The Lagos State Police Command have reportedly arrested an actor for allegedly stabbing his neighbour to death in the Ikotun area of the state.
Temitayo Phillips Ogunbusola was said to have stabbed one Oladotun Johnson Opeyemi to death during an argument over electricity bill.
NEWS DIRECT gathered that the incident happened on Sunday, 17 May 2020 at No. 4, Sebil Kazeem, Cele-Egbe, Ikotun, Lagos.
According to a neighbour of the deceased and the culprit, one Banjo Lateef, the argument started when the Nollywood actor was asked to pay the N21,000 electricity bill he was owing.
Narrating the incident on social media, Lateef wrote:
“Recounting how it all started, Banjo Lateef, a fellow neighbor, said: “I’m in charge of PHCN bill for the compound and I shared the bill for April to everyone in the house and we agreed that we were going to deposit some money to avoid being disconnected.
“Temi was owing N21,500 and the neighbours suggested that his light be cut off, but I pleaded that they should allow me talk to him to see if he would deposit some money.
“I went to his apartment with another tenant, Ola, and knocked twice on his door. Temi came out in anger and bashed us for knocking on his door. He said, ‘Are you mad? Are you crazy? Are you a police officer ?.’.
“An argument ensued and we came to blow.”
