The police command in Oyo state says it has arrested 11 suspects in connection with the burning of some shops and houses along Beere-Molete Road, Ibadan.

Suspected arsonists burnt down no fewer than 20 shops and houses located on Beere-Molete Road in the early hours of Sunday.

Adekunle Ajisebutu, police public relation officer (PPRO) in the state, said the arrested 11 suspects included their leader.

He said law and order have been restored to the affected areas.

“The state Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, has directed the policemen drafted to the area to carry out intensive patrol as well as 24 hours surveillance to avoid further breakdown of law and order,” Ajisebutu said.

“The CP has directed that the 11 suspects including their ring leader be charged to court immediately after conclusion of investigations.”

The command’s spokesperson said the commissioner of police had warned hoodlums and other criminal elements in the state against wanton destruction of lives and property.

Meanwhile, the olubadan of Ibadanland, Saliu Adetunji, has summoned an emergency meeting of all family heads in the affected areas in his palace.
