A 40-year old man, Olanrewaju Adeyinka, is cooling his heels in a police cell after he allegedly stabbed his younger brother, Gabriel, to death with window louvre for bringing two life parrots home.
The Ogun State Police Command’s Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, on Thursday paraded Olanrewaju, alongside 48 other suspected criminals at the state headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta for committing offences ranging from murder, robbery, kidnapping, among others.
Olanrewaju said he mistakenly stabbed his brother who reportedly brought two strange parrots to their home in Ilaro area of the state to death.
The suspect explained that a fight ensued between him and his younger brother after he refused to take the birds out of the house.
He further explained that while he was struggling with his brother, he (Olanrewaju) pulled a broken Louvre and stabbed his brother to death.
“It was my brother that brought birds home, but I insisted that he should not put the bird inside our house.
“I asked him to take the birds from the Parlour and keep it outside and that was when a fight started between us.
“He came to my room and started fighting me. It was during the fight that he broke my louvres.
“It was the broken louvres that I intended to take outside so as to show our neighbours when he started fighting me again that I ended up using to stab him to death.”
Adeyinka, however, said he regretted his action, describing his action as devil’s handiwork.
He also appealed to the government to pardon him so that he could take care of the remaining younger brother.
“I regretted what I did and I don’t have anything to justify my action.
“It is the devil’s work, the government should assist me anyhow they want to assist me.
“We have lost our parents for long, we are three siblings and I have mistakenly killed one. Government should just come to my aid so I can take care of the other one.”
Meanwhile, the state commissioner of police said the command has arrested 48 suspected robbers, cultists, kidnappers, fraudsters, murders among others.
Ebrimson said the command has succeeded in smashing many criminal gangs and recovering several arms and ammunition across the state.
The Police boss disclosed that the command also arrested fake immigration officers while trying to defraud a company around Sagamu area of the state.
“On the 10th of March 2020, four men namely Emeka Ibeh Anyawu, James Chibubueze Okocha, Moses Micheal and Oyekunle Adeoye went to Hotmak Company along Shagamu/Benin Express road Odogbolu and presented themselves to the expatriate there as officers of Nigeria Immigration service with an intent to defraud them of huge sum of money.
“Unfortunately for them, the policemen on duty at the company quickly intervened and discovered that the four men were not from Nigeria Immigration service and they were promptly arrested.”
Ebrimson further said the Police officers in the state intercepted one hundred and forty-three live cartridges from an unregistered motorcycle in Idofa Oke Agbede area of the state.
The Commissioner of Police, however, vowed to make the state unconducive for the criminals to operate.
He further said,
“On our part, we are going to do everything possible within the ambit of the law to make the State unconducive for criminals in order to allow law-abiding citizens go about their lawful businesses without fear of any form of harassment or intimidation.”

On enquiry, Oyeyemi informed that the police discovered that “the suspect put a knife on fire and when the knife was red-hot, he applied it to the buttock of the young boy thereby inflicting a second degree injury on the innocent boy.”
