Why i killed Ogun school pupils – Madman


Lekan Adebisi, the madman, who killed two pupils of St. John’s Anglican Primary School, Agodo, at Ogun, Mubarak Kalesowo and Sunday Obituyi  on Monday, March 12, 2018, said he attacked and hacked the pupils out of frustration.

The suspect stormed the school while the pupils were on lunch break and hacked the children to death with a cutlass before fleeing the scene.

The massive manhunt launched for him paid off  on Wednesday as he was arrested in the bush through the combined efforts of the police, and some local hunters.

While being paraded on Thursday, Adebisi who was incoherent, said he was 28 years old and eked out a living as a home lesson teacher, adding that he carried out the dastardly act out of frustration and hunger.

According to him, “I did not eat for two weeks and I went out to beg for money. Nobody gave me money. When I had money, I took care of family members, friends and even outsiders.

“It was due to frustration, it was due to frustration. When hunger gripped me and it became unbearable, I then thought about my life and I concluded and asked myself: what type of life am I living?

“It was a bad life, then I went and took cutlass and I was prepared to face the consequence.”
