How a Father of 5 was beaten to death In Ibadan by Landlord’s sons

A 40 year old Father of five, Mumini Muritala, who lived at Omilabu Area of
Odinjo, was beaten to death on Friday night, following a
quarrel between him and his landlord’s son, Yusuf Adegbayi.

Wife of the deceased, Mrs Shakirat Muritala,
who spoke with Sunday Tribune at a nearby hospital, said that she had
just sent her daughter, Barakat, out to buy her food, when the
landlord’s sons, Yusuf and his brother, Habeeb Adegbayi, locked the main
door to the house around 9.pm, an action which later caused uproar
between her and the landlord’s sons.

“When my husband and
daughter came back home, Yusuf and Habeeb went inside their rooms, but
my husband went to them to enquire why they locked the door so quickly.

“This
resulted in a heated argument and Yusuf slapped my husband. My husband
wanted to retaliate, but the two boys pounced on him and beat him blue
abd black.

“Later, Yusuf came back and hit my husband with an
occultic ring he said he would use on him. Suddenly, my husband turned
around and fell on the ground. We rushed him to the hospital, but he
later gave up,” the wife said.

However, when the Police Public
Relations Officer (PPRO) of Oyo State was contacted, he told Sunday
Tribune that the suspect had fled, but efforts were ongoing to nab him,
while his father, the landlord, was in police custody at the Idi Aro
police station, from where the case would be transferred to the State
Criminial and Intelligence Department for discrete investigation.

He, however, used the opportunity to warn those who would like to engage in criminal acts to desist henceforth.
