Never in his wildest imagination did Sunday Fesonu bargained for the event thatÂ erupted two weeks ago, as he set out from his Ipokia residence in Ogun state, for the petrol station he worked as a fuel attendant.
Trouble started later that day when the sum of N140,000 was discovered to have been missing from the dayâ€™s sales, with all the staff denying being in possession of the stolen money.
Then ,rumor as gathered, started making the round that Ezekial was last seen around the area the money was kept ~an accusation that later got to his hearing. He was said to have cried profusely denying the allegation. But the tears were described as crocodile tears.
To further get to the root of the matter by exposing whoever stole the amount, the staff as gathered, sought the assistance of a herbalist in Otta area of the state.
Arriving the place same day, Ezekiel was reportedly given some powdery substance to lick, on the explanation that whoever stole the money would have a running stomach and later confess.
But on the contrary, Ezekiel was said to have yelled out in pains, holding unto his stomach. Moments later, Ezekiel reportedly laid stone dead and before the next move on how to rush him to a nearby hospital could be made, he breathed his last.
Shocked at the spontaneous effect of the substance , those who reportedly accompanied him to Otta, took to their hells, abandoning him on the road.
When news of the tragedy reached the deceased place of work, detectives from the Ogun State Criminal Investigation Department, Abeokuta, were invited, leading to some arrests.
Confirming the arrest, the Ogun State Police spokesman, Mr Muyiwa Adejobi said three persons among who was the native doctor that administered the powdery substance were arrested.
He gave the names of the trio as Fatai Adesina, Sadiku Sanni and Olumuyiwa Dada.. Ezekielâ€™s corpse, he said, had been deposited at the mortuary while the suspects would be charged to court.
