Vanguard reliably gathered that both the victim and the convict were Okada riders and on the fateful day, Akeem had bought rice with four pieces of meat, while Basit was able to buy only two pieces.

On getting home to eat the rice, Basit took a piece of meat from Akeem which resulted into serious argument.
