It was learned that trouble started when the suspect
purportedly bought food from a vendor, woke his friend from sleep to eat.
His actions provoked Lukmon, who reacted by hitting Azeez
and a fight ensued.
Suspect’s account
“I did not kill him deliberately. All I did was wake him up
from sleep so that he could eat with me. I did not know it would make him angry
or degenerate to a fight, let alone lead to his death.
“What actually happened on that fateful day was that I went
to buy food from a nearby food vendor at Amuwo Odofin. When I came back my
friend Lukmon was sleeping.

was surprised, so I asked him why he was acting so weird and if he was alright.
“As if that was not enough, while I was asking him what was
wrong with him, he broke a bottle and stabbed me on my left hand.
“Immediately, I took a bottle, broke it and stabbed him on
his head.
