The police in Lagos have arrested a 42-year-old man, Alli Mustapha, for allegedly killing one of his customers, Idowu Maliki, in the Ikotun area of Lagos State. Mustapha had a shop at Imope Compound in Ikotun, where he sold petty goods to people in the community.

The Niger State indigene was alleged to have sold a stick of cigarette to the deceased on Saturday, March 7, which the latter refused to pay for. So when the victim returned to the shop some minutes later, an argument ensued between him and the suspect. In the ensuing scuffle, Mustapha hit Maliki’s head with a long stick and he slumped.

Efforts to revive him failed as he was later confirmed dead at the Igando General Hospital. In his statement to the police, Mustapaha admitted to committing the crime, adding that the deceased had first hit him. He said:
“I don’t know the man’s name, but he comes to my place to buy things. On the fateful day, he came to buy a stick of cigarette. He did not pay for it. He returned few minutes later and wanted to enter my shop. I refused to allow him. But as I tried to stop him, he took a stool and hit me with it.
Then he started looking around for other things to hit me and that was when I quickly grabbed a long stick which I usually kept in my shop to protect myself, and hit his head with it.”

It was learnt that the victim was first rushed to a private hospital, but was rejected before being taken to the Igando General Hospital. PUNCH Metro learnt that his corpse had been deposited at a morgue in Isolo.

The police arraigned Mustapha on one count of murder before an Ebute Meta Magistrate’s Court. He was remanded in prison and case adjourned till May 25, 2015.
