A 20 year old man Badmus Gbadamosi, has been arrested by the Ogun State police for killing his roommate, Friday Michael, 27, last Saturday while he was asleep.
According to reports, Badmus carried out the murder in a desperate bid to stop the deceased from informing the police he was an armed robber. The victim was said to have confronted Gbadamosi on two occasions, demanding he desist from robbery but he refused.
The incident occurred at Mamu, Awa-Ijebu, Ogun State around 6:30a.m.
The suspect said neighbours, who heard the gunshot, notified the police.
Confirming the incident, command spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi said the suspect killed his room-mate with a locally-made pistol. He said: “Investigation showed he is a member of a gang terrorising residents.”
