Man stabs friend to death over N2,000 in Lagos
The remains of 37-year-old Kamoli Isiaka, who was stabbed to death by his friend Azeez, last week, at Ololade Street at Morogbo community, have been committed to mother earth at a Muslim burial ground at Iyana Isashi. It was gathered that the late Isiaka and his friend, Azeez, had issue over N2,000 given to them by one Mr. Ololade in the neighbourhood, which led to the former being stabbed in the neck by the latter.
According to Vanguard , when their reporter visited the scene of the incident at Ololade Street in Morogbo community, the family and friends of the deceased had already gone to Badagry General Hospital to retrieve the remains for burial according to Muslim rites. Before burial, family members took the corpse to the Baale of Ayetejuesefo community in Elija, where the alleged suspect fled to after committing the crime.
According to the deceased step-brother, Alfa, “the man, whom they named the street after, gave Isiaka, and two of his friends N2,000 for a reason yet to be known. It was while they were sharing the money that Isiaka and Azeez began to fight. While people who were around tried to intervene , Azeez rushed into his house, picked a bottle, broke it and stabbed Isiaka. Immediately neighbours around tried to save isiaka’s life by taking him to the hospital, unfortunately, he died on the way due to loss of much blood.”
