A 40-year-old man has been arrested by the Ogun State Police for allegedly stabbing his younger brother for bringing two life parrots into their home.
The man, identified as Olanrewaju Adeyinka who was paraded before newsmen on Thursday March 12th, confessed to stabbing his brother to death, but blamed the act on the devil.
According to him, he returned home on the fateful day to see the parrots in their home and he got into an argument with his brother after he ordered that the parrots be taken outside.
The argument escalated into a fight and in the process, he used a window louvre they broke during the fight to stab his brother.
He claimed he was about taking the broken louvre to show their neighbors when his brother charged at him and then he used it to stab him.
He said: “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. The government should just come to my aid so I can take care of the other one.”
