The Ondo State Police Command has arrested a worker, Adewale Adegoroye, for allegedly killing his boss, Akinwumi Akinmulero, the manager of a cooperative society owned by cocoa farmers in Ondo State.
The 42-year-old suspect was said to have been hired by Akinmulero on commission basis since September 2017, but had a disagreement with the manager on Wednesday over his wage.
The argument was said to have become heated and the suspect reportedly stabbed Akinmulero and fled with N700,000 belonging to the cooperative society.
It was gathered that the cooperative society money was meant to be given to agents to buy cocoa produce from farmers in the rural areas.
Parading the suspect at the Ondo State Police Command headquarters in Akure on Thursday, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Femi Joseph, said the suspect allegedly killed his boss and stole the N700,000 which the deceased withdrew from a bank.
The suspect said he did not intentionally kill his boss, adding that he stabbed him during an argument over his wage.
