Alleged Ibadan serial killer, Sunday Shodipe, has been narrating the story of how he escaped from Mokola Police Station located at Elizabeth Road, Ibadan, Oyo State on Tuesday.
According to him, the female Divisional Police Officer (DPO), who was recently deployed to the station, ordered one officer (Funsho) to allow him to take his bath.
He said the DPO had warned him not to make any attempt to escape while taking his bath, adding that he was not even thinking of running away at that point.
Shodipe disclosed that he finally escaped when he saw that the officer was engrossed in a discussion with another person and not paying attention to him.
He said, "The new female DPO asked officer Funsho to allow me take my bath. She cautioned me not to try to escape when I am taking my bath.
"I escaped when I saw him (officer Funsho) discussing with another person. I climbed the borehole pole and jumped the fence. The people living in the area saw me when I escaped but they did not raise any alarm."
We gathered that the whistle blower is a young man from Akure, Ondo State, who pleaded not to be mentioned, had volunteered to assist the police when he saw the notice and bounty placed on the suspect.
He was said to have traveled to Ibadan alongside three of his friends with a view to launching a manhunt for the suspect for three days.
Upon their arrival in the state, they were lodged in a hotel where they slept before commencing the search for the Escapee.
The three men were said to have trailed him to where he bought and smoked hemp in the city but decided not to arrest him because of the crowd in the area.
The locals later arrested him while he was alone in a hideout.
The suspect had killed about eight people, mainly women at Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Patmos Media Line had reported that the Inspector General of Police ordered extra police investigators to begin a man hunt for the 19 year old killer after the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde ordered for his immediate re-arrest.
Traditional rulers from Akinyele Local Government Area had also released local hunters to go get Oshodipe.
