Written by on October 9, 2023

Edo State Police Command has arrested a 21-year-old man, Ononomeh Badamasi, for allegedly killing one Mr. Orumidayo Awolowo in Igarra, Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of the state. Spokesperson of the command, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, said the suspect was arrested by the Igarra police division following a complaint from the brother of the deceased, one Obafemi Awolowo.  According to the PPRO, trouble started when the 52-year-old deceased demanded money for the knife he sold to the suspect. Nwabuzor disclosed that Obafemi told the police that the suspect bought a knife from the deceased and failed to pay the money, adding that upon demanding his money, a fight broke out between the duo. The suspect and the deceased engaged in fighting over nonpayment of a knife the suspect purchased from the deceased at Ogbeh Community and in the process, Orumidayo fell down and died, the PPRO stated. He said the police stormed the scene and discovered that three houses and one motorcycle were set ablaze by angry youths as a result of the incident. Nwabuzor said the suspect confessed to the crime, adding that the corpse of the deceased was taken to Igarra General Hospital Mortuary for autopsy. He noted that investigation has commenced on the matter and the suspect would be charged to court soon. The post Police arrest 21-year-old man for allegedly killing trader in Edo appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
