Police operatives in Ogun State have arrested a 25-year-old boy, Bisi Omoniyi, for allegedly k*lling his 50-year-old rival, Akinyemi Alani, during a fi*ht over their mutual lover.
The incident occurred on Friday, October 15, in Ajilete town, when Omoniyi reportedly met the deceased in the apartment of his lover identified as Kafayat Sakariyau.
The command’s spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspect was arrested following a distress call received by the police in Owode Egbado Divisional Headquarters.
According to him, “The preliminary investigation revealed that the victim, Akinyemi Alani, was with the woman friend, Kafayat Sakariyau, in her room apartment at Ajilete.
Alani, whose intention was to pass the night with the woman, was already settled in when the suspect, who also wanted to sleep with the lady, Kafayat, came knocking but was denied entry.
Omoniyi, who came from Ibasa area of Okeodan, forced his way into the woman’s room and met the deceased there in a position the suspect described as unacceptable to him.
Consequently, a fi*ht ensued between them and the suspect picked a cutlass in the room and m*cheted Alani to d*ath. The corpse of the deceased has been deposited at the general hospital mortuary for autopsy, while the woman in the center of the crisis has since taken to flight.”
