A statement released by Bala Elkana, spokesperson of the state police command, said on Saturday at about 2.00pm, Ekuma of No 59 Ajipon Street, Ohio, Ogun State, submitted himself to the Police in Ikorodu that he was in his shop the previous day at about 7.00pm along Sabo road by Kokoro Abu, Ikorodu, when one dry cleaner beside his shop, popularly known as Actor attacked him with iron rod as a result of an argument that ensued between them earlier in the day that was resolved by neighbours.
