A  72-year-old woman, Funmilayo Shada, was reportedly beheaded by a 22-year-old man,  Adeoye Ikugbayigbe, following a land dispute. Adeoye was arrested by Officers of the Ogun State Police Command, after the deceased’s son Ekundayo Shada laid a complaint at the Abigi Divisional Headquarters on Monday, after seeing the suspect with a polythene bag when he went to meet his mum at their farm.

The  Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer and  Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Abimbola Oyeyemi, alleged that the suspect dropped the polythene bag and ran, when he saw the deceased's son.

“As soon as Ikugbayigbe sighted him, he dropped the bag and ran into the bush. This aroused Ekundayo’s suspicion and he quickly ran to check his mother but could not find her. He later came back to check the bag dropped by the suspect only for him to discover his mother’s severed head and her wrist in the said bag.

“He quickly reported the case to the police and the DPO Abigi Division, SP Komolafe Omoniyi led detective to the scene, combed the surrounding bush and finally got the suspect arrested.

“On interrogation, he confessed to the commission of the crime claiming that he has been having a running battle with the deceased over a portion of land. The severed head and the remains of the deceased have been deposited in the mortuary while the cutlass he used has also been recovered.

“The Commissioner of Police (CP) Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered that the suspect be transferred to Homicide section of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligent Department (SCIID) for further investigation” he said.
