A native doctor, Idowu Talabi, has been arrested by men of Ogun state Police Command for killing his 30 years old co- tenant, Isau Oluwatobiloba.
The suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Ikenne divisional headquarters by the wife of the deceased, who reported that she returned from Church vigil at about 6:00 am only to discover the lifeless body of her husband lying in the pool of his own blood in their house at No 4, Best way Moro street Ikenne, having been machete to death by an unknown person.
According to the spokesman of the command, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, detectives from the Ikenne Divisional headquarters discovered that the deceased was machete to death while sleeping on his bed.
It was also discovered that there was no break-in at the scene and nothing was removed from the room.
“These discoveries pointed to the fact that the killing was carried out by an insider, hence all the occupants of the house were invited to the station for interrogation.
“After a thorough investigation, Idowu Talabi, who claimed to be a native doctor confessed to being the person who killed the deceased.
“When asked the reason for the dastardly act, the suspect alleged that the deceased was fond of accusing him of stealing, and that was what infuriated him to machete him to death when he discovered that the deceased was alone at home sleeping.
The cutlass he used to commit the crime has since been recovered.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the Homicide section of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and prosecution.
