The Oyo State Police Command has arrested a 52-year-old woman, Mrs Bose Adegoke alongside her daughter, Mrs Yetunde Adegoke, 28, for allegedly killing a 25-year-old man in Iseyin, Iseyin Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that the suspects, who were arrested at different locations, are currently at the state Criminal Investigation Department, Iyaganku in Ibadan for interrogation.
According to Punch, the victim, (name withheld) who has been staying with his biological mother suddenly abandoned her and secretly packed his belongings to Adegoke’s house before the sad incident occurred.
“The victim and Yetunde were in love. Yetunde is a single mother with two children while the victim has none. They were in serious love and Yetunde informed her mother about the relationship and her mother agreed. They brainwashed the victim to pack into their house and he agreed,” an informed police source said.
“He had been staying with them in Ibadan for months and when they discovered that his biological mother was worried, they now arranged a room for him in their home town, Iseyin where he stayed for about five months before he suddenly fell sick and consequently gave up.
“Meanwhile, when the mother became worried, she reported the case to Gbagi Police station, Egbeda Division in Ibadan and the police were able to trace him to Yetunde’s mother’s in Ibadan but he told the police that he didn’t want to stay with his mother anymore. This prompted Yetunde and her mother to relocate him to their home (Iseyin) and get him casual work. A few weeks later, Yetunde’s mother who is a civil servant also transferred from Ibadan to Iseyin and they were sleeping in the same room.”
The source continued;
“When he fell sick, they rushed him to a hospital in Iseyin and abandoned him there. When there was no improvement, the management of the hospital was able to reach his mother who went to Iseyin to bring him back to Ibadan for medical attention. He eventually gave up a few days later.” the source added.
