This was disclosed in release by the spokesman of the command, DSP, Ambibola Oyeyemi which was made available to news men in Abeokuta.

It was reported that the deceased was rushed to the hospital but was confirmed dead by the doctor.
Upon his report, the DPO Sango division CSP Godwin Idehai led his detectives to the scene at ijoko area where the five suspects were apprehended.
Preliminary investigation revealed that while a landlord in the area was coming in his tricycle loaded with kegs of water, he fell down with the kegs of water and while picking those kegs, Toheeb popoola whose house was situated in the place came out to question him for his reason of staying there.
This led to argument between them and it was at that point the deceased met them and tried to intervene.
His intervention did not go down well with Toheeb who invited the other four suspects to the scene and ordered them to beat both the deceased and the tricycle man up. In the process, the deceased was rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead.
The corpse of the deceased has been deposited at Ifo general hospital mortuary for autopsy.
