A tenant, Tunmise Abraham, 39, who allegedly raped his landlady, Olanrewaju Bukola, 38, to death in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, last week has said he did not kill the woman intentionally.

Abraham said he had hit Bukola with a stick in anger.

The Commissioner of Police, Ekiti State command, Mr Amba Asuquo, while parading Abraham at the state police headquarters yesterday, said the suspect, after committing the act, fled to Akure, Ondo State, where the police arrested him.

Asuquo said the suspect confessed he was provoked by his landlady’s mockery of him as a stammerer and mad person.

The Commissioner said, “This generated into a fight and the suspect overpowered the deceased by forcefully collecting from her the stick she was holding and using it to beat her on the head, which resulted into a serious head injury.

“He further found a rope which he used to tie up the hands of the woman, who was later found dead in a pool of blood as a result of the head injury she sustained.”

Asuquo added that after Abraham noticed that he had killed his landlady, he fled to Akure.
