Suspected men allegedly burn Ekiti chief alive inside bush in Benue

A Tiv man, identified simply as Sunday, and three others have allegedly burnt to death in a bush the Onibedo of Ilotin Ekiti, Chief Sola Fatunla.

It was gathered that Sunday, who deals in charcoal, had earlier accused Fatunla of having a love affair with his wife, identified simply as Tadeni, but the matter was said to have been resolved as it was realised that the chief and his wife were mere family friends and Sunday was said to have apologised for his behaviour.

But events took a tragic turn on Sunday when Fatunla followed the man to the bush.

Sunday had allegedly begged Fatunla to use his influence as a chief in Ikole Ekiti to plead with some people he claimed had seized his charcoal in the bush.

A source said, “While accompanying him and Tadeni to where the charcoal was allegedly seized, three others, who Sunday had allegedly connived with to abduct Fatunla and Tadeni, appeared from the bush around Iyemero Ekiti in the Ikole Local Government Area of the state and manhandled the chief and the lady.

“Both Fatunla and Tadeni were tied to trees. The men beat Fatunla with their cutlasses. Later, they poured petrol on him and set him ablaze. It was when they came back to mete punishment out to Tadeni that they realised that she had escaped.

“When Sunday and his accomplices could not find Tadeni, they decided to escape through Patigi in Kwara State to Benue State with the aid of Fatunla’s motorcycle. Unfortunately for them, they were apprehended by vigilantes in Patigi, who queried their mission at that time of the night.
