But Ademola’s father, Okuneye, faulted Musa’s claims,
stressing that the son died from the beatings he received from the
former bouncer, who he described as a huge man.
He told Punch

did not approve of, adding that he warned the deceased to stop going out
with the lady.
The bereaved father said his son called him on May
3, two days before his death that he had malaria, adding that he
visited him at the workshop and found him working.
48 hours after, I got a text message from Musa asking me to call him
back urgently. I did and he simply told me that my son had passed away; I
was shocked. He said he was at Asokoro General Hospital and when I got
there, I found my son lying in the back seat of his Honda Accord car
with his face against the glass window,” he said.

suggested that the body should be buried, but he insisted on depositing
it in a morgue.
The engineer explained that after returning home,
he received a call from Precious, who narrated to him how Musa beat his
son to death.
“The girl said she
witnessed the assault and when she confronted Musa, he injured her in
the leg. I asked if she was ready to make a statement at the police
station about it and she agreed.
“Musa was arrested and he
admitted to beating my boy because he was dating the girl. We did a
post-mortem on the body and it showed that Ademola suffered serious
internal injury from the beating.
“The autopsy also showed that
the boy was sodomised; it was after this that we got to know that Musa
is a well known homosexual in Lugbe and its environs; he had been
sleeping with my son and he killed him because he was dating a woman.”

Saturday, but the police declined to grant them the permission to carry
