A 28-year-old tailor, Habeeb AbdulGaniyu, has been remanded in a correctional facility in Ilorin, Kwara State for stabbing two persons to death after they prevented him and one other person from fighting.
The charge sheet reads in part: “Trouble began when Abdulganiyu and one Abdulateef Abdulrasaq started fighting over money. The two victims, Lukman and Kudus, came to separate them.
“After the fight had been stopped, Abdulganiyu rushed home and brought a knife to the scene but Abdulrasaq had already left.
“However, he saw the two people that separated him from fighting Abdulrasaq and attacked both of them on their necks with the knife leading to their instant death.”
The police explained that the defendant confessed to have stabbed the two victims on their necks.
The Magistrate, Abdulraheem Bello, adjourned the case to June 28.
