A 33-year-old man, Segun Ogunlusi, has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly killing his 60-year-old mother, Abimbola Ogunlusi, and burying her corpse in a soak-away pit.

Punch reports that the suspect committed the dastardly act on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, on Oketunde Street, Ogijo, in the Sagamu Local Government Area of the state and was arrested following a report lodged at the Ogijo Division by his younger sister, Yetunde.

Confirming the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the sister had reported to the police that she left their mother at home when she was going to work on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, but when she got back in the evening, the old woman was nowhere to be found.

“She (Yetunde) 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.”

It was gathered that during interrogation, the suspect confessed that he stabbed his mother to death and hurriedly buried her in a soak-away very close to the house.
