One of the sources, who resides in the same neighbourhood as the suspect but pleaded anonymity, alleged that the pipes used in taking the ice were found in the room.

He further alleged that both the suspect and the victim took the drug before the incident happened.

According to him, a friend of the victim raised an alarm when he discovered the deceased in a pool of blood.

“We still don’t know why he killed his friend (Lekan). When we asked him, he was saying unintelligible things. Both of them are from Ede town in Osun.
