A similar murder scene

A 46-year-old farmer, Mr Olubusayo Sunday, on Wednesday, committed suicide after beheading his wife and daughter.

A statement by the office of the Ogun State Police Command’s Public Relations said that the incident occurred at Onigbedu town in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state.

According to the command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the man stabbed himself severely and set himself ablaze at about 1.15 p.m. on the day.

He was said to have beheaded his wife, Oyewole Sunday, 40 and three-year-old daughter, Esther Sunday, for unknown reasons.

Adejobi said that police detectives attached to Ewekoro division of the command had commenced investigation into the incident.

The statement read: “The man, Mr Olubusayo, was noticed when he stabbed himself and wanted to jump into a well near his house, having set himself ablaze but was prevented and rescued by his neighbours, who later found out that he had wreaked a great havoc in his house, but he later died in the hospital.

“The wife, Oyewole Sunday, 40 years, and the daughter, Esther Sunday, three years, were beheaded by Olubusayo for reasons known to him and the three corpses have been kept at the General Hospital, Ifo, for autopsy and investigation.

“Up till this moment, no one or any member of the deceased family or neighbours could tell the police the cause of the incident, but the last statement Olubusayo made before he died, in the presence of the police detectives, suggested that there was a quarrel between him and his wife.”
