Suspect pushes peacemaker to death

The Ondo State Police Command on Tuesday said it had arrested a man, Rafiu Akinwale, over the death of one Adesoji Adesida.

  An eyewitness said, “As the two lovers were fighting, the deceased tried to intervene, but out of anger, he (Akinwale) pushed the deceased and he fell and lost consciousness.

 “He was immediately rushed to a hospital where he was confirmed dead.”

 The state Police Public Relations Officer, Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident and the arrest of the suspect.

“The suspect has been arrested and an investigation has commenced into the incident,” the PPRO said.
