He described the deceased as an inspirational leader.

Wife of the deceased, Ebunoluwa, described her late husband as a pillar of support and upholder of values and shared heritage.

Mimiko said, “He is a quintessential and patriotic Ondo son. He was loved by everybody. He was everybody’s friend across all age groups and social strata. He was a good man.”
Anani stabbed Bademosi thrice on the chest on October 31 – three days after he was employed.
He was said to have sneaked into the deceased’s room to perpetrate the act moments after the victim’s wife left the house to keep up with an appointment.
