Following an argument over N61,950, A 30-year-old man, Oluwagbemiga Shogbola, reportedly stabbed his friend, Victor Olabiyo, to death. The money was proceeds of a business deal between them in the Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun State.
Punch reports that Shogbola, aka Oja or Federal, accused the victim of swindling him by diverting all the money.

The report claimed that fight ensued after they could not resolve amicably.
However, around 8pm on Tuesday, Shogbola was said to have posted a picture of Olabiyo on his WhatsApp status with a tag, ‘RIP’.

The suspect allegedly attacked Olabiyo around 11 pm and stabbed him to death. He is currently being detained at the state police command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta.
One of the deceased’s friends, Onyemaechi Onwuzuribe, said Shogbola was given a hot chase as he attempted to board a motorcycle to flee the scene.

On seeing his bloodstained shirt, motorcyclists were said to have turned down his request for a ride.

The suspect reportedly escaped to the Ilishan-Remo Police Station, where he turned himself in.

Onwuzuribe said, “Federal was bloodied and I saw him running away though I did not know that he had stabbed Victor (Olabiyo). I knew that they fought earlier that morning over $150 and as soon as I saw him running, I sensed that he must have done something.
“I grabbed him and just as I did, I saw people running after him and crying that he had stabbed Victor to death. That was when I and others tried to hold him, but he escaped and went to the police. If the boys had caught him, they would have lynched him.”
