Shodipe had been declared wanted after he escaped prison following his arrest.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State, Mr Olugbenga Fadeyi, who confirmed the development in Ibadan on Sunday, said the 19-year-old suspect was back in custody.
Residents of the area were excited with the news of the re-arrest of the suspected ritual killer, warning that he must not be allowed to escape again.
The suspect, while narrating how he escaped, said he climbed a tank stand and scaled the fence when he was taken out to take his bath.
Shodipe said this in a video posted by Oriyomi Hamzat TV.
He spoke after he was re-arrested on Sunday.
He said, “The new DPO at Mokola Police Station told a policeman, Funso, that he should take us out to have our bath. The policeman took me out and he warned me against trying to escape. I didn’t even think of escaping when he said that.
“But when I saw that he was engrossed in his discussion with a man, I climbed the tank stand and scaled the fence. It was around 7 pm when I escaped.”
