A 40- year old man , Olanrewaju Adeyinka , has been arrested by men of the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly stabbing his younger brother, Gabriel , to death with a window louvre for bringing two life parrots home .
Olanrewaju was paraded on Thursday alongside 48 other suspected criminals by the state Commissioner of Police , Kenneth Ebrimson, at the state command headquarters , Eleweran , Abeokuta .
The suspects were apprehended for various offences , including murder, robbery and kidnapping , among others.
While speaking with journalists , Olanrewaju said he mistakenly stabbed his brother, who brought two strange parrots into their home in the Ilaro area of the state.
The suspect explained that a fight ensued between them after Gabriel refused to take the birds out of the house .
He stated that while struggling with his brother, he pulled a broken louver and stabbed Gabriel to death.
Olanrewaju said , “ It was my brother, who brought them home , but I insisted that he should not put the birds in our house .
I asked him to take the birds away from the parlour and keep them outside and that was how a fight started between us .
“ He came to my room and started fighting me .
It was during the fight that he broke my louvers.
“ It was the broken louvers that I intended to take outside to show our neighbours when he attacked me again that I ended up using to stab him to death. ”
Olanrewaju, however, said he regretted his action , describing it as the devil’ s handiwork .
He also appealed to the government to pardon him so that he could take care of his surviving younger brother.
He added , “ I regret what I did and I can ’ t justify my action.
It is the devil’ s work; the government should assist me anyhow they want to .
“ We are three siblings and lost our parents long ago and I have mistakenly killed one .
The government should come to my aid so that I can take care of the other one. ”
