March 8, 2016 – 99-Year-Old Man Arrested For Sending Hired Killers To Behead Benin Chief Priest Over Land Dispute

99-Year-old Pa Ewansiha Owieadolor, his son, and two others are helping the Edo State Police Command in investigating the beheading of a chief priest (Ohen-Ogba), Pa Clifford Omosomwan, 86, on Thursday in Benin.

Pa Omosomwan was attacked at his home. His assailants entered his home through the window of his bedroom.

Owieadolor, 99, is the village head of Aruogba community. The old man and others are being held by the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

An eyewitness said the nonagenarian and the late chief priest were quarrelling about land.

    There is nothing new, or shocking, in this story except the 99year-old papa. As people age, they drop off certain characteristic behaviours and tendencies that youth is known for, and become more sober and thoughtful, calm and harmless. I am amazed that a man who should be making prepartions to leave this vain earth is still enmeshed in a bloody land dispute as to even spill blood as if he would take that land to his ancestors. If he could be this wicked at 99, what was he at, say 30?.

    it is unfortunate that the people that are supposed to be peace makers in the land has now turn out to the peace destroyers themselves.

    Imagine old man who should be thanking God for long life & equally pray to make heaven instead he’s arranging for other people’s murder. Such a wasted life
