The Ogun State Police Command has
arrested a 21-year-old undergraduate, Tolani
Ajayi, of Redeemers University along the
Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, for allegedly
killing his father, Mr. Charles Ajayi, a Senior
Advocate of Nigeria.
The incident, according to the police,
occurred on Tuesday, July 3, at their
residence on Canaanland Street within the
Redeemed Christian Church of God’s
Redemption Camp.
Tolani was said to have slaughtered his
father with a knife and later butchered him
with a cutlass.
It was learnt that Tolani afterwards allegedly
packed his father’s remains in a box and
dragged them into the bush within the camp.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr.
Muyiwa Adejobi, a Deputy Superintendent of
Police, said the police later recovered the
remains of the 60-year-old lawyer in a bush
along Canaanland Street.
He said, “The policemen who noticed the
ground mark created by the box as Tolani
dragged it, followed this lead which led them
to the strange discovery.”
He said Tolani, a 300-level undergraduate in
the Department of History and International
Relations, was arrested the same day in his
late father’s residence after the discovery of
the corpse and police preliminary findings.
Adejobi added that the Divisional Police
Officer of the Redemption Camp Police
Station, Olaiya Martins, a Superintendent of
Police, had led a team of detectives and
some members of the community who
noticed the strange attitude of the suspect
while dumping the box.
He said, “They traced the ground marks
made by the box to the point where the body
of the SAN was dumped and thereafter traced
the mark to the house of the deceased.
“When the police got to deceased’s house,
the suspect was in a relaxed mood.
“When interrogated, the suspect earlier lied
that his dad had gone on evangelism, but he
eventually confessed to the crime when he
was taken to the Redemption Camp
Divisional headquarters.”
The suspect was said to have told policemen
that problem arose when his late father
confronted him for not responding to all the
prayer points he (the deceased) was raising,
adding that he (father) later slapped him.

the kitchen and picked up a knife, with which

the knife and cutlass used in committing the
alleged crime.
