Published

on

A commercial motorcycle rider well known as okada rider, Denis Nwambam, has been arrested for the alleged murder of a tricycle rider, Wasiu Osinowo, in the Matogun area of Ogun State.

Nwambam reportedly stabbed Osinowo to death in a fight over right of way while they were both plying the road around 11pm on Wednesday, JomogNews Nigeria reports.

According to our source, Nwambam and Osinowo had struggled over right of way, leading to an exchange of words.

Some minutes later, Osinowo was said to have flagged down Nwambam along the road and challenged him to a duel during which the latter stabbed him in the stomach. He reportedly bled to death.

It was gathered that the police at the Agbado division were alerted to the incident and the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Kuranga Yero, led a team to the scene to arrest the suspect.

On Thursday, some angry youths reportedly took Osinowo’s corpse to the police station and demanded that Nwambam be released to them.

A resident, Deji Gabriel, told our correspondent that it took the intervention of some elders in the community to prevail on the protesters.

He said, “The deceased’s friends protested at the station. They brought his corpse and demanded that the suspect should be released to them. It was a community leader called Fatai Asiwaju and others who pacified them. They later left with the corpse.”

Narrating what transpired that night, Nwambam, a 36-year-old father of three, admitted to have stabbed Osinowo but said it was not intentional.

He said, “The man (Osinowo) and I were coming from the same direction. He was riding a tricycle while I was riding a motorcycle. He nearly hit me and I cautioned him to keep to his lane. We exchanged words and parted ways. I didn’t know he and his friends had gone to lay in ambush for me.

“As I approached the spot where they were, they descended on me and beat me up. I abandoned my bike and fled. They chased me to a bar and I picked up a knife to defend myself. I just held the knife. He wanted to get hold of me when the knife struck him in the stomach. That was what happened.”

Also, police have commenced investigation to unravel the death of an engineer working at a rail construction site along Agbado Crossing, Ogun State.

The deceased, identified only as Ifeanyi, was reportedly electrocuted inside a bar run by his lover, Ngozi Dibo, on Wednesday night.

Dibo, 39, who also resides in the bar, was ill that night and was asleep when she was woken up by Ifeanyi’s scream.

She said, “He was even the one who covered me with a piece of cloth. As he was inside, he picked a drink from my stock. I told him he had taken enough at work and shouldn’t drink more. He begged me and I slept off.

“Suddenly, I heard a noise which woke me up. It was around 12am and power was just restored. I saw him electrocuted while trying to plug a wire. I rushed out and called for help.”

The single mother of two said she and Ifeanyi got into a relationship about three months ago, adding that the children didn’t live with her.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the two incidents, said investigations had commenced.

He said, “There was a misunderstanding between the tricycle rider and the motorcyclist. The suspect has been arrested and transferred to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department.

“In the other incident, the woman told us that the man was electrocuted but we will carry out investigation to verify her claim.”

Suspected assailants have killed a pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Bolanle Ibrahim inside his church, the King of King parish at Maidan village in the Mile 12 area of Lagos state.

It is reported that the clergyman was praying for mothers and their children when the suspected assailants stormed the church and tried to drag him out.

The distraught wife of the deceased, Mrs. Kudirat Ibrahim said on the fateful day her husband was killed, he was fasting.

She said for the period they courted she never suspected her husband to be a cultist, wondering where people heard that he was a cult member.

An aunt of the deceased pastor, Mrs. Justina Alebiosu, who confirmed the incident, alleged that it was a clear case of hired assassination.

“Even before they killed him, they showed him his picture to identify if he was actually the right person they came for. His death was an unfortunate one.

We have lost a gentleman. It was true we were born as Muslims, but we converted to Christianity.

My thinking is that my brother had business transaction with someone.

I was told when the assailants wanted to drag him out of the pulpit where he was praying for women who brought their children for dedication, he begged them to kill him there and that was where he was eventually killed by the gunmen.

The assailants also threatened to shoot any of the members of the church who dare come close to them.

Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CSP Muyiwa Adejobi said a man was attacked during church service. The assailants went for him in the church and that the police were investigating the case.
