The source said Ajibola confronted Akinsanya over his action which resulted in an argument whereby the suspect allegedly invited some thugs who went to attack the deceased.

“Since they were both neighbours on the same street, Ajibola approached him and questioned his action. This led to an argument and Akinsanya called some hoodlums numbering about three who came and descended on him.

He added:

He was taken to Zion Hospital in Ilepa for treatment and later referred to the State Hospital Otta on the third day. Unfortunately, he passed away at the State Hospital.”
