Attacked were Saburi Seteolu, Raheem Bello, Tunde Adesanya, Suleiman Adebesin, Azeez Alabi and Kola Sodehinde.

Confirming the incident to our correspondent today, Ogun State Police Command spokesman, DSP Muyiwa Adejobi said, though,the police were trying to ascertain the circumstances that led to the incident, “information available to us is that the suspect had an argument with the youths before he poured PMS on them in Ago-Oko area. And I can confirm to you that he is cooling his heels in our custody now..

“For now, we cannot ascertain other circumstances that led to the incident but we have the suspect in our custody and we are working hard to untie what led to it”, he said. Adejobi further stated that the State Police Commissioner, CP Ikemefuna Okoye, has ordered a comprehensive investigation into the matter, adding that the suspect would be charged to court as soon as investigation into the matter was concluded.
