22 May 2020 Entertainment
A 30-year-old Nollywood actor, Temitayo Ogunbusola, has allegedly stabbed his neighbour, Oladotun Osho, to death following a disagreement over the payment of electricity bill.
The incident happened on Sunday at No. 4 Sebil Kazeem Street in the Ikotun area of Lagos State.
Temitayo was said to have been beaten to a pulp by a mob before the intervention of policemen from the Ikotun Police Station.
The remains of the victim were deposited in a morgue for autopsy.
According to report, trouble started when a resident of the house, one Banjo, demanded the payment of the electricity bill from the other occupants.
However, Temitayo was alleged to have refused to pay his share of the bill, which led to an argument between him and Banjo.
The suspect was said to have in a fit of anger taken a dagger with which he threatened to stab Banjo.
It was gathered that Oladotun, who was coming into the compound with his brother and friend, saw Temitayo, who was searching for Banjo to stab him. When Temitayo could not find his target, he reportedly directed his aggression at Oladotun and stabbed him in the chest.
Oladotun’s sister, Ronke Akindipe, alleged that the Investigating Police Officer in charge of the case tried to cover it up by not informing the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the Ikotun Police Station because the suspect was a known face at the station.
