A 16-year-old girl has been arrested by the police for allegedly pushing a 52-year-old woman, Medinat Aliu, to death in the Isolo area of Akure, Ondo state capital.
It was gathered that the deceased and the teenager had a little altercation over a matter that concerned a well in their neighborhood.
The altercation was said to have led to a mild scuffle between them, so the suspect allegedly pushed the deceased who fell and became unconscious. She later gave up the ghost.
ACCORDING TO A SOURCE SAID,
“The issue began when the suspect was fetching water from the well in the area after she had earlier taken her bathe.
“The deceased observed that the suspect did not cover her hair and she told her to cover the hair. That was what led to the altercation. As the deceased tried to move her (suspect) away from the well, the latter pushed her and she fell down and died later.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident and said investigation had commenced.
“The case has been transferred to state Criminal Investigative Department for further investigation,” the PPRO stated.
