Oyo State police command said it has arrested 10 madmen in connection with the horror den in Soka area of Ibadan, where scores of decomposing bodies were recovered last Saturday.

The police had said on Thursday that at least eight people in connection with the death camp have been arrested but declined to release more details of their identities and places of arrest.

It, however, said that some mad persons were burnt to death by angry youths who suspected that they were feigning mental sickness and could have a link to the operators of the camp inside the Soka forest and the multiple murders that happened there.

Some were, however, rescued from the youths by the police.

On Friday, the command’s Public Relation Officer, Olabisi Ilobanefor, told our correspondent that the attack had stopped and that people have handed over some madmen suspected to have connections with the camp. They were also suspected of feigning madness.

She said, “The people of Ibadan have started cooperating with the police. They no longer attack mad people on the streets. We have about 10 people with supposed mental illnesses brought to us by the people. We have appealed to them that if they have useful information, they should contact security agents instead of taking the law into their hands. The police command is happy for their response.”

At the Adeoyo State Hospital where the eight victims rescued from the camp are receiving treatment, scores of people were still seen on Friday looking for their missing relatives. They came with photographs of their missing persons but the hospital management has insisted that the photographs would not be enough to prove identity. A member of staff at the hospital, who preferred anonymity because he was not authorised to give official information on the issue, told our correspondent that police report was vital document proof.

“People have been coming here with pictures but they need police report that reveals that they actually lost relatives. The report must date back to the time when they reported the case to the police,” he said.
