“This brings to an end his reign of terror. His gang is responsible for mysterious disappearance of people in Ikorodu over a period of time whom they kidnapped, demanded for ransom, murdered and dumped them in septic tank. They are serial killers, rapists and cultists.

“Three members of his gang were earlier arrested by SARS operatives and they led the operatives to their den in Ikorodu where corpses of the two Bureau de Change operators and two other victims were recovered. A sustained monitoring of the fugitive ring leader finally yielded positive results as the team eventually traced him to his hideout at Odogunya, Ikorodu,” he said.
