A five-year-old boy simply identified as Mujeeb was hacked to death by yet-to-be-identified persons in his compound in the Tose area of Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State today Monday, June 22.

This incident comes weeks after three females, Grace OshiagwuBarakat Bello, and Azeezat Shomuyiwa, were killed by unidentified persons in the same local government area.

It was while defecating that the assailants allegedly hacked him to death.

“When the rain subsided, he told his older sibling that he wanted to go and defecate. The older sibling opened the back door for him to go defecate. Had I known I would have asked him to defecate in the front of the house. Suddenly, he cried out, “Mummy, Mummy”. His older sibling and I rushed out to the backyard but we didn’t see him initially.

Then I checked beside the bush and found him macheted. He hadn’t died when we got there. So, people took him from my hand to take him to the hospital but he later died,” Mujeeb’s mother said
