Gbenga Fadeyi, the Public Relation officer of the Oyo State Police Command in his words said “ I can confirm that there was arrest of the owner of the shrine where many were recovered . But, some people came later to the police station to say they were the ones who gave their children to the owner of the shrine, who they also claimed to be a spiritualist.
“In fact, some of those recovered from the shrine had issues, some behave like drug addicts, some like mentally challenged and so on. But what the police wants to do is to embark on thorough investigation into the matter and come up a report”.
