Ogun man shot dead during argument with brother

A man, Michael Adeneye, has been killed following an argument which ensued between him and his cousin, Odunayo Adeneye.

Adeneye, was reportedly gunned down by the personnel of a local security outfit known as Agbekoya, in the Ajebo area of Obafemi-Owode local government area of Ogun State on Tuesday.

A report by The Punch revealed that during the argument, the late Michael allegedly attacked Odunayo with a cutlass but was resisted by one Olowo Sule, who reportedly sustained injury from the cutlass wielded by Michael.

Following Olowo’s injury, the matter was said to be reported to a local security outfit known as Agbekoya which attempted to arrest Michael.

It was learnt from the source that while the Agbekoya personnel attempted to arrest Michael, he resisted the arrest and in the process of trying to apprehend him, one of the personnel allegedly shot him in the chest.

The source said, “The deceased tried to attack Odunayo with a sharp cutlass, but Olowo Sule intervened to rescue her. During the altercation, the deceased cut Olowo Sule’s hand with the cutlass.

“Odunayo then sought help from the Agbekoya local security outfit at Ipara, which attempted to apprehend the deceased, but he became violent.

“In the process of trying to arrest him, Osho Adeyemi (Agbekoya operative) shot the deceased in the chest, resulting in his immediate death.”

Confirming the incident on Wednesday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, disclosed that three suspects had been arrested in connection with the incident.

She added that the suspects were undergoing an investigation while stating that the body of the deceased had been deposited at the FOS morgue in the Ipara area of the state for autopsy.

“The man who reportedly shot claimed to be an operative of Agbekoya. Police operatives have gone to the scene of the crime and three suspects, Osho Adeyemi, Akala Semiu, and Odunayo Adeneye, have been arrested.

“The body of the deceased was taken to the FOS Mortuary in Ipara, Ogun State, for an autopsy. The suspects are undergoing investigation. The public will be updated with further details soon,” Odutola stated.
