Tragedy struck in the Sagamu local government area of Ogun state on Tuesday as a man was accused of killing his mother and burying her in a soakaway.

Segun Ogunlusi, 33, reportedly stabbed his mother, Abimbola Ogunlusi, 60, to death and buried her in a soakaway when his younger sister, Yetunde Ogunlusi, left both of them alone at home.

The incident which occured  on Oketunde Street, Molatori, Ogijo, in the Sagamu Local Government Area of the state, led to the arrest of  Segun by men of the Ogun state police command.

The suspect was said to have been arrested following a report from his younger sister.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told journalists that Yetunde had reported to the police that she left their mother at home when she was going to work on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.

Yetunde said when the complainant got back home at about 7.15pm, she could not find her mother.

“She further stated that when she inquired from her elder brother, Segun, who was at home with their mother, the explanation given by her brother was not satisfactory enough.

“Based on her report, the Divisional Police Officer, Ogijo Division, Ahmed Tijani, led a team of policemen to the house situated on Oketunde Street, Molatori, Ogijo, and the suspect was promptly arrested,” the police spokesman said.

“The reason for his action is still under investigation,” he added.

The PPRO said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had directed that the case be transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Eleweran , Abeokuta.
