Sad! 21-year-old stabs friend to death-dailyfamily.ng

The family members of an 18-year-old, Farooq Olusegun who were very happy that their son had been given admission into The Polytechnic Ibadan, Oyo state to pursue his career in life are now in deep sorrow.

Unfortunately, the fresh student will not resume with his mates as he was murdered in cold blood by 21-year-old Israel Oluranti who stabbed him for accusing him of phone possession.

Sad! 21-year-old stabs friend to death-dailyfamily.ng

The suspect had been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command and the Ogun state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to Homicide Section of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.

It was learnt that trouble started when an argument ensued over a missing phone. Olusegun accused Oluranti of being in possession of his phone.

PUNCH Metro reports that Oluranti and Olusegun had attended a birthday party on Moshood Amao Street, Jafar, Ope-Ilu, Ogun State, with their respective friends on Christmas Eve.

It was later learnt that the two groups sat side-by-side at the event. While the party was on around 1 am on Monday, one Lekan, a dancer and Olusegun’s friend, went to the stage to entertain the gathering.

According to report he hurriedly dropped his mobile phone with somebody while going on stage, but could not recognize the person when he returned to his seat.
As Lekan was searching for his Lenovo phone, Olusegun claimed that he saw Oluranti collected it – an allegation the suspect denied, leading to an altercation between him and the deceased.

The deceased’s close friend, Damilola Rotimi, told PUNCH correspondent that he was sleeping when some people from the event knocked on his door around 3 am and informed him of the chaos.
He said, “On getting to the party, the phone had been found on him (Oluranti) upon Farooq’s (Olusegun) insistence. As people chided him, he became violent, smashed the bottle of the beer that he was drinking on his own head and attempted to stab Lekan.

“Lekan dodged the attack, but he stabbed Farooq in the chest and fled with his friends. One of our friends, Tobi, went after him and he was caught. Tobi was injured while trying to apprehend him.

“At the party, we looked for a car or motorcycle to take Farooq to a hospital without success.

“It was the brother of the host that helped us to get a wheelbarrow which we used to take him to a health centre around the venue. The health centre referred him to a private hospital, Osana. When we got there, they said the doctor was not around. We took him to Noble Hospital, where he was confirmed dead on arrival.

“We are childhood friends. He was supposed to resume at The Polytechnic, Ibadan, in January.”
Olusegun’s uncle, Kolawole Abiola, said his graduation from a vocational centre as a photographer was slated for next month. He said the family was devastated by the incident.

“He wanted to study Business Administration at The Polytechnic Ibadan. He was living in a detached apartment in his parents’ compound. Somebody came to wake him up that night to attend the party. The parents were shocked when they were informed about his death in the morning,” he added.

However, Oluranti, an electrician, denied stealing the phone and claimed that it was one, Sunday who killed Olusegun.

The native of Abeokuta, Ogun State, said, “I was going to buy food around 11 pm on Sunday when I saw Egbon (brother) KB. He said he had been looking for me so we could attend a Christmas Eve party together.

“While we were there with Sunday, Lekan and his friends came and they sat beside us. We drank and had fun.

“When Lekan was going on stage to dance, he did not know who he gave his phone to. He came back and started looking for his phone. I told KB that I wanted to go home and he stood up to see me off.

“Farooq pointed at somebody, accusing him of stealing the phone, but his friends thought he meant KB. I cautioned them as they wanted to attack KB. They beat me up and KB smashed a bottle on the floor. Farooq (Olusegun) also did the same and stabbed me in the head. Sunday stabbed Farooq.

“As his friends tried to attack us, I smashed a bottle. KB and Sunday ran away. I did not know about the stolen phone. The phone was eventually found on a friend of Lekan.”

Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims it would “convincingly” win the next gubernatorial election in Anambra and the presidential election in 2023.

John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”

“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.
