According to Oyeyemi, the children had reported that they were informed on August 22 that their mother, who was not suffering from any illness had died.
Oyeyemi hinted that the children of the deceased “stated further that since they were not suspecting any foul play, they decided to bury her without necessarily reporting to the police.
“But immediately after the burial, they heard information that the suspect, who is a nephew to the deceased was seen in her house on that fateful day, and shortly after he left, the woman was declared dead.”
This, he said, intensified residents’ suspicion as they threatened to perform a traditional ritual to disclose the murderer. I killed My Aunt
Hearing the community ‘s resolve to go spiritually about the woman’s death, Asogba allegedly came out to admit being the one responsible for her death.
It was said that the DPO Ipokia Division, SP Adebayo Hakeem, had detailed the scene where the suspect was arrested by his men.

In the meantime, the Ogun Police Commissioner, Edward Ajogun, ordered that the case will be transferred for further investigation to the homicide section of the State CIID.
