The Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps (So-Safe Corps) has arrested one Ibrahim Ogunrinde, a 46-year-old resident of Adu Town, Ajebo Road, Mile 6, Abeokuta, for attempted murder.

According to a statement issued by the Office of the State Commander of the Corps, Commander (Dr) Soji Ganzallo, through the Office of Director of Information and Public Relations, Assistant Commander Moruf Yusuf, the suspect was arrested at Ijaye Garage on Thursday, June 6, 2024, at about 2.30 pm.

The statement revealed that Ibrahim Ogunrinde, a butcher and farmer, had pretended to be a passenger and asked the victim, Kosu Daniel (aka “Jeje”), to take him to Olubo Town on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, at noon. He then allegedly stabbed Kosu Daniel in the neck and arm, leaving him in a pool of blood, and escaped with the victim’s motorbike.

The suspect confessed that he was motivated by a desire to eliminate the victim, who he believed had an affair with his wife two months before the incident.

Ganzallo said the suspect believed he had succeeded in killing the victim, not knowing that Kosu Daniel was rushed to the hospital and is currently receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta.

“The suspect and the recovered motorbike have been transferred to the Nigeria Police Force, SWAT, Magbon, for further investigation and likely prosecution,” the commander said.

Ganzallo praised the corps’ efforts in apprehending the culprit, stating that it would deter other criminally minded individuals.
