The command’s Spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola, made this known during the parade of criminal suspects at the state police headquarters in Osogbo on Tuesday.

She said: “On April 17, at about 11:30 a.m, a complainant from Ogbere Oloba area of Ibadan reported at a police station that his father, one Adegun Yusuf, 78, the Imam of Alaguntan village in Orile-Owu, was shot dead by a hunter from the same village.

“The suspect was later arrested and he confessed to the alleged crime.

“He (the suspect) explained that he was on a hunting expedition when he saw an antelope in the bush, which he shot at with his Dane gun, but that he was surprised when he went to pick the antelope and met Baba Imam on the ground.”
