Native doctor arrested for macheting his neighbor to death over allegation of theft in Ogun State


The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a native doctor, identified as Idowu Talabi, for allegedly killing his 30-year-old co-tenant, Isau Oluwatobiloba, in Ikenne LGA of the state.

He was arrested on Sunday, November 27, following a report lodged at the Ikenne Division by the victim’s wife who reported that she returned from a Church vigil at about 6 am to find the lifeless body of her husband in a pool of his blood.

It was gathered that the man was macheted to death while sleeping at home.

The command’s image maker, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, November 29, said police discovered that there was no break-in at the scene and nothing was removed from the room where the victim was killed.

“This discovery pointed to the fact that the killing was carried out by an insider, hence all the occupants of the house were invited to the station for interrogation,” he said.

According to him, Idowu Talabi confessed after a thorough investigation, that he macheted the deceased to death because the victim was fond of accusing him of stealing.
