A 20-year-old man, Badmus Gbadamosi, has been accused of killing his friend and roommate, Friday Michael.
It was gathered that Gbadamosi killed 27-year-old Michael in the Mamu area of Ogun State.
The Ogun State Police Command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said late Michael saw his friend two different times while on robbery operations with his gang members.
“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.”
It was gathered that the sound of the gunshot attracted other occupants of the house, who alerted the the police.
“The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the transfer of the suspect to the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation,” Oyeyemi said.
