The police in Ogun state have arrested a 40-year old man, Olanrewaju Adeyinka, for allegedly stabbing his younger brother, Gabriel, to death with a window louvre for bringing two life parrots into their home in the Ilaro area of the state.
Olanrewaju who was paraded before newsmen on Thursday, March 12, confessed to the crime but said it was a mistake and the handiwork of the devil.
According to him, he returned home on the fateful day to see the parrots in their home and he got into an argument with his brother after he ordered that the parrots be taken outside. The argument degenerated into a fight and in the process, he used a window louvre they broke during the fight to stab his brother.
He claimed he was about taking the broken louvre to show their neighbors when his brother charged at him and then he used it to stab him.
He asked the police to have mercy on him as he never intended to kill his brother.
