36 Year Old Motorcyclist Allegedly Stabbed By Soldier In Ogun State

Abiola Odedeji, a power-drunk Nigerian soldier allegedly stabbed a 36-year-old okada rider (commercial motorcyclist), Niyi James, aka Emi-Ero, to death.

LateNightGist.com gathered that the soldier had visited his girlfriend, Amanda David, at Agbado Junction around 3.30pm on Thursday, July 27, in company with his colleague, Damilare Oni.
The soldiers went to Agbado, Ogun state on a power bike. Shortly after a discussion, Odedeji and his girlfriend decided to go out on the motorbike.
He was said to have stopped Niyi, who shuttled between the junction and Agbado Crossing, to take Oni to Ijaiye, Lagos state.
An eyewitness, identified as Akinjobi said that the 36-year-old native of Ikogosi, Ekiti state, declined on the grounds that he did not have a ticket to operate in the Ijaiye area.
Akinjobi said: “The soldier (Odedeji) was angry that the okada rider said no to a military man and started flogging him with a horsewhip. Suddenly, he brought out a long knife and stabbed the man on the thigh.
“He also stabbed him on the waist and stomach. He was so confident that he robbed off the bloodstains on the knife on the man’s head. He boasted that he had killed many people. He and his colleague escaped on the power bike, while the lady took another motorcycle. We quickly alerted the police.”
A team of policemen, led by CSP Sunday Omonijo, the Agbado Divisional Police Officer, immediately went after the suspects.
A source said the soldier's girlfriend was apprehended on Clem Road, Ijaiye, while the soldiers were chased to Mosalasi bus stop by policemen, adding that she had invited Odedeji to intervene in a N25,000 business transaction involving her and a customer.
Kolawole James, the elder brother to the deceased said the family had lost a breadwinner, demanding that Niyi’s killer should be brought to justice.
ASP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Ogun state Police Public Relations Officer, who confirmed the incident, said the suspects would be charged to court after investigations had been concluded.
