The incident was said to have happened in the Araromi Street, Sango-Ota area at about 11:00 p.m. on Friday.

NIGERIACRIME gathered that the man killed his 54-year-old brother because he was pestering him (Salisu) for sex.

The police alleged that following Yellow’s ceaseless demands, the younger brother was said to have drawn out a machete to end his life.

Confirming this, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, Odutola Omolola, disclosed that the corpse of Yellow had been recovered and deposited at the Ifo General Hospital Mortuary for autopsy.

“The initial investigation of the crash revealed that 23 people were involved in the crash, 11 were injured and sadly, all 6 lost their lives,” Nadabo said.
