In Ekiti: How tenant raped, killed landlady

The police in Ekiti state have arrested a 39-year-old man, Tunmise Abraham, who allegedly killed her landlady, Mrs Bukola Olanrewaju after raping her to death in Ado Ekiti.

The 39-year-old Tailor and mother of three was killed last week Thursday by Tunmise, who hailed from Ikole Ekiti.

The command also arrested two serial rapists, Babalola Olaniyo and Olupinla Dotun, who raped a girl at Olorunda area of Ado Ekiti metropolis last week.

The Command’s police Commissioner, Mr Asuquo Amba, said Tunmise was arrested at a church in Akure, Ondo State capital after linking up with the family.

The CP said all the suspects will be prosecuted to serve as deterrent to others.

Confessing that he actually committed the offence, Tunmise said he did it out of provocation.

Tunmise said the deceased had allegedly provoked her over disagreement on house rent with the husband of the woman, Mr. Raphael Olanrewaju, an indigene of Igogo Ekiti from Moba local government.

He denied the accusation that he raped the landlady to death ,explaining that he only hit her on the head with a big stick before making efforts to tie her hands to make her weak during a fisticuff.

The deceased’s husband, Mr Raphael Olanrewaju, said the disagreement he had with the suspect had been resolved when his family paid a sum of N23,000 house rent, comprising the new and backlog of debt he owed.(Dailypost)
