The incident allegedly happened at Rukayat’s residence, 22, Pasoku Street, Aga area of Ikorodu, Lagos.

Investigations found that Mr. Adeola murdered Rukayat in her room on Monday at about 6 pm, after they had an argument over the ownership of the disputed piece of land.

The night before the murder (Sunday), Adeola and his wife had visited Rukayat and dined with her. Rukayat was later found dead by her fiancé on Tuesday 15 July, at about 8:30pm.

A resident of the street who pleaded anonymity spoke to PM NEWS saying “We got to know of her death Tuesday night, over 24 hours after she was murdered. Her boyfriend only came to visit her on his way back from work when he found her dead and raised the alarm.”

After his arrest and interrogation by the police, Adeola said that he did not kill his sister intentionally.

“I didn’t have the intention of killing her, she was my sister. If I wanted to kill her, I wouldn’t leave the knife at the scene and I would wear a glove to prevent my finger prints. The incident happened when we were dragging,” he confessed.

Rukayat’s younger brother, Abideen Omotayo, however believes Adeola could not have killed their sister alone and would want the police to further investigate the matter.

“I have an inkling he did not kill our sister alone. He used to be a member of Eiye Confraternity when he was studying at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, but was expelled around 2008 because of his involvement in cultism,” Abideen said.

Some of the posts on her Facebook wall border on regrets for a promising lady cut down in her prime.

Bolaji Mustapha said he woke up with sadness over the death of his niece. “I woke to sorrow and sadness; my niece was murdered right on her bed… What has she done to deserve a death penalty? This is evil,” he wrote.

Salau-Adekola Funmilola Balqees wrote that no matter the offence she committed she should have been forgiven.

“No matter the offence you committed, they should have forgiven you and not murder you. This is cruelty of the highest order. We only find solace in the fact that God knows best. May Allah forgive your sins and be merciful to you,” she wrote on the wall.

Olajumoke Adelabu posted that Rukayat was a strong lady who went for the best. “A strong lady you were, always ready to withstand all odds. I still remember the last time we saw and all the interesting stuff we chatted about. Omotayo Adedapo Rukayat I wish you were allowed to attain more achievements,” Olajumoke wrote.

its very sadden the way  devil has occupied the minds of many Nigerians,and all those evil behaviors are escalating day by day in Nigeria ,mainly boc of govt negligence and failure to his people and Nigeria,not until the issues of cultism get to address and discipline very well,it is still gonna cause lot of havoc,like those trauma happening every day in Nigeria are highly cause by those so called cultists like,kidnapping ,arm robbing,jungle justice and others,if you mind is not sealed by evil you can not ve the mind to do any of those ungodly act,and moreover this issue of land dispute has  claimed   many Nigerians life,the govt ve to find how they ll settle that shit.
