Two siblings identified as Habib and Rilwan Olapari have been arrested alongside one Peter, for allegedly killing their neighbour Taiwo Eluyemi in front of his son.
The incident occurred at 7 Taiwo Street in Mafoluku Oshodi, Lagos on April 23. The siblings had gotten into a heated argument with the deceased after he complained about the many friends they brought to his apartment to watch television.
Eluyemi reportedly settled with the boys but the siblings had other plans in mind.
The Nation reported that the siblings pretended to be fighting afterwards and axed Eluyemi from behind after he intervened and tried to broker peace.
Habib’s mother, Iya Adura who allegedly provided the axe was declared wanted by the Lagos state police alongside one Tobi, over the role they played in the murder incident. The arrested suspects have been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) Panti.
