Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 48-year-old butcher for alleged complicity in the death of his 50-year-old woman whose corpse was found by the roadside at Aro area of Abeokuta.

Spokesman of the command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Monday, said that the suspect was arrested following information received at Lafenwa Divisional Headquarters that the corpse of a certain woman was seen lying by the roadside at Aro area, Abeokuta.

Upon receiving the information, the DPO of divisional headquarters dispatched his men to the scene; where the corpse was recovered and deposited at a mortuary.

Oyeyemi, said the case was subsequently transferred to the State Criminal Investigations and Intelligence Department on the order of the Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, for discreet investigation.

Oyeyemi, further narrated that the CSP Femi Olabode-led homicide section embarked on technical and intelligence-based investigation to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of the woman.

Continuing, he said, “The investigation eventually led the team to Obada Oko area, where the suspect resides and he was arrested.

“Upon interrogation, the suspect first denied knowing the deceased.

“However, when the evidence linking him with the deceased; which had been at the disposal of the policemen before his arrest, was tabled before him; he was left with no other alternative than to confess.

“In his confession, he told the investigators that he had been dating the deceased since last year; that he invited her to his house on October 31 to pass the night with him; since his wife was not at home.

“He said it was around 3am that the deceased started showing signs of sickness after they had sex together; adding that before he could do anything, she had given up the ghost. He stated further that he took the corpse in his car and drove it to Aro area where he dumped her.

“When asked why he behaved in such an inhuman manner, he said he did so out of fear,”
