A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the two men had been friends for a long time and were both living on this street before Jimoh relocated to Sango, Ogun State, where he is staying with his family. She said three years ago, Jimoh allegedly had sexual relation with Oloyede’s wife and he was very angry about it. From that time, he started looking for a way to get back at him for betraying him. To get even, he slept with Jimoh’s first wife, but he had already divorced the woman. Oloyede was still angry and seeking opportunity for revenge.
