The Ondo State Police Command has arrested Deji Adenuga, the ex-convict who set his ex-girlfriend, Titi Sanumi’s home ablaze, killing eight members of her family.
The Ondo State Police Command has arrested a 40-year-old man identified as Deji Adenuga, who allegedly burnt his girlfriend’s family house at Ayeka Igbodigo in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The suspect who is also an ex-convict had fled Ondo in order to escape the arrest after the incident but was arrested at his hideout in Ijebu Ode, Ogun state, under the bridge, around the bus park.
Adenuga was one of the inmates that escaped at Olokuta prison during the 2013 prison break.
Adenuga had set his girlfriend’s house ablaze after a rift led to their separation, residents of Igbodigo in Ayeka, Okitipupa, however, woke up last Tuesday morning to the horrible sight.
The death toll which was initially five after the attack – rose to eight as three other family members died in the hospital following burn injuries they sustained.
