Men of the Ogun State Police Command on Wednesday arrested three men, Felix Sunday, Shomuye Musa, and Oluwatobi Michael for beating Tunji George to death over an allegation of stealing an iPhone 6.

The suspects were arrested following a report by one Bola George who reported at Onipanu Divisional Headquarters that her brother was alleged to have stolen an iPhone 6 at Keke hotel in Iyana Iyesi-Ota, consequent upon which the deceased was tied with rope in the hotel and tortured to death.

Having realized that the victim was about giving up the ghost, the suspects quickly rushed him to the hospital, but died before they could reach the place.

Upon receiving the report, the DPO Onipanu Division, Bamidele Job, mobilized his men and moved to the scene, and two of the suspects were apprehended, while the remaining one was arrested in the hotel where the victim was beaten to death.

On interrogation, the suspects informed the police that they strongly suspected the deceased as the person who stole the iPhone 6, and in order to recover the said phone from him, they decided to torture him not knowing that it will result in his death.

The corpse of the victim was deposited at the General Hospital mortuary, Ota for autopsy.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.

He also warned that the command under his leadership will not tolerate any form of jungle justice and whoever engaged in such act, no matter his status or position will not be spared from punishment under the law.
