A single mother has allegedly killed her landlord by dragging his testicle over electricity bill in Ota, Ogun State.
The suspect, Ifeoma Ossia, 34, who is being interrogated by the Ogun State Police Command, claimed that the deceased asked her to pay for electricity bill, but she insisted that until water was directly connected to her apartment as promised by the landlord before she packed in, she would not pay the electricity or any other utility bill.
The police said: “This led to a scuffle between them, consequent upon which she grabbed the manhood of the deceased and dragged him with it. The deceased subsequently slumped, and he was rushed to the hospital, but was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty.”
The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, said: “On Saturday, March 11, 2023, we arrested a 33-year-old woman, Ifeoma Ossai, for killing her 50-year-old landlord, Monday Surulere Oladele, over a minor disagreement.
The suspect was arrested following a report lodged at the Sango Ota Divisional Headquarters by one Olaleye Taiwo, who reported that his brother, Monday Oladele, had a disagreement with his tenant over the payment of electricity bill, and in the process, the said tenant grabbed the manhood of the deceased and dragged him with it.
“Consequently, the landlord fell unconscious on the ground and he was rushed to the General Hospital, Ota, where the doctor on duty confirmed him dead.
Upon the report, the DPO Sango Ota division, Saleh Dahiru, quickly led his detectives to the scene, where the suspect was promptly arrested and taken to custody for investigation.
The deceased’s body has been deposited at the hospital mortuary for postmortem examination.”
Meanwhile, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Frank Mba, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation Departments (SCID) for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
