Police Arrests Suspects Behind Death Of Ondo Woman

The Ondo State Police Command has arrested three persons in connection with the death of woman, Mrs Iyanuoluwa Adamolekun, in Arigidi Akoko in Akoko North-West Local Government Area of the state.

Osun Defender reports that the lifeless body of Adamolekun, a retired teacher, was discovered in her residence last week, by her grand daughter after returning from school and she raised the alarm when she found her grand mother in a pool of blood.

The suspects were simply identified as Oluwaseun, Mobarak and Rilwan. Oluwaseun is the househelp and Mobarak’s mother.

They allegedly killed late Adamolekun in her room while sleeping and who also took away her mobile telephone.

It was gathered that the police tracked the phone of the deceased, leading to the arrest of one of the suspects, who later assisted the police in arresting other accomplices.

A source said the two suspects (Mobarak and Rilwan) confessed that they scaled over the fence and not through the main gate so as not to make a noise.

“Having gained entry into the house that afternoon, they went straight to the deceased room, where she was lying on her bed after taking her bath. They confessed that they used a wooden box to shatter her head while the woman was screaming the second suspect strangulated her.”

The state police public relations officer, Mrs. Funmilayo Odunlami, who confirmed the development, said the suspects were arrested and are currently in detention.

“I can confirm their arrest and will send the details later,” the PPRO stated.
