The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 33-year-old man, Segun Ogunlusi, for allegedly killing his 60-year-old mother, Abimbola Ogunlusi, and later burying her in a soakaway.
It was gathered that the incident occurred on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, on Oketunde Street, Molatori, Ogijo, in the Sagamu Local Government Area of the state.
The suspect was said to have been arrested following a report from his younger sister, Yetunde Ogunlusi.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Yetunde had reported to the police that she left their mother at home when she was going to work on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.
The spokesman for the police added that when the complainant got back home at about 7.15pm, she could not find her mother.
Oyeyemi said, “She further stated that when she inquired from her elder brother, Segun, who was at home with their mother, the explanation given by her brother was not satisfactory enough.
“Based on her report, the Divisional Police Officer, Ogijo Division, Ahmed Tijani, led a team of policemen to the house situated on Oketunde Street, Molatori, Ogijo, and the suspect was promptly arrested.”
Oyeyemi said during investigation, the police discovered that the Segun stabbed his mother to death and hurriedly buried her in a soakaway very close to the house.
“The reason for his action is still under investigation,” Oyeyemi added.
The PPRO said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had directed that the case be transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Eleweran , Abeokuta.
A shocking story of alleged medical malpractice is coming out of a hospital in the southern Thai town of Pattalung.
Last Wednesday, October 26th, a 17 year old girl named only as Poo – went in to have a baby at the hospital that was not named. The duty doctor pulled the baby out but its head broke off.
The relatives waited nervously outside the delivery room for a long time. Eventually they were told to take the expectant mother to another hospital. No explanation was given by the duty doctor.
The family took her to another hospital where a suction machine was used. The doctor there discovered that only the head of the baby was in the mothers womb. The body was missing.
Shocked relatives went back to the original hospital to find out what happened. Later it emerged that the duty doctor at the original hospital had pulled the baby out but had decapitated it in the process but said nothing to the relatives.
Daily News further discovered that following the delivery, a public health official had offered the family 400,000 baht in compensation.
The elder sister of the mother posted pictures of the head of the baby on Facebook along with a message saying that they were absolutely shocked, adding that there is no way would they accept compensation without the hospital and doctor accepting responsibility.
The sister said that people went online to say that she was a liar and threats were made to her. She told daily News: “Who in hell would lie about such a thing?”
Relatives of the mother, who is currently recovering from the ordeal in the second hospital, that also was not named, have gone to the government’s Damrongtham watchdog group to seek justice.
Meanwhile the local health chief Dr Thanit Sermkaek ordered an investigation into the matter as the hospital said such a thing had never happened before.
Daily News further reported that the doctor who allegedly decapitated the baby had gone on leave.
Relatives said that the baby had been described as normal before the mother went into labour. The torso has been retrieved and the baby sewn back together. Relatives have refused to to take the body for cremation until the matter is sorted out to everyone’s satisfaction.
