The police in Ogun State have arrested a 20-year-old man, Badmus Gbadamosi, for allegedly killing his room-mate. Gbadamosi was said to have shot dead Friday Michael, 27, last Saturday while he was asleep.
The incident occurred at Mamu, Awa-Ijebu, Ogun State around 6:30a.m. The suspect killed his room-mate to stop him from informing the police he was a robber. A source said the deceased confronted Gbadamosi on two occasions to desist from following robbers, but he refused.
He said neighbours, who heard the gunshot, notified the police. Confirming the incident, command spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said the suspect killed his room-mate with a locally-made pistol. He said: “Investigation showed he is a member of a gang terrorising residents.”
