A 21-year-old 300 level student of Redeemer’s University, Tolani Ajayi, has been arrested by the Ogun state Police Command for killing his 60-year-old father, Mr. Charles Ajayi, (SAN) at the Redemption camp, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on the 3rd of July.
Confirming the report, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, in a statement released today, said that the suspect did not only kill his father but shared his body into a box, and dumped it in a nearby bush at Canaan Land Street.
Read statement below:
“The DPO, Redemption Camp, SP Olaiya Martins, had led a team of detectives and some members of the community, who noticed the strange attitude of the suspect while dumping a box, to the point, where the body of the late SAN was dumped.
“They thereafter traced the ground marks of the dragged box from where the suspect dumped the dad’s corpse to the house of the Senior Advocate of Nigeria,where they met the suspect in a relaxed mood in the house. Upon interrogation, the suspect earlier lied that his dad had gone on evangelism before he eventually confessed to the crime when he was taken to the Redemption Camp Divisional Headquarters.
“He stated further that the problem arose when his father confronted him for not responding to all the prayer points he(the deceased) was raising, claiming that the father slapped him. He said he went mad and went straight to the kitchen to pick up a knife to stab him and later a cutlass to cut his throat and killed him.”
