19 year old boy kills his own 4year old brother in Oyo state

19 year old Rilwan Ahmed (pictured above) did the most
unthinkable thing, he killed his own brother. According to a
report by Tribune, Rilwan took his 4 year old half-brother
Waris Ahmed to an uncompleted building close to their
residence at Oloko village in Ibadan, Oyo State, tied a piece
of cloth across his face, making it difficult for him to breathe,
then tied his legs, and left him there. Life slowly ebbed out of
him as he struggled to breathe. His body was discovered
there 3 days later. Read the full after the cut
This above scenario was what was painted by a murder
suspect, Rilwan Ahmed, when he was discovered to be
responsible for his half-brother, Waris's death.
On Saturday, July 19, 2014, Waris's father, Mr Lateef
Lawal, who is stepfather to Rilwan reported at Ojoo Police
Division of Oyo State Police Command that his four-year-old
son was missing. The entire Oloko village also joined Lawal's
family in a search for the missing boy, Rilwan inclusive, until
he made a statement that raised people's suspicion. He
advised that nearby bush should be cut, giving a high
probability that the missing boy would be found.
With this serving as a lead, detectives at Ojoo Division, led
by the Divisional Police Officer, Musiliu Doga, interrogated
the boy, leading to his startling confession that he was
responsible for the death of the missing boy.
Not a few people wondered why the Rilwan who had been
staying with his stepfather since he was young, could do that
to his own blood, but Rilwan said he could not say precisely
the kind of spirit that controlled his action.
The suspect told Crime Reports that he left school after
Primary Six and had been working as a labourer with
bricklayers. He also disclosed that he refused to learn any
vocation and always ran away from vocational centres he
was taken to. Things were not different when he was taken
to Qur'anic school.
Speaking with Crime Reports, the 19-year-old boy said: "I
live with my mother and stepfather. She gave birth to two of
us before my father died and she remarried. She also gave
birth to six other children for my stepfather. I don't know
what pushed me into what I did to my stepbrother. It was as
if I was being propelled by unknown forces. On the fateful
day, I asked him to follow me to the undeveloped plots by
our residence. When we got to one of the uncompleted
buildings there, I placed a piece of cloth on his face covering
his eyes, mouth and nose. I also tied his legs. He did not
shout so I left him there.
"When I got back home, my mother asked of Waris and I
told her to check him outside. When she could not find him, I
joined in the search for the young boy. When my stepfather
went to the police to report, I remembered that I took
someone to a place. I went back to the uncompleted building
to bring my half-brother home, but met him dead.
"I quickly threw him into a nearby bush and went back
home, afraid of how to break the news to my mother. At a
point, I told the people around that if they wanted us to find
the missing boy, they should let us cut the bush at the back
of our residence. This aroused my stepfather's suspicion and
he went to report my statement to the police. It was when the
police were interrogating me that I confessed to my deeds.
"I took detectives to the bush where I dumped my half-
brother's remains."
Based on information gathered by Crime Reports that the
suspect was angry with his mother for not returning N700 he
kept with her, he was asked whether the anger propelled his
action but he replied in the negative.
"No. I did not keep the money with her, I kept it in my bag
and she went to take it. I told her it was my money made
from my labouring job but she said the money was not mine,
and that she was not going to give it back to me. I was
angry with her and said to myself that I would not release
her son to her if my money was not returned to me.
"But that was not actually what I had in mind when I took my
brother away. My mother did not offend me, neither my half-
brother. My stepfather and mother were taking good care of
me. I can't really place what made me commit the act."
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo
State, Olabisi Okuwobi-Ilobanafor confirmed the story,
describing the murder of the little boy as unfortunate. She
also said that the law would take its course as the boy would
be charged to court after investigations.
