15-year-old boy beats 26 year old neighbour to death
“I was returning from Arabic school at about 5pm that day. The plate I used in taking food to school fell from my hands. I picked it up and went to a shop close by to clean it up.
“There was a table in front of the shop; so, I hit the plate on the table to remove the sand inside the plate. Johnson (Adeboye) was in front of the shop, and he told me that I was making a noise with it.
“I told him I was only trying to clean up the sand in the plate. He asked me if I was mad, that why should I be talking to him like that. I responded and told him I was not mad. He warned me that if I continued to talk back at him, he would beat me up. I ignored his threat and walked home.”
“Johnson came from behind and started beating me. Some people around separated us and he left, but he returned some minutes later to A$$ault me again.
“People separated us for the second time, but he went to call one of his friends. Both of them started A$$aulting me.
“It was at this point that I felt the urge to defend myself. I picked a stick on the ground and hit Johnson on the h£ad. Immediately, he fell and became unconscious. Neighbours gathered and rushed him to the hospital. But it was too late as he was already dead,” he added.
