Oyo State Police Command has arrested 37-year-old commercial motorcycle rider identified as Oduola Gbenga for abducting one Mrs Bosede Jimoh, 34 and killing of her five-year-old son named, Fadeyi Opeyemi after raping the victim.
The incident occurred on December 9, 2019 at a house at Imeleke Road, Lawal Estate Area of Igboora, the headquarters of Ibarapa Central Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Gbenga was paraded by the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, CP. Shina Olukolu at the force state headquarters, Eleyele, Ibadan on Friday.
Olukolu said Gbenga carried Bosede and her son on December 8, this year, from Oja-Oba in Igboora and forcefully had unlawful carnal knowledge of her three times before day break.
“The following day, December 9, 2019, the said commercial motorcycle rider took the victim’s son to another room and beheaded him with a cutlass. He claimed to have dumped the remains at a nearby bush beside his house,” he said.
“The remaining body part was later recovered at the backyard of Oduola Gbenga’s house and deposited at the General Hospital mortuary for autopsy.”
Oduola while speaking with journalists, Gbenga narrated that he wooed the woman before he took her to his house, and he did not deny killing the boy. He said:
“I carried her and her son on my bike in Igboora. Immediately I saw them, I knew they were visitors to Igboora. They asked me to take them to their house and instead I took them to my house.”
“While on the bike, I told the woman that I liked her and I wanted her to be my wife. She agreed. So, I took her to my house. So, I had sex with her. It is true that I killed her son on the second day.
“I just killed him because I did not want any disturbance between his mother and myself. I buried his head in my shop and I put her body in a black nylon and threw it in the bush. I am a bicycle repairer and an okada man.
“I killed him so that everything will get better for me. I did not know that she would expose me. I have not killed anybody before. The boy did not offend me. It just happened like that. I did not have a wife at home. I had two wives before and they both left me. So, I wanted to take his mother as my wife”, he said.
