A combined operation of operatives of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), Vigilante and other groups has led to the arrest of Iskili Wakili, a notorious Fulani bandit terrorising Oyo communities.
Wakili was arrested after the group engaged him and his men in a fierce gun battle.
There had been reports that Wakili and his gang were involved in the killings and kidnapping of several people in Ibarapa, Oke Ogun, Oyo State.
Gani Adams, the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, confirmed Wakili’s arrest in a statement made available to The PUNCH by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, on Sunday.
Adams said the Fulani warlord was arrested around 7 am on Sunday and had been handed over to the Divisional Police Office in Igbo Ora, Oyo State.
Wakili’s arrest comes barely seven days after his second-in-command, Isiaka Muhammadu, was arrested alongside four others.
