Gordon Daniel has been arrested over an
alleged attempt to kill his neighbour’s family over electric bill
disagreement. Daniel, a resident of Ajegunle, Lagos State, was accused
by Saidat Shakiru of putting ‘sniper,’ an insecticide, in a pot of soup
she was cooking on Tuesday.
It was gathered that Shakiru had left
the soup on fire, to attend to another issue, only to return and
discover that the soup reeked of sniper. She then accused Daniel, who
was the only resident of the compound at home when she was cooking.
Daniel, who blamed his actions on the devil, said
“Shakiru has been insulting me over
electricity bill. I don’t know what got over me so I decided to put
sniper inside their soup to punish her. I am sorry. I regret what I have
She insulted me so much because of the electricity bill, if not I don’t have any problem with her and her husband.”
A source at Ajegunle police station,
said Daniel will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and
Intelligence Department (SCIID), Panti.
