A peacemaker, Aminu Yusuf, has been killed during a fight between two customers in a bar around Volks, in the Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State.
Punch Metro gathered that one Jones Ogelejeme and a yet-to-be identified man were drinking at the bar when an argument ensued between the two men.
The argument reportedly degenerated into a fight, prompting 30-year-old Yusuf, who was also at the scene, to intervene.
Ogelejeme, 29, was said to have thought he wanted to join forces with his opponent, as he allegedly used a sharp object to stab Yusuf in the neck.
Some good Samaritans at the bar reportedly rushed him to a hospital, where he was confirmed dead.
A source told Punch correspondent that the incident happened around 11pm last Thursday.
He said, “Jones Ogelejeme stabbed Aminu Yusuf in the neck. He (Yusuf) was rushed to the Trust in God Hospital, in the Ira area of Ojo, for quick medical treatment; he later died.”
Punch Metro gathered that an angry mob descended on Ogelejeme and beat him to a stupor.
“He was also injured and rushed to a hospital, but he did not die.
The person that died was the peacemaker,” another source added.
The case was transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, for discreet investigation.
