Men of Ogun state police command have arrested one Okwudili Okoro for matcheted to death his master who was also his elder brother one Azuibike Okoro and his wife Jacinta Okoro.
The suspect was arrested following a report by one Joseph Nwagu who reported at Sango Division that Azuibike and his wife have been hacked to death by the suspect and one Kenneth who came all the way from Sappn in Abeokuta to commit the heinous crime.
Upon his report, the DPO Sango Division SP Nasirudeen Oyedele led detectives to the scene where the suspect was arrested but his accomplice escaped.
On interrogation, the Ebonyi state born suspect claimed to have served his deceased elder brother for good three years, and when it was time for him to be settled, his brother kept on posting him from time to time.
He further stated that when he realized that his brother is not ready to settle him, he contracted one Kenneth who is now on the run and they both bought two cutlasses, sharpened it to the edges and headed to his deceased elder brother’s house in Ijako.
On getting there, they met the deceased eating with his wife and before he can utter a word, they descended heavily on them with the Sharp cutlasses and matcheted them to death.
The two corpses have been taken to the general hospital Ota Mortuary for post mortem examination.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police CP Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation.
He equally directed that the escaped accomplice of the suspect be hunted for and brought to book within the shortest possible time.
The CP therefore appealed to residents of the state not to take any threat to their lives lightly by reporting such to the police no matter who is involved.
