Osho reportedly bled to death after he was stabbed in the chest by Michael during an altercation in their residence on Mabayoje Close, Alakuko area of the state.
A 17-year-old daughter of the pastor of a church where Michael lived had accused him of sneaking to where she slept inside the church in the midnight of Thursday, September 13 and fondling her pants.
Osho’s next-door neighbour, who gave his name only as Kola, said he was in the bathroom when the fight broke out, adding that he tried in vain to caution the deceased.
“Samson (Michael) was an in-law of the pastor. His sister is the pastor’s wife. The girl in question is the pastor’s daughter from his first marriage. Samson and the girl usually sleep in the church.
“That Thursday morning, the girl told Tobiloba (Osho) that Samson touched her pants while she was asleep in the night. After a few hours, I heard Tobiloba and Samson exchanging words over the issue. I was in the bathroom. I asked Tobiloba to be patient and wait for me.
The deceased was rushed to some private hospitals in the community before he was taken to the Ota General Hospital, Ogun State, where he was confirmed dead on arrival.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba for further investigation.
