discovered that the deceased was macheted 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.

“After a thorough investigation, Idowu Talabi, who claimed to be a native doctor confessed been the person who killed the deceased.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre S. Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the Homicide section of the State criminal investigation department for further investigation and prosecution.”
