Rasak Adekoya, 37, is now cooling his heels in police net after allegedly beating his 7-year-old son, Wariz Adekoya, 10, to death for reportedly stealing from him at his home in Ogun State.
According to the neighbours of the suspect, they were infuriated that Rasak was always assaulting his child as old and new scars were seen all over the body of the deceased 10-year-old.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) and the Ogun State police command’s spokesman, revealed the corpse of Wariz had been deposited at a mortuary in the state.
“The corpse has been deposited at St. Joseph Catholic Hospital Mortuary, Oke-Agbo, Ijebu-Igbo for autopsy.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered that the suspect be transferred to Homicide Section of the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Eleweran, for further investigation.
As soon as investigation is concluded, the suspect would be arraigned in court.”
