“The wife and the daugh­ter, were beheaded for rea­sons known to him and the three corpses have been deposited at the General Hospital, Ifo while further investigation into the matter has commenced.

“Up till this moment, no one or any member of the deceased family or neigh­bours could intimate the police with the cause of the incident, but the last state­ment Mr Olubusayo made before he died, in the pres­ence of the police detectives suggested that there was a quarrel between him and his late wife.”
