DSS officer allegedly stabs caretaker with dagger over electricity bill in Osun

An officer of the Directorate of State Security Service (DSS) identified as Tifase, allegedly stabbed his caretaker, Omosola Oladele after an argument over payment of an electricity bill in Osun State.


The incident happened in Tinumola area of Osogbo, the state capital on Tuesday night, August 22, 2023, when fellow neighbours reported the DSS officer to the caretaker about his nonchalant attitude to bills in the house.


According to the eyewitnesses who spoke with NIGERIAN TRIBUNE, the DSS officer stabbed the caretaker with a dagger after he asked him about payment of an electricity bill.


The 60-year-old caretaker, Oladele narrated on his hospital bed how the incident happened. 


“One of the tenants of the storey building reported to me that NEPA people came to cut light because they’ve paid the current electricity. She said that only two people, Tifase and one other person, have not paid,” he said. 


“NEPA would have disconnected the light if people didn’t intervene but he angrily told me ‘they should cut it’. One of the eyewitnesses told him he should apologise for the utterance but instead, he went inside and came out with a dagger and stabbed me,”


While narrating the incident, one of the eyewitnesses, Comrade Morounkola Tosin, said that the issue started on the 16th of August when the occupants of the house needed to pay electricity bills. 


Some people have volunteered to pay the electricity bills but what they are asking for was a refund before he came out with a dagger to stab Mr Oladele.


“We rushed Mr Oladele to hospital and I went to report the case to Dada Estate Police Station. Before I came back from the police station I met some DSS operatives who said they cannot hand him over to the police because he is their operative.” 

Hannah Dingley makes history as first female manager of a male football team in England as Forest Green appoint her caretaker manager

Hannah Dingley has become the first woman to be appointed manager of a professional men’s team in England after accepting a caretaker position at Forest Green Rovers.


It comes after the League Two club parted ways with Duncan Ferguson after just six months in charge.

Dingley has been a coach at the club for four years and helped to launch their FGR Girls Academy to develop female players.

She has a UEFA Pro Licence and previously worked for Burton Albion with their academy, as well as their first team.

Speaking about her appointment, Dingley said: “I’m really excited for this next step of my career. Pre-season has just begun, and the full season kicks off very soon.”

“It’s an exciting time in football. I am grateful for the opportunity to step up and lead such a progressive and forward-thinking club.”


Chairman Dale Vince said: “Hannah was the natural choice to be first-team interim Head Coach – she’s done a fantastic job leading our Academy and is well aligned with the values of the club.”

“It’s perhaps telling for the men’s game that in making this appointment on merit, we’ll break new ground – and Hannah will be the first female Head Coach in English (men’s) football.”
‘I’ve made the decision to leave’ –

Dingley will take charge of her first match in a friendly at Melksham Town on Wednesday, July 5.

Following their relegation from League One last season, Forest Green will begin their season in England’s fourth tier at home to Salford on August 5.



Adam Sadler has been appointed the caretaker manager of Leicester City, after Brendan Rodgers left the club on Sunday following a poor run of results which left the Foxes in the Premier League relegation zone. 

The English coach will take charge of Leicester’s next fixture against Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night, hoping for a positive result for his first game in charge.
