The Ondo State police command has arrested a man for allegedly shooting to disperse guests at a party in Oba Akoko, Akoko South West Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The man allegedly stormed the venue of the party and started shooting sporadically on sighting his girlfriend with another man.
Orange FM’s Flora Iweanya reports that the police command also arrested a 26 year old man, Godwin Matthew for matcheting his 64 year old father, Matthew Audu to death in Akure, the Ondo state capital.
It was a very scary scene as guests who gathered to celebrate with their loved ones had to take to their heels when a gun wielding individual identified as a security man traced his lover to the party and got angry when he confirmed she accompanied another man there.
Though no life was lost in the incident, many of the guests at the party were said to have sustained injuries as they ran for safety.
Another source claimed that the suspect was an officer of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun corps, in the area while some said he is a serving policeman attached to the area.
When contacted, the state Commander of the Amotekun corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye and police spokesperson Funmilayo Odunlami denied claims that the suspect was one of their officers.
Odunlami however confirmed the arrest of the suspect adding that an investigation had commenced into the case.
Also, the Police confirmed the murder of 64 year old Mathew Audu by his son which was reported at the Ala Police station by the wife of the deceased Mrs Christianah Audu.
In the course of investigation into the incident which occurred on the 9th of last month, the suspect said his late father directed him to kill a chicken to entertain his 6 year old brother but it was only the chicken head that was given to him and this made him to kill his father.
The police public relations officer, Funmilayo Odunlami said the suspect has been arrested and charged to court.
Odunlami assured that the police will continually do its job of protecting lives and property
