One Habeed Kasali has been arrested for allegedly killing a man he suspected of having an affair with his wife in honeypotwu, Ogun State.
A 35-YEAR-OLD man Habeed Kasali has been apprehended by police for allegedly killing his kinsman he suspected of having an affair with his wife.
It was gathered that Kasali had on several occasions accused Bamidele of sleeping with his wife, an accusation the deceased was said to have refuted.
Kasali reportedly confronted Bamidele once again on Saturday which caused a quarrel between them. A fight soon ensued and the suspect allegedly brought out a pair of scissors with which he stabbed the deceased in the neck, chest and face.
Police spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said the incident was reported at Igbesa Police Division by a family member of the deceased.
“They are both natives of Totowu. The incident occurred on Saturday. The suspect confronted the deceased that he was having an affair with his wife despite several warnings and it led to a fight.
“In the process, the suspect used scissors to stab the deceased several times on his chest, eye and neck which made Bamidele to lose consciousness. He was immediately rushed to Crest Hospital at Isuti Road in Egan, Lagos but was confirmed dead by the doctor.
“Having realised that the victim had died, the suspect took to his heels, but the DPO Igbesa SP Abayomi Adeniji quickly dispatched his detectives to go after him and he was eventually arrested where he ran to.
“The body of the deceased has been recovered to Ota General Hospital Mortuary for autopsy. The Commissioner of Police Kenneth Ebrimson has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for further investigation and prosecution,” said Oyeyemi.
