A 35-years-old man, Obinna Kalu was on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 arrested by operatives of the Ogun State Police Command for shooting his co-tenant, Balogun Adijat with a gun at her right rib.
The arrest of the suspect followed a report made at Sabo/Ilupeju Divisional Headquarters by one Olayiwola Kareem, who reported that while the victim was sleeping in her room around 12:00 noon on Sunday, March 14, 2021, Kalu, who has always been at loger head with the victim sneaked into her room and shot her on the right rib.
Upon the report, the DPO Sabo/Ilupeju Division SP Mustapha Opawoye quickly led his men to the scene where the victim was quickly rescued to state hospital ijaye and was later referred to Federal Medical Center Abeokuta for medical attention.
Having carried out the dastardly act, Kalu, the suspect quickly went into his apartment, packed all his belongings and ran away.
Fasnews reliably gathered from the State Image Maker, DSP Abimbola Oyetemi that a massive manhunt was immediately launched for Kalu, and with the cooperation of members of the public, he was eventually arrested on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.
Upon interrogation, the suspect initially denied been the person that shot the victim, but when he was asked for the rational behind his sudden action of evacuating his belongings and running away from the house, he was unable to argue further.
The victim is currently recuperating at Federal Medical Center Abeokuta.
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun has ordered the transfer of the case to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and prosecution.
