It was gathered that the accused allegedly stabbed Segun during a heated argument between them.

Segun was reportedly rushed to a hospital, where doctors battled to save his life. He eventually gave up the ghost.

Upon hearing the news of the demise of his step-brother, Odunayo was said to have run away, but he was later apprehended by the police.

He was arraigned before the court on one count of manslaughter.

Initially, the trial was stalled due to the absence of a counsel for the accused, but one Olugbenga Adedibu later stood for him.
