Ondo police arrest 16-year-old girl for murder
A 16-year-old girl identified as Opeyemi Adudu, has been arrested by the police over the death of a 52-year-old woman, Medinat Aliu, in Akure, Ondo state’s capital.
It was alleged that the suspect pushed the victim to death, following an argument at their residence located at No 107, Isolo road in Akure South local government area of Ondo state.
An eyewitness who spoke to Vanguard said;
”On the fateful day, the suspect who lives in a ‘face me I face you’ apartment, went to the open air bathroom to have her bath, and after she was done, she went to get water from a nearby well.
“While fetching water from the well, water from her wet body was said to be dripping into the well, which made the deceased caution her to cover her hair as she was fetching from a public well.
” When the deceased tried to ensure that the girl moved away from the well, she pushed the woman away. The woman reportedly hit her head on the floor and died instantly.”
The unfortunate incident caused a commotion, as other tenants in the house took to their heels to avoid police matters.
Some elderly persons who could not abandon their houses later informed the police who came to effect the arrest of the suspect. The police later deposited the corpse of the woman at the state hospital mortuary.
