Angry Reactions As 40-Year Old Woman Is Beaten To Death
Cases of civil unrest have been recorded at Arigidi Akoko in Ondo state amid fears of reprisal attacks.
Morenikeji Bello, the 27-year old mother of two, has been arrested for allegedly killing her neighbour, Foluke Olanipekun during a scuffle.
The deceased family is threatening to wipe off every living soul in the suspect's family.
Until the final showdown, the deceased, Foluke Olanipekun and her alleged murderer were said to have been at loggerheads which had defiled all reconciliation attempts by third parties.
In the latest free for all that lasted all night on Sunday, the 40-year old Mrs Olanipekun was said to have slumped and died.
Since the incident occurred and the suspect arrested, it was confirmed that all relations and friends of the said Mrs Bello have vanished from the community having been informed about the threat of revenge by the aggrieved family.
One of the deceased relatives who identified himself as Oladimeji Ojo said it is an eye for an eye.
"We have made up our mind to face any consequence that may arise from our actions because waiting for police investigation will amount to letting the case die a natural death.
"As at today, all her family members in this town have disappeared but until we avenge the death of Foluke, this town will not know peace." He threatened.
An elder in the town, Chief Adebiyi Adewusi who sued for peace said they are meeting with the police to broker peace over the matter.
"Although it is an unfortunate incident, we have to let the police do their job and allow justice to prevail. That is why we are calling on the bereaved family to eschew bitterness and let there be peace till police get to the root of the matter. We are currently meeting to ensure the matter does not degenerate into an internal crisis."
The divisional police officer of Okeagbe-Akoko, Superintendent Ibitayo Adetanranmi confirmed the arrest of the suspect and her children that were involved in the attack.
He noted that his men have been put on red-alert to foil any form of reprisal and arrest the would-be perpetrators.
