A 35-year-old man, Gbade Metibemu, has been arrested by the police for allegedly stabbing his tenant, Bright Abraham, to death, at Apollo Street in the Makoko area, Lagos State.
A resident, Christian Nwankwo, said that the issue between them started when the landlord started complaining about Abraham’s behavior. He also alleged that the landlord started threatening Abraham to leave or he would kill him.
Another resident, Ndubuisi Nkegba said; “Just about 10 minutes after he left us to go to bed, we heard a noise. We rushed there and saw that he had been stabbed in the chest three times by the landlord. We rushed him to the Federal Medical Centre, Yaba, where he was confirmed dead.”
The landlord was said to have gone to the Adekunle Police Station with a friend identified only as Femi, to report the incident but was later detained when Abraham’s friend stormed the same Police station and reported that Abraham was dead.
The Police spokesman, Dolapo Badmos, said the suspect had been transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation and Intelligence, Yaba.
