Man making stabs co-tailor to death
A tailor, Afeez Ayodele, has been arrested by men of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly stabbing his co-worker, identified simply as Obiora, to death on the United Estate, in the Sangotedo area of Ajah.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the company, where Ayodele and Obiora were working, was awarded a contract to make face masks to be supplied to residents to limit the spread of the coronavirus in the state.
While doing their job, it was learnt that Ayodele and Obiora started arguing over whose turn it was to use a particular sewing machine.
The argument degenerated into a fight and in the ensuing scuffle, it was learnt that Ayodele, who became annoyed by Obiora’s refusal to relinquish the machine to him, suddenly brought out a knife and allegedly stabbed him in the chest.
It was gathered that blood started gushing out from Obiora’s chest and he fell to the ground, but some good Samaritans, including neighbours, rushed to his rescue and took him to the Safe Way Hospital for treatment.
But the victim did not die on the spot; he was rushed to hospital but died on the way. Obiora’s family are aware of the incident.”
