12-Man Gang Storm Home Of 24-Year-Old, Murder Him In Wife, Son Presence

The incident occured in Labinkulu community in Moniya area of Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State.

According to Vanguard, the gang invaded the home of the deceased on Saturday around 9:48pm at the village and butchered him to death in the presence of his wife and three months old son.

When the aforementioned publication visited the area, the entire community was tensed as people were gathering in a group to discuss the unfortunate incident.

The deceased’s wife, Omolayo Olalere, who spoke with newsmen said, “We were together outside around 9:48pm when they suddenly invaded our house. I don’t know them and my late husband had no misunderstanding with anybody before he died.

When they came in, we quickly rushed inside the house and locked everywhere but they broke the door and destroy our windows to gain access.

Before they gained entrance, one of my senior wives who was outside was mercilessly beaten and almost killed. When they came inside, they told my husband to cooperate with them by laying down on the table in the parlour.

As he did that, they started using different weapons such as dagger, axe, knife, broken bottles, cutlasses to hit him including charms to ensure that he didn’t survive it.

After they left, we quickly rushed him to the Cureland hospital at Moniya where they later referred us to another place. But he eventually gave up the ghost yesterday. The case has been reported to the Divisional Police Station, Moniya.”

Also speaking, the father of the deceased, Jelili Olalere, said he was yet to understand what really happened because his son was a quiet person.

The 50-year old man said, “I was shocked because my son is a quiet person. I don’t know what could have prompted those guys to invade my house and destroyed many things before killing him.

They broke my doors, windows and destroyed all our Plasma Televisions. They used charms and other dangerous weapons to hit him before they left. We have reported the matter to the police at Moniya Divisional Police Station.”

Olalere added that his corpse has been deposited at morgue in Adeoyo hospital, Ring Road, Ibadan.
