Policemen attached to Isheri Division in Lagos have arrested a woman, who allegedly beat her 15-year-old brother-in-law to death, for stealing N50.
The incident, which occurred about 3 p.m, yesterday, at 3 Amosu Street, off Community Road, Ijegun-Igando, reportedly sent some of the residents into hiding for fear of being arrested by the police.
Eyewitnesses said occupants of 3, Amosu Street were attracted by the lad’s shout for help. One of them who reportedly went to rescue the victim was said to have been taken aback on noticing his still position on the floor.
Apprehension set in after several attempt to wake him up failed, following which the police were contacted. A resident who spoke on condition of anonymity explained that , “ we learnt that Seubuo ( deceased) was hungry because he had not eaten all day.
He was therefore tempted to steal N50 which he used to buy sausage. But while eating it, his sister-in-law, Mrs Ayinhongbe stumbled on him and when she discovered he stole the money, she descended on him. Nobody can tell what she used on him”
Policemen at Isheri division could not offer any explanation when contacted as they claimed the case just arrived .
