He added, “On August 29, 2019 around 2pm, Ismaila boarded a commercial motorcycle ridden by one Joel Musa to Olubowale’s house.Ismaila sexually assaulted the woman and subsequently smashed her head with a wooden stool which led to her death.
“When the commercial motorcyclist returned him to Oju-Irin, Akobo area of Ibadan, he noticed a wound and blood stains on one of Ismaila’s fingers and he became suspicious due to unusual sound he heard from the house while he was outside.
