Landlord’s son beats tenant to death in Ondo

The son of a landlord identified simply as Sam Omojola has been arrested by the police in Ondo State for allegedly killing his father’s tenant.

Omojola was  alleged to have hit the deceased with a plank on the head during a fight between victim and  his father.

Sources said that the sad incident occurred in Oke Ijebu area of Akure, the State capital, and that trouble started when the landlord had a disagreement with the deceased tenant over issue of house rent.

The landlord, who allegedly accused the tenant of insulting him, later called his son on phone.

According to Police sources, when the son arrived, instead of inquiring about what transpired between his father and the deceased, he went for a plank and hit the tenant on the head.

He was said to have fallen down bleeding while concerned neighbours quickly rushed him to the hospital where he was admitted but died two days later.

Immediately the news of the death of the deceased filtered through the town, some relatives and friends of the deceased were said to have mobilised to the landlord’s house with the intention of setting it ablaze.

But the arrival of policemen from Ijapo police station was said to have prevented them from razing down the house.

The policemen arrested the suspect and investigation is ongoing.
