Father Of 5 Beaten To Death In Ibadan By Landlord’s Sons

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