‘Lunatic’ beheads 84-year-old man in Ogun

Pandemonium broke out on Friday in in Ipara community, Remo North Local Government Area of Ogun State, when a 32 year old, man David Shodola, suspected to be mentally challenged beheaded an 84-year-old man, Elder Alfred Opadipe.

The incident threw the entire town into confusion.

He also ended up dead as he violently resisted arrest and attacked police officers with a machete.

Ogun State Police spokesperson, Omotola Odutola, who confirmed the incident on Friday evening, said a distress call from an unnamed informant prompted Divisional Police Officer (DPO) CSP Bankole Isara Eluyeru to lead some officers to the scene.

According to her, the suspect fiercely resisted arrest as he used “the machete on the DPO and his men.” The team succeeded “in neutralising the suspect and recovering a weapon from him,” she affirmed.

The police spokesperson, however, asserted that there was “no recount of the suspect being a madman from the intelligence the police gathered.”
