The Ondo arsonist who was responsible for killing eight members of his girlfriend’s family has revealed why he committed the crime.
Aged 45, Deji Adenuga, said that he committed the crime having been provoked by the decision of his girlfriend to abort his four-month pregnancy.
Speaking while being paraded in Akure, he said that the girl identified as Titi Saanumi, got rid of the pregnancy without seeking his consent, adding that he was provoked by her refusal to refund the money he spent on her after she left him.
“Each time we had any misunderstanding, she would move to her sister’s place until I could provide money to settle the sister and my wife.
“I was angry because she aborted my four-month old pregnancy and failed to return my money to me. The money was N55,000.
“Her mother made several efforts to intervene but she refused. It was her sister, Jumoke, whose house I set ablaze, that was behind the whole issue.
“We lived together in my house. We started our relationship last year. She has no issue for me. The pregnancy was about four months and she aborted it.
“I asked her to return my money to me if she was no longer going to marry me. She refused. That’s what caused the fight and they threatened to deal with me if I ever returned to ask for the money,” he said.
Adenuga also revealed that Jumoke’s husband had been down with stroke and they used his money to take care of him.
A notorious killer, Adenuga was also said to have killed his first wife Abiye in 2000.
