Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 45-year-old man, Kolese Womiloju and his 25-year-old son, Taiwo Womiloju, over alleged killing of a Herdman, Abubakar Sidi Usman, at Gbagba Elewure village in Odeda Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects were arrested following a complaint by the elder brother of the deceased, Usman Bello, at the Odeda Divisional Headquarters, that his brother was found missing.
The duo of the father and his son, in a statement from the office of the Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confessed to the crime of hitting the victim with a charming ring and subsequently matched him to death, because of his refusal to heed to the warning that he should not graze his cattle around their farmland.
Ogun State Commissioner of Police, CP Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered that the suspects be transferred to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
He warned against jungle justice, saying those in the habit of taking laws into their hands would find themselves to blame.
