Reports also revealed that the suspect raped the woman three times. In the statement that reads,
“The following day, December 9, the motorcyclist took the victim’s son to another room in the house where he beheaded him with a cutlass. He confessed to having dumped the remains of the boy at a nearby bush beside his house, where they were recovered and deposited at the General Hospital mortuary for autopsy,” CP Olukolu said
However, the suspect denied raping the woman. He explained that he liked the woman and intended to marry her. According to him, while he was taking the victim to her destination, he had asked her out and she agreed. However, he said he couldn’t explain why he killed the victim’s son.
“I then took her to my house where we had sex. I didn’t know why I beheaded the boy. I didn’t abduct them. I made love advances to the woman and she agreed, so I took them home. She had even agreed to marry me but I didn’t know why I killed the boy; it was the devil’s work.”
The police commissioner said the suspect will be arraigned in court soon.
