Operatives of the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Police have arrested a 23-year-old man, Dansu Asogba, for allegedly killing his aunt, Iyabo Dansu,60.
The suspect, according to a statement by the Command spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, was arrested following a report by two children of the deceased at Ipokia Divisional Headquarters.
The children claimed to have received information on the 22nd of August, 2020 about the demise of their mother who was not known to be suffering from any illness.
They stated further that since they were not suspecting any foul play, they decided to bury her without necessarily reporting to the police.
But immediately after the burial, they heard information that the suspect, who is a nephew to the deceased, was seen in her house on that fateful day, and shortly after he left, the woman was declared dead.
This rouse the suspicion of the people of the community and they threatened to carry out a traditional ritual which will expose the killer.
On hearing about the intention of the community to go spiritual about the deceased death, the suspect came out and confessed to be responsible for the woman’s death.
