Man Beheads Wife & Daughter, Commits Suicide

Tragedy struck on Wednesday at Onigbedu town in Ewekoro Local Government area of Ogun State when a 46-year-old farmer, Sunday Olubusayo, beheaded his wife, Oyewole and their three-year-old daughter, Esther, before committing suicide.

The police spokesman in the state, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, said no one could tell the police what could have led Olubusayo to murder his family members and commit suicide.

But he said that investigations showed that the couple had a quarrel before the incident.

He said, “After beheading his wife and daughter, Olubusayo stabbed himself, set himself ablaze and tried to jump inside a well but was prevented by neighbours.He later died in the hospital of fatal wounds he had inflicted on himself.”

Adejobi said the corpses of the deceased had been deposited at the General Hospital, Ifo, also in the state for an autopsy.

He said the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ikemefuna Okoye, had ordered investigation into the tragic incident.

Adejobi said the police had recovered blood-stained knife and machete, which were suspected to have been used in committing the crime, from the scene.

He said, “The commissioner of police has directed that the matter be transferred to the Department of Criminal Investigation, Eleweran, Abeokuta for thorough investigation.”
