Akure is the state’s capital in Ondo state.
The suspect allegedly pushed the deceased, who fell and went unconscious, after the argument between them resulted in a small fight. Afterward, the woman lost her life.
According to reports, the deceased and the suspect got into a small argument on that fatal day regarding a well in their area.
The Ondo State Police Command has detained a 16-year-old female.
A source stated, “The issue began when the suspect was fetching water from the well in the area after she had earlier taken her bathe.
“The deceased observed that the suspect did not cover her hair and she told her to cover the hair. That was what led to the altercation. As the deceased tried to move her (suspect) away from the well, the latter pushed her and she fell down and died later.”
Ms. Funmilayo Odunlami, the state’s police public relations officer, verified the occurrence and stated that an investigation had started.
“The case has been transferred to state Criminal Investigative Department for further investigation,” the PPRO stated.
