A 45-year-old man, Ademuyiwa Adelogba, was on Wednesday night allegedly beaten to death by his in-laws in Ifira Akoko, Akoko South East Local Government Area of Ondo State, over a domestic disagreement with his wife.

Adelogba was said to have been lynched and beaten to death by his in-laws after he was alleged to have beaten his wife, Itunnu Adelogba, to coma after challenging him on his plan to marry another wife.

According to a source, the deceased who was a native doctor informed his wife who he married some few months ago, from her former husband, of his intention to marry another wife.

He said Itunu objected to the moves by her husband to marry another wife and an argument ensued between the couple, leading to a serious scuffle while the wife was said to have fainted and rushed to a nearby hospital in the town.

He, however, said that the family and siblings of the deceased wife invaded Ademuyiwa’s home, beating him blue-black with sticks and cudgel and gave up in the process.

The source explained that this led to serious tension within the town as the family of the deceased threatened reprisal attack to revenge the death of their son after moving his corpse to the mortuary in Ipe Akoko.

He said some houses were razed by the warring face turns during the attack while some members of the two families ran away from the town for safety.

This led to the invitation of the men of the State Police Command in the area but said no arrest was made over the death of Ademuyiwa as the in-laws were said to have fled the community.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Femi Joseph, who confirmed the incident said one person has been arrested in connection with the killing

He said the principal suspect, Adeola Adegboyega, has been arrested and transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for investigation

He said ” this is a clear case of murder and one person has been arrested over the death of the man. Thanks, the suspect has been brought to the State Criminal Investigation Department in Akure ”

“Some of our members have been dispatched to the community to avert looming reprisal attack and also to maintain peace in the area”
