A 29-ear-old old man, Owolabi Folorunso Adewale, has been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for culpable homicide.
The arrest of the suspect followed a distress call received by the DPO Ago-Iwoye Division, CSP Ade Adedoyin, that a middle aged man has butchered his aunty, Ebunola Aroboto, to death at Maraisa Lane Igan road Ago-Iwoye.
The DPO quickly led his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested and the cutlass which he used to wreck the havoc was also recovered.
On interrogation, the suspect admitted killing the old woman with matchet claiming that he has an inclination that the woman was responsible for most of his spiritual problems. He stated further he is a regular player of Baba Ijebu lotto and that whenever he is sure of wining, the deceased who was his father’s elder sister, would use her supernatural power to change the wining number.
The body of the deceased has been deposited at Ijebu-Ode General Hospital mortuary for post mortem examination.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police, State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Wale Abass to take over the case and ensure diligent prosecution of the suspect.
