A 33-year-old woman, Ifeoma Ossai, killed her 50-year-old landlord, Monday Oladele, following a disagreement about electricity bills by grabbing his manhood and dragging him till he became unconscious.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.
Oyeyemi said men of the State Police Command arrested the suspect following a report lodged at Sango-Ota divisional headquarters.
Oyeyemi said the police were hinted by one Olaleye Taiwo, who reported that his brother, Oladele, had a disagreement with his tenant over the payment of electricity bill.
According to Oyeyemi in the process of disagreement, the 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, CSP Saleh Dahiru, quickly led his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested and taken to custody for investigation.
“On interrogation, the suspect claimed that the deceased asked her to pay for the electricity bill, but she insisted that until water is directly connected to her apartment as promised by the landlord before she packed in, she will not pay the electricity or any other utility bill.
“This led to a scuffle between them consequent upon which the suspect 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 doctor on duty.
“The corpse has been deposited at the hospital mortuary for postmortem examination.”
The PPRO, however, said the Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
