A 43-year-old man, Adebisi Akinrinmola who allegedly killed his rival, Ashimiyu Ademola, during an argument over his lover, Fausat, has said that it was the devil that pushed him to shoot the deceased.

The suspect was among the 43 suspects paraded by the Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, at the command’s headquarters on Friday, the PUNCH reports.

Dressed in light green ankara, Akinrinmola had been accused of killing his rival on Sunday, February 19, at Ajebo Village, Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State.

Looking sober, with the dane gun he used for the crime placed before him, the suspect alleged that Fausat was actually his wife for nine years, but she had no child for him before they ‘separated’ recently and she went into another liaison with Ademola.

He said on the fateful day, he met them on the way to the farm and an argument ensued between him and his rival.

Akinrinmola said, “It is true that an argument ensued between two of us. When we were arguing, he squeezed my cloth at the neck region and I managed to escape from him.

“He then started chasing me with cutlass. He was the one who pursued me to the farm house with a machete, where I had to reach for my dane gun and shot him to defend myself.”

“I regret my action; it was the devil that pushed me to carry out that action. I tried my best to make sure Fausat bore me a child but it did not work.”

Akinrinmola said he had a first wife who is still in Oke Oka, Ondo State and that she had five children with him. He added that the incident happened in his cocoa farm in Ijebu Igbo.
