Musa was said to have engaged in homosexual activity with Ademola and has been arraigned before a Federal High in Gwagwalada Abuja, facing a homicide charge.
According to Punch’s report, It was gathered that the autopsy of his 24-year-old apprentice revealed that Ademola died as a result of Musa’s beatings.
The autopsy reports also revealed that the apprentice had been sodomised by Musa frequently before his death.
In his statement to the Police, Musa said he slapped the deceased after he caught him having sex with a lady simply identified as Precious, in his workshop. He further claimed that he died a week after contracting Malaria.
Speaking on the perceived cause of his son’s death, Ademola’ s father, Okuneye, faulted Musa’ s claims. He said that his son died due to the beatings he received from the former bouncer whom he referred to as a huge man

Okuneye said Musa had told him about Ademola dating a lady he did not approve of. He also said he instructed the deceased to desist from going out with the lady in question.
On May 3, Okuneye said his son called to inform him that he had malaria, adding that he visited him at the workshop and found him working.
However the unexpected happened.
“About 48 hours after, I got a text message from Musa asking me to call him back urgently. I did and he simply told me that my son had passed away; I was shocked. He said he was at Asokoro General Hospital and when I got there, I found my son lying in the back seat of his Honda Accord car with his face against the glass window, ” he said.
Okuneye, who is also an engineer said Musa informed him that his son had died of malaria, adding that he should be buried instantly, but he insisted that his corpse should be deposited in the mortuary.
On returning home Okuneye got a call from Precious, who narrated what she witnessed to be the cause of her lover’s death. She said Musa beat his son to death.
Reporting what she said, Okeneye said.
“The girl said she witnessed the assault and when she confronted Musa, he injured her in the leg. I asked if she was ready to make a statement at the police station about it and she agreed.
“Musa was arrested and he admitted to beating my boy because he was dating the girl. We did a post-mortem on the body and it showed that Ademola suffered serious internal injury from the beating.
“The autopsy also showed that the boy was sodomised; it was after this that we got to know that Musa is a well-known homosexual in Lugbe and its environs; he had been sleeping with my son and he killed him because he was dating a woman.”
The family of the deceased had planned to conduct the funeral last Saturday, but according to Punch’s report, the plans were stopped.
The court has remanded the accused in the Kuje prison and has adjourned the case until November 20 for further hearing.
