A man, Chizoke Obiadada, and his son, Micheal Obiadada, have landed in police net for joining hands to beat their neighbour's wife, Tope Owoade, to death in the Ogijo Area of Ogun State.

This was disclosedbin a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Omolola Odutola, on Saturday.

According to the police, the incident occurred after the deceased asked Obiadada not to sit on a table which she used in selling cow skin, popularly known as "?ponmo'.

As a result, Obiadada and his son engaged the woman in a fight, inflicting injuries on her, which eventually led to her death later the same day.

The deceased's husband, Isiaka Owoade, reported the incident.

"On the 29th of March, 2024 when he (Isiaka Owoade) returned from a journey, his late wife informed him that on the previous day which was the 28th of March, 2024, at about 2030hrs, one Chizoke Obiadada, "?m', 54 years, and his son, one Micheal Obiadada, "?m', 17 years, his known neighbours, hacked his wife in fist blows, beating her up mercilessly, by inflicting fatal injuries on his wife which resulted in her bleeding severely from the womb and in her private part.
