A middle-aged man, simply identified as Dekunle, on Sunday afternoon, killed his grandparents, Pa Busari Ogundeji, 140 and Madam Olalonpe, 120, at N4/204, Yemetu, Adeoyo, Ibadan, Oyo State.
According to an eyewitness, the entire neighbourhood was alerted to the happening at the house when another old woman, identified simply as Iya Eleko, who watched as Madam Olalonpe was being butchered, raised the alarm.
The alarm from Iya Eleko drew the attention of residents, including Pa Ogundeji, who, on getting to the scene, was overpowered by Dekunle and was thereafter macheted to death.
“I’m one of those who helped pack the corpses after the incident. Mama sustained several cuts on her body. He also hit grandpa on the chest, head and leg. They could not have survived the incident,” the eyewitness said.
Iya Eleko also had her arm injured in the process, while the corpses had been deposited at the mortuary of the state hospital, Yemetu, Ibadan.
Men of the state police command from Yemetu divisional police station, after the incident, arrested Dekunle, who was said to have also killed his parents few years ago.
