The police have arrested some suspects allegedly involved in the killing of Mrs Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the Afenifere leader, Reuben Fasoranti.
A spokesman for the Ondo State Police Command, Mr Femi Joseph, confirmed this yesterday.
According to Mr Joseph, the suspects were arrested when a team of security operatives stormed the forests in the area near Ore in Ondo State.
The command’s spokesman, however, did not disclose the identities of those arrested.
He said investigations were still ongoing while suspects would be paraded as soon as possible.
Mrs Olakunrin was killed by armed men on Friday last week while travelling along the Benin-Ore Expressway in south-western Nigeria.
Her murder has sparked outrage from individuals and groups across the county, especially from leaders in the south-west region.
The arrest of the suspects was made public one day after the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, gave assurance that Olakunrin’s killers would be apprehended soon.
