Ogun State men of Police Command have arrested a man who allegedly severed the head and wrists of a 72-year-old woman, identified as Funmilayo Shada in Ogun Waterside, Ogun State..
The suspect, Adeoye Ikugbayigbe, told the police that he committed the act because he had been having a running battle with the deceased over a parcel of land.
Oyeyemi explained that “the arrest followed a report by the son of the deceased, one Ekundayo Shada, who complained at Abigi Divisional Headquarters that while he was on his way to the farm to meet his mother, he came across Adeoye Ikugbayigbe on the road holding a polythene bag. “But as soon as he sighted the suspect, the suspect dropped the bag and ran into the bush. This aroused his suspicion and he quickly ran to check on his mother, but could not find her.
“He later came back to check the bag dropped by the suspect, only for him to discover his mother’s head and her wrist in the bag. “He quickly reported the case to police and the DPO of Abigi Division, SP Komolafe Omoniyi, led detectives to the scene, combed the surrounding bushes and finally got the suspect arrested.
