A middle-aged man, simply identified as Dekunle, on Sunday afternoon, killed his grandparents, Pa Busari Ogundeji, 140 and Madam Olalonpe, 120, at N4/204, Yemetu, Adeoyo, Ibadan, Oyo State.
According to an eyewitness, the entire neighbourhood was alerted to the
happening at the house when another old woman, identified simply as Iya Eleko,
who watched as Madam Olalonpe was being butchered, raised the alarm.
The alarm from Iya Eleko drew the attention of residents, including Pa
Ogundeji, who, on getting to the scene, was overpowered by Dekunle and was
thereafter macheted to death.
“I’m one of those who helped pack the corpses after the incident. Mama
sustained several cuts on her body. He also hit grandpa on the chest, head and
leg. They could not have survived the incident,” the eyewitness said.
Iya Eleko also had her arm injured in the process, while the corpses had been
deposited at the mortuary of the state hospital, Yemetu, Ibadan.
Men of the state police command from Yemetu divisional police station, after
the incident, arrested Dekunle, who was said to have also killed his parents few
