A yet to be indentified person has killed a five-year old boy simply known as Mujeeb in the Tose area of Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Few weeks ago, three females, Grace Oshiagwu, Barakat Bello, and Azeezat Shomuyiwa, were killed by unidentified persons in the same local government area.
Recounting what happened, the mother of the deceased, Mrs Tirimisiyu, said her son went out to defecate at the back of their house when the assailants allegedly hacked him to death.
“When the rain subsided, he told his older sibling that he wanted to go and defecate. The older sibling opened the back door for him to go defecate. Had I known I would have asked him to defecate in the front of the house. Suddenly, he cried out, “Mummy, Mummy,”. His older sibling and I rushed out to the backyard but we didn’t see him initially.
“Then I checked beside the bush and found him macheted. He hadn’t die when we got there. So, people took him from my hand to take him to the hospital but he later died,” Mujeeb’s mother said
The spokesperson of the state police command, Gbenga Fadeyi, confirmed the incident and said an investigation has commenced.
