Landlord’s son stabs tenant to death over parking space in Lagos


Shonibare Oluwasegun, a 36-year-old minibus driver, was allegedly stabbed to death by his landlord’s son following an argument about parking space in the Ajah area of Lagos.

According to eyewitnesses, the father of three returned home Sunday night, November 19, 2023, and parked his minibus, also known as ‘korope’, in front of his complex on number 24 Adewunmi Close, Ilaje Ajah.

He had just gone to bed when his landlord’s son, Taiye Adebayo, reportedly beat on his door, jolting him awake.

The eyewitnesses added that the landlord’s son told the tenant to go get his minibus from where it was parked. However, the late Oluwasegun was said to have gone outside and claimed that the location was his usual parking spot.

Following an argument, Adebayo allegedly stabbed Oluwasegun in various places of his body.

Explaining how news of his death was received, the elder brother of the deceased, Shonibare Faid, said, “I got a call from a private number by 1:29 am being a Sunday morning (19th of November 2023) that my brother was dead. As early as 6:20 am, I rushed to Ajah and met my brother’s lifeless body in the pool of his blood, as he was stabbed in different parts of his body.”
