A shuttle bus driver, Philip Fiama, of Sobande Close, Alagbole, Ajuwon in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, has been reportedly stabbed to death by a co-tenant, Ikem Emmanuel.

Fiama was killed on Sunday, around 6.30 pm after confronting Emmanuel over an allegation of sleeping with his wife.

According to the report, Fiama, an indigene of Adamawa State, had called Emmanuel aside and asked why he had allegedly been sleeping with his wife, which led to a fight.

The fight, however, resulted in the killing of the deceased where Emmanuel stabbed him to death.

Fiama was said to have died on the way to a hospital within the vicinity, while the prime suspect had also fled.

The spokesperson for the Ogun State Police Command, SP Omolola Odutola, confirmed the killing while speaking to journalists on Friday.

Odutola said, “The incident happened on Sunday, January 7. A landlord from Sobande Close, Alagbole, Ajuwon, at around 8pm on that day, came to report that one Philip Fiama, a tenant, accused Ikem Emmanuel, another tenant, of having sexual intercourse with his wife.

“This was reported to have led to a fight when Ikem Emmanuel stabbed Fiama in the chest. The deceased was said to have been confirmed dead in one Tamara Hospital.

“The suspect has escaped to an unknown destination, and the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Ogun State Police Command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, for discreet investigation. The police are also on the trail of the fleeing suspect.”
