The Ogun State Police Command has launched a manhunt for an Islamic cleric, identified only as Raheem, for allegedly killing a co-tenant, Monday Olaleye, aka Messiah.

The duo, who lived in a house on Adebayo Close, in the Ibafo, Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the state, reportedly had a disagreement which degenerated to fisticuffs.

 The fight, which occured on Sunday, February 11, started after 49-year-old Olaleye demanded the N60 contribution of Raheem for the replacement of a burnt electric fuse.

Olaleye was appointed by other tenants to collect funds for the purchase of the new fuse, valued at N600.

During the fight, Raheem, aka Alfa, was alleged to have hit Olaleye with a stick, while the victim used a plastic chair to fight back. Both men were reportedly injured.

The next day, Olaleye’s health condition deteriorated and he was rushed to a private hospital where he was confirmed dead.

The deceased’s family members were said to have reported the case at the Ibafo Police Station.

It was learnt that neighbours, who got wind of a possible mass arrest, fled the house.

When our correspondent visited the community on Thursday, he observed that the house had been locked up.

Residents approached  for information either declined comment or feigned ignorance of the incident.

However, a few of the runaway tenants, who spoke on condition of anonymity including a father of two, said the police locked up the house when they did not meet anyone, adding that they left with three generators belonging to tenants.

He said, “I remember the two men had a disagreement over payment for a burnt electrical fuse which was valued at N600. We are 10 tenants in the house occupying the 10 single room apartments. We divided the money and everybody was asked to pay N60.
