Investigations into the death of a 16-year-old boy, Seubow, who was allegedly killed by her foster mother, Olayemi Ayangbe, popularly called Iya Anu, has shown that she and her husband, Timothy, were culpable.

The Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Ngozi Braide, who spoke with our correspondent on the phone on Tuesday, said this was the outcome of the preliminary investigation into the matter.

She said, “The incident was reported at Isheri Oshun Police Division on Sunday evening and the DPO personally quizzed the couple. They both confessed to beating the boy to death.

“Olayemi started the beating while Timothy later joined her in battering the boy up till the time the boy gave up the ghost.

“Timothy admitted he joined in battering the boy because of his habit of stealing. He said he had continuously soiled his name within the neighbourhood as a result of the development.”

Braide confirmed to our correspondent that the police had in time past quizzed Olayemi for battering the boy.

She said, “The deceased is Timothy’s nephew and the police had arrested Olayemi before on complaints of battering but the present DPO was not the head of the police station at that time.

“The deceased’s father is late but his mother who stays in the Badagry area of the state has been informed about the incident and will be meeting with the police tomorrow (Wednesday).

“The couple are still in police custody and investigations are ongoing. The case will be transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department on Wednesday.”

Olayemi had allegedly beaten Seubow to death at their residence at 8, Amosu Street, Ijegun, Lagos, on Sunday on the allegations that he stole N50 to buy Gala after he was starved throughout Saturday for misplacing a N1,000 note.

Residents of the area had told PUNCH Metro that Olayemi battered Seubow, who moved in with them in December 2011, till he gave up the ghost on Sunday afternoon.

Olayemi, who was described as violent by her neighbours, was said to be in the habit of inflicting injuries on Seubow and her own children whenever they erred.

Besides, they alleged that she often transferred her belligerence to her neighbours by attacking them with objects on the slightest provocation.

Olayemi, a mother of four, is a serial divorcee. Timothy is her third husband.

Alexander Akinnurun , the Proprietor of Alex Group of Schools, Ijegun, where Seubow attended before his death, had told our correspondent on Monday that he reported Olayemi at the police station in June when the deceased came to school with a battered face.
