Feb 16, 2015 – Man Killed Neighbour In Okun Ajah Ogombo Lagos Over Generator Fumes

A bricklayer has been arrested for hacking his neighbour to death in Lagos.

29-year-old Ibrahim Tijani murdered a 57-year-old carpenter in Okun Ajah area of Ogombo Lagos last week over an argument that started when he turned on his generator around 11am.

On the day of the murder, the deceased, a married father of two complained to the suspect that fumes from his generator had leaked into his room.

An argument that started over the generator fume was said to have degenerated into a fight and in the ensuing brawl, the suspect picked a cutlass from his room and cut the victim in the hand and leg.

This is what the suspect who hailed from the ancient city of Ibadan told police

“On Sunday, I turned on my generator and when Baba Ade (Okanla) asked me to turn it off, I refused. Then he used a stick to hit me and we started fighting.

“A neighbour came and separated us and asked me to sit down beside him. But Baba Ade still went and destroyed my generator. I became angry and went inside my house and picked my cutlass. I used it on him.”

The uncompleted building where the murder happened was owned by a US-based Nigerian.

The case has been transferred to SCID for investigation.

    May god forgive him and let him remain in jail for killing this father of 2. Why should anger results in this by picking up cutlass. Is Baba Ade an animal. Sad. What was in his brain when he picked up that cutlass. Is he mental? Simple little issue that can be resolve has resulted to the dead of a human beings.

    Fumes generator going to another person room not good. Is Carbon Monoxide and can lead to lungs cancer and other breathing problems. He was angry in that manner how does he expect this man to sleep.

    Nigeria govt please do something with Nepa so that the usage of generator should seize completely.

    So Ibrahim remain sorry for you. I hope police handle the matter very well.
