78 Years Old Man Arrested For Killing Elder Brother Over Land


Moshood Habibu, 78 years old man, was on the 24th of November 2021 arrested by men of Ogun state police command for hacking his 94 years old brother to death over land matter. 

DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, Ogun State police command, public relation officer said, the suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Mowe divisional headquarters by one Aminu Tajudeen, who reported that the deceased, Salisu Surakatu, was his biological father and that the suspect came to the deceased house at Kara Ewumi village Mowe, where he macheted him to death over a disagreement on land matter. 

Upon the report, the DPO Mowe division, CSP Saminu Akintunde, quickly mobilized his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested. 

On interrogation, the suspect claimed that the deceased sold a  plot from their family land and didn't give him his own share of the proceeds and that he went there that morning to demand his own share which led to a hot argument between them. 

Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect went to the deceased house armed with a cutlass, and when he got there, the deceased who was visually impaired didn't know he came with a cutlass. While the deceased was asking him to leave his house, he descended heavily on him and macheted him to death. 

Meanwhile, the commissioner of police, CP Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
