The Ondo State Police Command has been on the trail of one Deji Adenuga, who set a whole family ablazed in Igbodigo, in Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.
Adenuga was said to have been jilted by his girlfriend, Titi Sanumi, prompting him to set her family house ablaze in the middle of the night with nine members of the family asleep.
However, the two lovers were said to have been in love for years before Titi decided to part-way with Deji few weeks ago over an issue that has not been made known to the public.
The family house was burnt beyond imagination which no fewer than five members of the family died while others were injured as the man reportedly fled after the attack on the Sanumis’ family house.
WESTERNPOST confirmed that the girlfriend was not at home when the estranged boyfriend came perpetrating the dastardly act of setting the house ablaze and the injured family members rushed to Trauma Hospital, Ondo, where they are now receiving treatment.
Police report says nine family members, who were occupants of a house, including Victor’s 45-year-old brother, Alade Glory, were set ablaze in their one room apartment at Adetuwo Street in Igbodigho.
The police report also said that five of the victims had been confirmed dead.
At present, Deji Adenuga is at large and the police is determined to fish him out wherever he is bidding in no distance time according to the image maker of the police, Mr Femi Joseph.
