Father and Son Arrested for Fatally Beating Neighbour’s Wife in Ogun State

The Ogun State Police Command has apprehended a 54-year-old man identified as Chizoke Obiadada, along with his 17-year-old son, Micheal, following their alleged involvement in the death of their neighbour’s wife, Tope Owoade.

According to a statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Omolola Odutola, the tragic incident occurred on Thursday, March 28, 2024. Obiadada and his son reportedly engaged the deceased in a physical altercation after she objected to them sitting on a table she used for selling cow skin, also known as ponmo.

The suspects were arrested after the husband of the deceased, Isiaka Owoade, reported the incident to the police at the Ogijo divisional office.

In a statement issued by the police spokesperson, it was revealed that Isiaka Owoade recounted how, upon returning from a journey, his late wife informed him that on the previous day, Chizoke Obiadada and his son, Micheal Obiadada, had attacked her with multiple blows, resulting in severe injuries.

The altercation allegedly escalated when Tope Owoade cautioned the duo against sitting on her work table.

As a result of the assault, Tope sustained fatal injuries, including severe bleeding from her womb and private parts.

Despite being rushed to Main Frame Private Hospital and Kunle Hospital, Atan Agowa, she was tragically rejected for treatment. She eventually succumbed to her injuries while being transported to a government hospital.

Upon receiving the report, the Ogijo Divisional Police Officer promptly ordered the arrest of the suspects, who are currently undergoing preliminary investigations. The case is set to be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further scrutiny.

Efforts are underway to deposit the deceased at Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, morgue for post-mortem examination.
