A man has been arrested for beating his girlfriend to death over a minor disagreement.
Ahmed Jimoh, a 27-year-old man, will be ruing his misfortune after he was remanded by an Abeokuta Magistrates’ Court for allegedly beating his girlfriend, Omoyeni Oluga, 18, to death during a minor misunderstanding.
The incident happened at Oke-Itoku in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
