The Police in Lagos have arrested a 38-year-old man for allegedly killing his mother-in-law and one other person after raping his wife’s teenage sister in the Ibeju-Lekki area of the state.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the arrest in his verified Twitter handle.

He said that the suspect, who killed his mother-in-law, killed the person who saw him perpetrating the act.

“The suspect killed his mother-in-law, only to discover someone saw him committing the crime. He quickly killed the man that saw him.

“Preliminary investigation shows that he killed his mother-in-law because she discovered he was having carnal knowledge of his wife’s 14-year old younger sister (mother-in-law’s daughter) and vowed to take it up,” he said.

Mr Hundeyin said that the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for conclusion of investigation and arraignment.
