One Michael Adunola and a woman, Atinuke Olawoyin, on Tuesday appeared before an Osun State Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ile-Ife for killing two persons.
They were accused of murdering Michael’s wife, Esther, and 14-month-old daughter, Glory.

PUNCH Metro had reported that two headless bodies suspected to be a mother and her child were found in the Isale Agbara area of Ile-Ife.

The police prosecutor, Sunday Osanyintuyi, said the accused committed the offences on May 23, 2020, around noon in Ile-Ife.

He explained that Michael and Atinuke conspired and murdered the deceased.

He said the accused unlawfully killed Esther and Glory, and severed their heads and hands.

The offences, he stated, contravened sections 242, 319(1) and 516 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Osun State, 2002.

Because of the nature of the case, the plea of the accused was not taken.
