The Ondo State Police Command on Monday arrested Deji Adenuga, the man who allegedly killed eight family members after setting ablaze their house at Igbodigo, in the Okitipupa area.
He reportedly committed the act after his estranged lover, Titi Sanumi, who was a member of the family, ended their relationship and the man felt cheated.
His arrest came a week after the suspect escaped after allegedly committing the crime.
Adenuga, last Tuesday allegedly set the members of his estrange lover’s family ablaze in a one room apartment on Adetuwo Street in the town. He was alleged to have carried out the act while the family slept around 2am.
Five members of the family died on the spot, while the remaining three members gave up the ghost at a hospital they were taken to for treatment.
A source said the suspect, an ex-convict, was arrested in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, and had been handed over to the Ondo State Police Command.
