It was gathered that Seun Egbegbe together with his accomplice (Ayodele Oyekan) spent the weekend in detention. According to Encomium.ng, their remand order was extended on Monday, February 6 by the courts. Encomium reports that when they contacted the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, she confirmed that the suspects are still detained. She said:
“He’s still in custody. The Command got the consent of the court for his continued detention so as to allow extensive investigation since he’s an habitual suspect.”
