A 40-year-old married man has died in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State days after he engaged a co-reveler in a brawl over a girl in a beer parlour.
The deceased, Samson Ibrahim, a father-of-three was at Lady Show, a bar in Paiko Idimu, a Lagos suburb on new year’s day with his friends.
The outing turned out to be his very last.
Samson’s subsequent trips were to Ikeja General Hospital and Ikeja Medical Centre where he was rushed to following injuries he sustained from a fight he allegedly had with one Alaba Adeshina.
Trouble started when Alaba made a pass at Samson’s girlfriend, which got the deceased angry, and in the ensuing melee, Alaba stabbed Samson with a broken bottle in his stomach which forced his intestines out.
Alaba and his elder brother, Segun Olowopejo, his step brother, Samuel Michael(pictured) and Kabiru Abdulai, all of whom went to the bar that fateful day are currently detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department , SCID, Panti.
