A 21-year-old man, Israel Oluranti, has been arrested by operatives of the Ogun State Police Command for reportedly stabbing an 18-year-old man, Farooq Olusegun, to death.
The police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed this on Wednesday said the incident occurred at Ope-Ilu part of Agbado in Ifo LGA of the State.
He said on December 25, trouble started when an argument ensued over a missing phone with the deceased accusing the suspect of taking it.
“This infuriated the suspect, consequent upon which he took one of the beer bottles around, broke it and stabbed the deceased on the chest,” Mr. Oyeyemi added. He said the victim was quickly rushed to a nearby hospital but died in the way.
