Moshood allegedly stormed the deceased house at Kara Ewumi village Mowe on Wednesday and as a disagreement erupted between him and the nonagenerian over the land, the suspect, it was learnt, gave way to fit of rage and attacked the old man with cutlass, killing him in the process.

The suspect was arrested same day on November 24 after Aminu Tajudeen, acclaimed biological son of the decesed reported the incident at the Mowe Police Division, according to Abimbola Oyeyemi, Police Spokesperson in Ogun State.

"The suspect was arrested  following a report lodged at Mowe divisional headquarters by one Aminu Tajudeen, who reported that the deceased, Salisu Surakatu, was his biological father, and that the suspect came to the deceased house at Kara Ewumi village Mowe, where he matcheted him to death over a disagreement on land matter. 

"Upon the report, the DPO Mowe division, CSP Saminu Akintunde, quickly mobilized his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested. 

"On interrogation, the suspect claimed that the deceased sold a  plot from their family land and didn't give him his own share of the proceeds, and that he went there that morning to demand for his own share which led to hot argument between them. 

"Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect went to the deceased house armed with cutlass, and when he got there, the deceased who was visually impaired didn't know he came with cutlass. While the deceased was asking him to leave his house, he descended heavily on him and matcheted him to death."

Abimbola, a Deputy Superintendent of Police(DSP), quoted the commissioner of police, CP Lanre Bankole, as having given order for the transfer of the suspect to homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
