A 25 year old house help identified simply as David has been arrested for attacking and beheading a 65 year old retired Chief magistrate, Vanguard reports.
Olufunmilayo Timeyin was slaughtered at her residence in Laderin estate in Obafemi-Owode LGA of Ogun State.
David allegedly scaled the fence of the late Timeyin’s bungalow, deactivated the security system inside the building and laid siege within the premises before hacking the retired magistrates to death.
David, an Igede, Benue state-born was reportedly employed two months ago and sent packing two weeks ago for allegedly stealing his boss valuables including phones and jewelries which led to his arrest and subsequently release on the boss order.
It was one of the sons of the late Chief Magistrate, Olumide, who heard the desperate cries of his mum that raised alarm and residents in-turn alerted the men of the Ogun State Vigilance Service.
The police found a naked David at the back of the house hiding inside the bush and arrested him. The corpse of the retired magistrate was later taken away to the mortuary.
Policemen from Kemta Idi-aba and Ibara cordoned off the area while detectives searched for evidence of the crime inside the house. Journalists were barred from the house.
