Some residents and friends of the victim made a bonfire on the road as they chased away Hausa traders in the community, threatening to avenge the killing.
The police team reportedly took Adeleke’s corpse to a mortuary, while the suspect, who was saved from being mobbed to death, was taken to the Area M command.
It was gathered that the deceased had bought noodles worth N230 from the suspect’s son on Sunday around 10.30pm.
He was reported to have paid N200 and promised to pay the balance of N30 the following day, which didn’t go down well with the suspect’s son.
The son allegedly reported to his father, Adamu, who became angry and attacked 30-year-old Adeleke with a spiked plank.
The victim reportedly slumped and hit his head against the concrete edge of a gutter in the area.
The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said investigations were ongoing.
However, protest in the area continues today as some residents and friends of the victim made a bonfire on the road, chase away Hausa traders in the community, threatening to avenge the killing.
