24-Yr-Old Woman, Akinbobola Olamide Murders Her Elder Brother in Lagos – “I Did It Out of Anger”
A young Nigerian woman has told the police all she knows after she reportedly murdered her elder brother in Lagos. A 24-year old woman, Miss Akinbobola Olamide who reportedly attacked and murdered her elder brother, 26-year old Dara Akinbobola, by stabbing him to death in cold blood has confessed.
According to PM Express, the incident happened at Olupebi Abijo Street, off Ijede Road in Ikorodu area of Lagos where they reside with their parents.
It was gathered that the late Dara had a disagreement with his sister which led to a hot exchange of words and later resulted into a fight between them. It was during the fight that Olamide who was deeply angered, took a kitchen knife, stabbed Dara on his neck and pierced it inside. Dara fell down and bled profusely.
He was rushed to the hospital but before then he had lost too much blood. He died on the way before the doctors could attend to him. Dara was only certified dead and his corpse was deposited at the mortuary for the autopsy report.
The matter was reported to the police in the area; Olamide was arrested and transferred to the SCID Panti, Yaba and charged for murder.
Olamide told the police that she did not wish to kill her elder brother; that she committed the crime out of anger. However, the police found her culpable and charged her before the Ebute Metta Magistrates court for murder.
The prosecutor, Inspector K. Omishakin, informed the court that the defendant was the younger sister of the victim who she used a knife to stab him to death. The court did not take her plea and denied her bail because of the seriousness of the offence.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. A .O. Komolafe, ordered her to be remanded in prison custody and directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice.
The case may be transferred to High Court if the DPP found her culpable and she may be jailed for life if she was tried and found guilty for murder.
