It was gathered that the arrest of the three followed a tip-off by a neighbour, who raised a suspicion on the reckless and flamboyant lifestyle of the suspects even though they had no known reasonable source of income.

The neighnour who also lives at Oginni’s residence within the Fortune Estate, Ologuneru Olonde area of Ibadan, was said to have petitioned the EFCC.

This led to the arrest of the Oginni, his brother-in-law, Alabi Okikiola, and his friend, Jonas Okwuwe.
