Man Trying to Separate Fight Stabbed to Death in Ogun State
A peacemaker, identified simply as Christian, has been stabbed to death in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, while trying to settle a quarrel over N200 bottle of beer between a beer parlour operator, Temitope Adedayo, and a customer, Taiwo Olatokunbo.
Twenty-three-year-old Olatokunbo allegedly stabbed Christian to death during the quarrel.
The suspect was said to have been arrested by operatives of the Ogun State Police Command.
Olatokunbo reportedly went to the beer parlour on Ijagun Road, Ijebu Ode, on Saturday, and ordered for a bottle of beer, but refused to pay.
Olatokunbo’s refusal to pay was said to have led to an argument with the beer parlour operator.
Christian had wanted to settle the matter.
The intervention reportedly infuriated Olatokunbo, who allegedly broke a bottle and stabbed Christian.
The victim was rushed to the Ijebu Ode General Hospital, where he died.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.
