The Ogun State Police Command says it has arrested a landlord in Onipanu, Ota,  in the Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state, Sunday Omosule, for alleged killing a son of one of his tenants with a pestle.

The deceased was four-year-old Joseph Akpan.

According to a report by The Punch, the landlord had allegedly gone berserk and started chasing his tenants with the pestle until he caught up victim’s mother.

 

The state Police Public Relations Officer,  Abimbola Oyeyemi,  said as he caught with the mother who was carrying the boy, he hit the mother in the hand and hit the baby on the head with the pestle.

He said, “The landlord was arrested following a distress call to the police at Onipanu division.”

Oyeyemi said the Divisional Police Officer, Onipanu division, Sangobiyi Johnson, led his men to the scene where the suspect was arrested.

On interrogation, he said the suspect claimed to be under spiritual attacks.

Oyeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said, “The mother of the deceased, who sustained injury in the attack, has been taken to a hospital where she is responding to treatment.

 

The remains of the victim have been deposited in a mortuary.”
