Crime Guard gathered that Ogboru, a driver with Worldwide Commercial Ventures located in Matori area of Lagos, engaged one Jonathan Ameh, a father of three, in a fight at their residence in Gowon Estate, Okonola in Egbeda.
Trouble, as gathered by Crime Guard, started for the duo after Ogboru’s sister rushed into their one-room apartment, with her wrapper tied on her chest, and informed that one of the tenants, Jonathan Ameh, dashed into the bathroom unannounced while she was taking her bath .Irked by the tenant’s action, Ogboru was said to have gone to accost him (Ameh) in his apartment while members of his family were still awake. Time was 10pm.
An argument was said to have ensued, which degenerated into a fight, during which some curious tenants reportedly peeped from their curtains while the concerned ones came out to calm the warring parties.
Ogboru and Ameh were said to have been taken to their respective apartments by the good Samaritan tenants who also retired to their apartments, with the assumption that the dust had settled.
Barely had they settled down than another uproar was heard outside. By the time they rushed out, Ameh was reportedly found on the ground, in the pool of his blood, with a knife stuck in his heart region.
The perplexed tenants were said to have run in different directions in search of a vehicle with which to convey the dying father of three to the hospital. While that was going on, another group of onlookers were said to have held Ogboru and her sister, apparently to prevent them from escaping.
Policemen from Gowon Estate Division were immediately contacted, consequent upon which Ogboru was arrested and transferred to the SCID.
