It was gathered that the late Dara had a disagreement his sister which led to hot exchange of words and later resulted into a fight between them. It was during the fight that Olamide who was deeply angered, took a kitchen knife, stabbed Dara on his neck and pierced it inside. Dara fell down and bled profusely. He was rushed to the hospital but before then he had lost too much blood. He died on the way before the doctors could attend to him. Dara was only certified dead and his corpse was deposited at the mortuary for autopsy report.
The matter was reported to the police in the area; Olamide was arrested and transferred to the SCIID Panti, Yaba and charged for murder.

However, the police found her culpable and charged her before the Ebute Metta Magistrates court for murder.
The prosecutor, Inspector K. Omishakin, informed the court that the defendant was the younger sister of the victim who she used a knife to stab him to death.
The court did not take her plea and denied her bail because of the seriousness of the offence.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. A .O. Komolafe, ordered her to be remanded in prison custody and directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice.
