There is pandemonium in Agbado Ekiti area of Ekiti State, as youths of the area went off on rampage, blocking all access routes to the area and threatening to kill one Toyin aka Yala Yala, who hanged the husband of a pregnant lady, Apeteshi yesterday in a farm settlement.
The suspect who asked Apeteshi who is also a bike rider to convey him to his farm, allegedly overpowered his victim, hanged him with a rope and dumped his corpse in an already dug grave in the farm.

“Toyin was said to have gone to the terminal of the commercial motorbike operators in Agbado this morning and engaged the service of his victim to convey him to his farm which is located in front of the shoe making factory of the popular politician, Senator Gbenga Aluko.
“People who were at the factory told us that the bubble burst when they heard agonizing cry of Toyin’s victim repeatedly and decided to check up what had happened. It was then they allegedly met Toyin dumping the corpse of his victim into the freshly dug hole, apprehended him and later handed him over to the nearest police station in the area.
“The police had since morning arrested Toyin with the corpse and taken them away to their station. “
He added that the deceased’s wife is heavily pregnant and reported at the station when informed about the tragedy that befell her husband. When contacted on the tele phone for confirmation, the Police Public Relations Officer to the Ekiti State Command, Caleb Ikechukwu, said;
