Young Man Arrested For Punching Cigarette Seller To Death Over N50 Change In Ogun

The command spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Monday, said that the deceased was punched to death at his father’s shop because he refused to give the suspect his N50 change.

Oyeyemi said, “The suspect was arrested on the 5th of December 2021, following a report lodged at Idiroko divisional headquarters by the father of the deceased, one Adamu Abubakar, who reported that the suspect came to his shop at Ajegunle area of Idiroko at about 2 pm to buy cigarettes and his son Mukaila Adamu attended to him.

“He stated further that at about 10 p.m., the suspect came back and demanded for N50 balance. This led to an argument between him and his son.

In the course of the argument, the suspect descended heavily on his son Mukaila Adamu with fist blow, consequent upon which his son collapsed and was rushed to hospital where he was confirmed dead.”

Mr Oyeyemi said after the report was lodged, the Divisional Police Officer of Idiroko division, Shadrach Oriloye, mobilized his men to the scene, where the suspect was arrested.

“The corpse of the deceased has been deposited at mortuary for autopsy,” Mr Oyeyemi added.

Meanwhile, the commissioner of police in the state, Lanre Bankole, has directed the transfer of the suspect to homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a 24-year-old man was arrested for allegedly beating his 30-year-old girlfriend to death because she denied him sex in Oyo State.
