Chaos marred a local bar in Oshodi, Lagos State after a man confronted his friend for allegedly secretly sleeping with his girlfriend. The attacker was identified as Segun Afuye who confronted his friend named Elewure Sodiq for the issue.
Afuye reportedly stabbed Sodiq in the neck with a bottle at the bar in an exchange that likely turned ugly. The latter died on the spot. The girlfriend of Afuye that sparked the confrontation was only identified as a certain Kafayat. She has yet to be properly identified.
However, Afuye did not get off easily. The incident angered the crowd at the bar and chaos ensued. The 35-year-old man was beaten badly and Afuye died even before local police authorities arrived at the scene.
The incident comes roughly more than a week where a 17-year-old teenage girl stabbed her brother to death for questioning her move to Ondo. Identified as Biletiri Idowu Ruth, the teenager allegedly stabbed her older brother – Kehinde Joshua Biletiri – on Mar. 19 at their home situated in the Igbokoda area of Ondo State. The girl had just come home at the time after spending the night somewhere else.
It appears that an argument happened first before things turned ugly. The older brother questioned the moves of the 17-year-old and asked her where she spent the night. With the exchange growing fierce, the girl allegedly picked up a knife and then stabbed his older brother. Kehinde was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Ruth is now under police jurisdiction as a result of the incident.
