A man identified as Taye Agbaje is reported to have tragically ended the lives of his younger brother’s two children within a forested area in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.
On Saturday, August 5th, Taye visited his sibling’s residence in Kemta Abata, Abeokuta. He then transported the two young girls on his motorcycle to a different location before using a cutlass to take their lives.
The father of the children, Idowu Agbaje, had been absent when Taye took away the children, but upon returning home later in the day, he became alarmed by their absence. He initiated a search for them within the community and was informed by community members that the two girls had been seen earlier riding on Taye’s motorcycle.
Local residents of Kemta Abata expressed shock over the incident, as the suspect was not known to be a resident within the community.
A confidential source within the community detailed that Taye is currently in police custody. Initially, Taye denied knowledge of the girls’ whereabouts when questioned about their disappearance. Despite community members affirming they had seen him with the children, he insisted that he had only taken them to the market.
However, he later confessed at the Kemta police division to having committed the heinous act. He led the police to the location where he had taken the lives of his nieces, their throats slashed and their lifeless bodies abandoned in the bush.
A deeply disturbing aspect of Taye’s confession is his lack of remorse or specific motive. He attributed the act to “satan” during the police interrogation. The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, verified the incident, describing it as incomprehensible.
While Taye blamed “satan” for his actions, the police spokesperson emphasized that this explanation holds no legal ground. Odutola also noted that further details about the incident would be shared in due course.
