5-Year-Old Boy Macheted To Death In Oyo

A five-year-old Mujeeb has been macheted to death by unidentified persons on Monday in Akinyele local government area of Oyo state.

BLazeNewz gathered that just after Monday morning’s rainfall, Mujeeb had gone to the back of the house in Tose area of Akinyele LGA to defecate only to be hit by the assailants who may have escaped into the bush afterwards.

Apparently, under the attack, Mujeeb had let out a cry for help but before his mother could find where the voice came from, he had been struck and left in the pool of his own blood.

“When the rain subsided, he told his older sibling that he wanted to go and defecate. The older sibling opened the back door for him to go defecate.

“Had I known I would have asked him to defecate in the front of the house. Suddenly, he cried out, “Mummy, Mummy”. His older sibling and I rushed out to the backyard but we didn’t see him initially.

“Then I checked beside the bush and found him macheted. He hadn’t died when we got there. So, people took him from my hand to take him to the hospital but he later died,” Mujeeb’s mother said.

Mujeeb’s killing follows three earlier cases of that of Grace Oshiagwu, Barakat Bello and Azeezat Shomuyiwa in the same Akinyele Local Government Area.

As at the time of filling this report, the state Police Public Relations Office, Gbenga Fadeyi, promised to get back to us for confirmation of the incident.
