Three arrested as man stab another to death at Ogun party

A man identified only as Abubakar was fatally stabbed following an argument that broke out between him and another person at a birthday party in the Halleluyah Quarter, Ibafo area of Obafemi Owode Local Government Area in Ogun State.

The incident occurred on Friday night at the birthday party organized by Nafiu Yusuf for his one-year-old daughter. Three people have been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command in connection with the incident.

When our correspondent visited the Ibafo Police Station on Saturday morning, he observed a crowd outside the station, including commercial motorcyclists. Several women, including the deceased’s wife, relatives, and friends, were seen crying outside the police station.

An eyewitness, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of interrogation, said the deceased was killed by someone named Anuoluwapo, adding that they had a similar fight a week before the incident.

I just spoke with them inside the station. The DPO has directed that they put Baba Jaye and Jase, as the incident happened in his place, inside the cell. It was a minor issue that started last week. They started the fight last week. I just pity the wife. You can see how she is crying. The issue that caused all this was minor and does not warrant it.

Another source said, “They fought four days ago, and I was the one that separated them. I was surprised to hear that Abu had been killed. I heard that he was stabbed in his armpit. It is a delicate part of the body.”

Meanwhile, the spokesperson for the Ogun State Police Command, Omolola Odutola, confirmed the incident.

It is a case of suspected murder. I am reliably informed that it happened on the 19th of April. We received a call a few minutes before midnight from someone from one Glory Hospital that someone they didn’t know was rushed to their hospital with another person they didn’t know who was injured.

They noticed that they brought him in dead. Policemen rushed to the scene, and three suspects were arrested. During the interrogation, it was discovered that one Nafiu Yusuf, a 35-year-old male from Halleluyah quarters, was the one who organized a birthday party for his daughter and invited his friends.

Speaking further, she said, “It was while they were having the party that a fight erupted between Dada Sulaiman, a male, 32 years old, and another person. The prime suspect is one Abubakar who died.

They stabbed him in his stomach with a broken bottle based on the argument that erupted and the deceased died on the spot. He has been deposited to the hospital for autopsy. We know that cases like this cannot be handled by the division level, very soon they will be transferred.

It was caused by intoxication on a suspected substance maybe alcohol but we don’t know yet. We always warn about the dangers of people having free drinks. It is a case of anger management, temperament, and emotional intelligence. If you cannot manage alcohol, don’t drink.
