Oyo - The Police Command in Oyo State says it has arrested 10 persons  in connection with the abduction of Titilayo, wife of retired Brig.-Gen. Oluwole Rotimi.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Ayodele Lanade, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Wednesday.

``As we speak, we have arrested a total number of 10 persons. Five of them were arrested on Dec 11, while the other five were arrested on Wednesday.

``I can assure you that serious investigations are going on by both the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS),” he said.

When asked if any member of staff of the victim was among those arrested, Lanade said that such information could not be presently divulged.
