The suspects said they were angry at their late father for giving Ayodele 40 cows and gave them 10 cows each as their own inheritance.
Speaking during the week while being paraded by the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Samuel Okaula, in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, the suspects stated that they, in company of a fleeing suspect, Quadri Ayodele, killed the victims and pulled their corpses close to the residence of Ayodele to implicate him.
Our correspondent gathered that Ayodele — on the discovery of the corpses near his house — was arrested, charged to court and remanded in prison custody.
Okaula said the late woman’s husband, Kehinde Babatunde, of Igba-Iroko/Alapa village in Asa Local Government Area of the state reported that assailants had gruesomely murdered his wife and Azeez as they were hawking drugs and other items around the Gaa-Arasiko area near Alapa.
Okaula said, “On interrogation, the suspects confessed that they both conspired to commit the heinous crime in order to implicate their eldest brother, Ayodele Amadu, now in prison, who was alleged to have taken a larger portion of the property left behind by their late father. They also confirmed that their elder brother is innocent of the crime.”
