78-year-old Man Kills Brother, 94, With Cutlass Over Land Dispute In Ogun

The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 78-year-old man, Moshood Habibu, for allegedly hacking his brother, Salisu Surakatu, aged 94, to death over land matters.

Habibu was said to have stormed his brother’s house at Kara Ewumi village Mowe, Ogun State, on Wednesday after which a disagreement ensued between him and the nonagenarian over the land.

The suspect reportedly got enraged and attacked the aged man with a cutlass, killing him in the process.

The Ogun State police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident, saying Habibu was arrested by the CSP Saminu Akintunde-led team after the incident was reported at Mowe police station by Amino Tajudeen, said to be a son of the deceased.

“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,” Oyeyemi said.

The police spokesman explained that the suspect had gone to the deceased man’s house with a cutlass, but the nonagenarian, who was visually impaired, did not know he was with a cutlass.

“While the deceased was asking him to leave his house, he descended heavily on him and matcheted him to death,” the police said.

The suspect would be transferred to the homicide section of the state CIID as ordered by the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, Oyeyemi disclosed.

It read, “Available intelligence indicates plans by insurgents and criminal elements to carry out simultaneous attacks on military posts and bases in various border communities across the nation anytime from now.

“In view of the foregoing and the likelihood such attacks not limited to the military personnel only, all law enforcement and security agencies with operational bases at border communities are advised to take note of the above threat and put in place countermeasures with emphasis on personal security of operatives to frustrate the planned attack, please.”
