The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a resident of Shobowale Street in the Alagbado area of the state, Victoria Alaba, for allegedly killing the wife of her landlord during a scuffle.
Punch Metro learnt that the deceased, Mrs. Amosa Ogunyemi, had ordered Alaba and other tenants not to wash dirty clothes at a section on the premises as the compound was being messed up.
It was said that the suspect ignored the order and was washing on the premises on Saturday when Ogunyemi approached her and told her to vacate the spot.
Reports gathered that Alaba declined the directive, causing an altercation between the two…..
A source close to the family told Punch Metro that Alaba, said to be in her 30s, pounced on the deceased and beat her up, while another resident said they engaged in a scuffle during which Ogunyemi gave up the ghost.
It was learnt that the landlord’s wife, who was said to be in her late 50s, was rushed to a hospital in the area, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
The source, who declined to mention his name, said, “The landlord’s wife had warned on several occasions that tenants should stop washing clothes at the spot, but Victoria (Alaba) did not listen. On Saturday, she chose to wash her dirty clothes at the spot again. The landlord’s wife walked up to her and told her to leave the spot. She refused and they started exchanging words.
“She pounced on Amosa (Ogunyemi) and pushed her to the ground. The woman became unconscious and was rushed to a nearby hospital, but she died. The tenant has been arrested by policemen from the Alagbado division.”
However, a resident of the area, who identified himself simply as Adamu, said the argument between the two women led to a fight.
“I was not there, but I was told that it was a fight and the woman (Ogunyemi) was overpowered by the tenant. She died in the process,” he added.
Other residents approached by Punch correspondent, who visited the neighbourhood on Wednesday, refused to speak on the issue.
In the deceased’s residence, a one storeyed-building, some sympathisers gathered under a tent outside, while others were with the husband of the late woman in a living room.
The distraught widower and a relative said the matter had been amicably resolved and called one of the deceased’s children, identified as Kazeem, to speak to Punch.
The son told Punch Metro that the family members were not interested in taking any legal action against the suspect, adding that his mother had been buried according to Islamic rites.
He said, “We have resolved the matter and the police have released her corpse to us. We don’t have any comment on how the incident happened. All we are going to say is that everything is settled. Thank you.”
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident in a text message, adding that the suspect was transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba, for further investigation.
She said, “The Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has ordered the case to be transferred to the SDCI for discreet investigation. The name of the tenant is Victoria Alaba while that of the deceased is Amosa Ogunyemi.”

We Must Get You – Police Tells Senator Dino Melaye
The Nigeria Police has vowed to arrest Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West at the Senate. Mr Melaye had earlier in the day raised alarm of a police seige laid at his Abuja residence.
Moments after raising the alarm, the Police forcefully gained access to his compound and has continued with the siege. The police personnel believes the lawmaker is in the building despite denial from Melaye.
Stating its reason for the siege, the Police in a statement from its spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, said the Senator is wanted in connection to an alleged attack on a police personnel.
“The Police operatives currently in the residence of Senator Dino Melaye are to effect his arrest to answer to the case of attempted culpable homicide on the shooting of a Police Officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state,” the statement from Moshood said.
“The above offence was committed by Senator Dino Melaye and his armed thugs in Kogi State on the 19th July, 2018 when they shot and wounded a police officer, Sgt Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force (PMF) while on duty at a stop and search point along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi state.
“The Police Officer is yet to recover from the gunshot injury he sustained during the attack and still under intensive medical care. “The Police investigators have written the Clerk of the National Assembly for Senator Dino Melaye to report at Kogi State Police Command, CIID, Lokoja for him to answer to these offences against him under investigation in Kogi State Police Command but he has bluntly refused to report himself to the Police.
“The Police operatives will continue to be in wait at the residence of Senator Dino Melaye until he surrenders himself for arrest. The offence for which Senator Dino Melaye is being investigated is capital in nature and not compoundable.
“The Force will not tolerate attack on its personnel by any individual no matter how highly placed. The law must take its course,” it added. Melaye and the police have had a running battle since the senator was named by suspects in a murder case.
The latest development comes days after the lawmaker hinted of plans to abduct and inject him to death.
