A 23-year-old sales boy, Akeem Tajudeen, was on Monday, brutally stabbed to death in Ilaje Otumara, in the Iponri area of Lagos State, by one Abeeb, who claimed Akeem came to a birthday party on Saturday in the neighbouring Olokodana area, when he was not invited.

It was gathered that Akeem, who hailed from Ilorin, Kwara State, was killed around 9pm, by Abeeb, who with his gang trailed him to his house and punished him for daring to come to their party by using a knife to stab him to death.

According to the report, there was tension in the area as the hoodlums also injured two other youths before fleeing the community.

The matter was said to have been reported at the Iponri Police Division.

A manhunt had been launched by the police for the runaway Abeeb, whose parents had also fled from their house to evade arrest.

A resident, who did not want his name in print, told PUNCH that the deceased’s offence was that he attended a birthday party in a gangsters’ area.

According to his statement: “The party Akeem and his friends went for was on Saturday in Olokodana. At the party, Abeeb, one Austin and other hoodlums challenged them for attending the birthday party, but they settled it and left.

“But on Monday, the same Abeeb went to Ilaje Otumara, and started a fight with some boys. Akeem was spotted and Abeeb stabbed him with a knife in the chest, saying he gatecrashed their party on Saturday. The boy slumped and was left in a pool of blood.

“We tried to arrest Abeeb, but he stabbed two other youths before he escaped.

“When policemen from Iponri came, Abeeb and his gang members had escaped from the scene. His parents have also relocated due to fear of arrest.”

Akeem’s father, Tajudeen Owonikoko, an inter-state driver, said he received the sad news on the telephone while at work.

He added that the police should fish out the killer of his son and bring him to justice.

He said, “Akeem is my only son. He was not a troublesome boy. I was at work on Monday when they called me that someone had stabbed him to death.

“My wife has been hospitalised since that Monday. I want the police to arrest the killer of Akeem. I want him to be brought to justice because he has thrown my family into mourning.”
