An oracle has exposed a university undergraduate, Mr Olusoji Thompson, for allegedly killing his octogenarian father in Idepe in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The octogenarian, Chief Clifford Olumekun, was found dead with blood stain in his apartment in Idepe in the local government.
Not satisfied that the old man’s death was natural, the family consulted a popular oracle in the town and it was the deity that arrested the suspected killer before the family handed him over to the police. The High Chief of Idepe was 86 when he was allegedly gruesomely murdered by his son.
The dastardly act, the Police which said their men have arrested a suspected murderer, was carried out at the deceased’s residence at No 1, Okeraye Street, Idepe in Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, who disclosed the incident to reporters yesterday, said the suspect had been detained at the State Criminal Investigative Department of the command for further investigation.
He said the reason the suspect got involved in such an act was yet unknown at the time of this report but insisted that he (suspect) was still under interrogation. He said, ” The incident happened on January 2, and we have arrested the suspect.
We are still interrogating him to know why he carried out such an act.” Joseph said that after the police’s investigation, the suspect would be charged to court. But a family source narrated that immediately after Olusoji allegedly killed his father, he allegedly picked the deceased’s lifeless body, wrapped it with a cloth and cleaned the blood stains in the room so as not to give room for suspicion that the deceased was murdered.
Olusoji was alleged to have fled the town immediately after the committing the crime. Family source said: “When the family members got into the room they noticed that blood stains that were carelessly cleaned were also on the floor of the room.
“They also found out that blood stains that were supposed to be on the deceased’s body had been carefully cleaned and his corpse wrapped in a big cloth as if he died naturally.”
The source added that the family immediately consulted the oracle to expose the killer but the suspect who had earlier allegedly fled the town showed up and confessed to the crime. He was later handed over to the police.
