The police in Ekiti have arrested a man, Wale Ede, 25, for allegedly beheading a 50-year-old Vehicle Inspection Officer and father of seven, Joshua Fagbola.
It was learnt that Ede attacked Fagbola when he was about to start the engine of his motorbike and leave the venue of the wake.
The deceased had on Thursday reportedly seized the cell phone of his suspected killer when he failed to supply the brick block for which he had been paid.
An eye witness said Ede, on sighting the VIO at the wake, had rushed home to fetch a machete and inflicted cuts on the deceased’s neck and other parts of the body.
The Ekiti Police Public Relations Officer, Alberto Adeyemi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, confirmed the incident to PUNCH on Sunday.
