DSS Personnel Allegedly Stabs Estate Agent Over Electricity Bill

A personnel of the Department of State Security (DSS), Abiodun, has stabbed an estate agent, identified as Dele Omosola, in the Tinumola area of Dada Estate, in Osogbo, Osun State, over electricity bill.

The agent had approached the personnel, who lived in a building he is managing, on Tuesday night, to inquire about his failure to offset his electricity bill, but it generated a tense argument.

According to Vanguard, the security personnel was said to be returning from work when Omosola confronted him about the payment, and he walked away from the scene.

However, the elderly agent insisted he must answer questions, which led to a fight before the DSS operative stabbed the victim in the thigh.

According to a resident, Morounkola Tosin, the agent had asked why he had not paid his bill for August, and the security operative responded that he had been paying before, which got the agent angry.

“But before anyone realised what was going on, the DSS guy went into his apartment took a jack-knife and stabbed the agent. We took the man to a hospital for treatment and reported the matter to the police. However, some DSS operatives took the suspect into custody and vowed not to release him to the police”

However, another neighbour within the apartment who pleaded anonymity disclosed that Abiodun tried to avoid the incident as he walked out of the agent, but the man insisted he must reveal where he works because other tenants were complaining about his late arrivals.

The source said, “Yes, the issue started with electricity bill, but genuinely, the agent was trying to extract information about his workplace, as the guy was too secretive and other tenants were suspecting him, hence, the situation escalated into a fight before the agent was stabbed”

Meanwhile, the victim said he only asked the suspect for electricity bill and rather than pay the money, he went in, brought a jack-knife and stabbed him.

He said, “I have been asking him to pay up his bill for days, he promised to pay, but yesterday (Tuesday) when I asked him, rather give me the money, he went in came back with a jack-knife and stabbed me”

In an interview, a DSS source said it was a two-fighting incident, and the personnel’s life was endangered by residents and the agent suspecting him of being an armed robber or cultist.

The source said, “I can confirm to you that the personnel is presently in detention for involving in public fight, however, the victims along with other tenants ganged up against him simply because they are oblivion of his job and his movement, thereby endangering his life at the moment, he was over-powered and needed to rescue himself from a powerful aggressor, hence, he decided to stab him on the thigh.”
