NAIJ.com gathered that a 20-year-old man murdered his roommate because he had made attempts to stop him from robbing their neighbours.
According to reports, 20-year-old Badmus Gbadamosi, killed his roommate after he warned him to either stop armed robbery or risk being exposed.
Gbadamosi shot and killed 27-year-old Friday Michael while the deceased slept at about 6:30 pm, at their house in Mamu, Awa-Ijebu in Ogun state.
He was arrested by the Ogun state police command, after some neighbours who heard the gunshot, called the police.
Neighbours claim Michael had warned Gbadamosi to stop armed robbery on two different occasions.
Speaking on the issue, the spokesman of the Ogun state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the deceased had caught the suspect twice while he was operating with members of his gang.
He said Gbadamosi killed Michael with a locally-made pistol:
“Gbadamosi is a member of a notorious gang terrorising the residents of Mamu and its environs. Michael saw him with his gang members while they were robbing some people in the area.
After the second time, Gbadamosi became uncomfortable. It was the fear that the deceased might eventually expose him that prompted him to sniff life out of Michael.
Apart from being friend, late Michael and Gbadamosi were also roommates. On May 13, 2017, at Mamu area of Ijebu, the suspect came in around 6.30pm and shot Michael, who was sleeping, with a locally-made pistol, killing him instantly.”
Oyeyemi further said:
“The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the transfer of the suspect to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation.”
