According to Mr. Adegbusuyi, others that were reported missing include their two Hausa Security guards from their residents at Ojomo Akintan Estate, Olu FOAM Ilesha/Owo expressway Akure

On receipt of this report, he said, detectives from the Command swung into action and one Ayuba Idris Aged 20 years that happened to be one of their security guards was arrested in Kano State on 16th May, 2019.
He further disclosed that the handset of the missing person and his suits were recovered from him, and upon interrogation, he confessed that he and the second security guard named Taisu Abubakar knew where the two missing persons could be located.
He thereafter led detectives to a building at Ojomo Akintan Estate, Olu foam, Ilesha/Owo expressway Akure, Ondo State where the decomposed bodies of Kwakye Kwaku Richard and Kwakye Tope earlier declared missing were found.
The CP said, his men later evacuated the decomposed bodies and deposited them at the State Hospital Mortuary, Akure for autopsy.

Upon interrogation, they also confessed to the murder of the victims which the suspects and initially said that they killed the 71 year old Kwakye Kwaku Richard who was their employer because he refused to pay their three (3) months’ salary arrears.
They however later recanted their claim by admitting that the deceased did not owe them any salary.
They said that they also decided to kill the daughter on the same day in order to cover their track since she saw them the day they killed her father.
