded a 50 – year-old man, Wajud Akande, for conspiracy, stealing and conversion of goods worth N1.2m.

He said, “But the driver of the truck diverted the goods and sold it at Agbeni market in Ibadan. Upon investigation, Wajud Akande was arrested in his house in Molete, Ibadan were he kept part of the diverted goods.”
