Olalonpe Ganiyu, until her death a couple of weeks ago, loved her relations to a fault. Blessed with several children, Olanlope, said to be close to a hundred years before her untimely death, showed great love and affection for her kin.

When one of her daughters died in early 2012, the elderly woman immediately took all the late daughter’s children into her custody. Olanlope lived at Yemetu in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Among the children Olanlope took into custody and caring for is 32-Year-Old Tajudeen Adekunle. But ever since Adekunle and his siblings had been living with their grandmother, the elderly woman and her grandson were said to have been dealing with each other like cat and dog. The no love lost relationship between grandmother and grandson came to a head recently when Adekunle allegedly hacked the old woman to death.

Evening of Sunday, October 15, 2012, Adekunle’s grandmother advised him to have a haircut as she was said not to be favourably disposed to his hair style. This had actually been a source of disagreement between them before that day.

The next day, Monday, October 16, 2012, when the old woman realised that Adekunle was not ready to do her billing, she reportedly refused to prepare the man’s dinner that day. This did not go down well with Adekunle who reportedly refused to change his ‘crazy’ hairstyle as claimed by the grandmother.

Both grandmother and grandson soon reportedly began to exchange abusive words.

When Adekunle realized that his grandmother was not backing down on her demands and insisting that he would not eat any food in the house that night if he failed to do what she wanted, he quickly dashed inside his room and came out with a cutlass, threatening the old woman with it.

But one elderly peacemaker, Busari Ogundeji, said to be a neighbour of the feuding family who could not pretend not to have heard the altercation between grandmother and grandson came around the house to intervene. When he got to Olanlope’s house, Ogundeji reportedly met Adekunle holding a cutlass and he reportedly joined Adekunle’s grandmother rebuking the enraged man.

Ogundeji was reported to have threatened that should Adekunle refuse to drop the cutlass and do what his grandmother ordered him to do; he would make him sweat by any means. At this point, Adekunle’s anger rose and he wasted no time in striking Ogundeji with the cutlass.

The cutlass reportedly inflicted deep cut on Ogundeji’s body and the elderly man slumped and laid in his own blood. When Olanlope saw what her grandson just did to a neighbour that had joined her to discipline him, the old woman made a dash for the door.

But Adekunle was faster. The hand holding the machete descended again but this time on his grandmother’s neck. The centenarian, like her male neighbour peace maker, also went down.

The two elderly citizens did not make it to the hospital before they joined their ancestors. Their corpses were later deposited at the Adeoyo General Hospital mortuary. Though it was reported that Adekunle upon realising what he had done made no efforts to flee the scene, he still held tight to the cutlass daring anyone who would confront him.

Adekunle was arrested. He was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Iyaganku, where he is being currently detained.

Adekunle managed to speak with reporters about his action:

According to him, he acted in self defense, saying that the threat not to give him dinner made him behaved the way he did. “I severally warned Mama to leave my hair alone but she refused to listen to me. What I did was the best solution to her problem.

The cutlass I used was the one we used to cut tree. It was kept inside the house. I hit her with the cutlass just to let me be. I did not know she would die. I just hit her with it to stop worrying me about my hair”, Adekunle said with no sense of remorse.

Acting Police Public Relations Officer of Oyo State Command, Joseph Oboyi, confirmed Adekunle’s arrest over the death of his grandmother and the man who came to make peace. Oboyi claimed that the accused would soon be prosecuted upon completion of investigations into the dastardly act.
