The Nigerian Police have revealed that popular Ibadan-based broadcaster, Oriyomi Hamzat, was arrested in Ibadan by its personnel.

A statement signed by Muyiwa Adejobi, Force Public Relations Officer and obtained by AllNews Nigeria indicated that the ace broadcaster was arrested by operatives from the Force Intelligence Bureau in connection with a case of Cyber Bullying under investigation. 

Adejobi also disclosed that Oriyomi's arrest was sequel to his refusal to honour Police invitation severally, which prompted the police to secure a warrant for his arrest. 

"We are looking into the petition written against him on his violation of the Cyber Crime Act, 2015, and necessary action will be taken to do justice in the matter."

Oriyomi Hamzat was whisked away from Ibadan by the Nigerian Police personnel and many commentators were of the opinion that his arrest was connected to the murder of Timothy Adegoke, the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife postgraduate student who died in Hilton Hotel, Ile-Ife in November, 2021.
