A bricklayer who allegedly killed his friend has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command.
It was learnt that Demola Wasiu, an indigene of Ede, Osun State, stabbed the Ogun State indigene Lekan Omotosho, 27 in the armpit after he refused to charge his phone for him.
The victim was said to have lost a lot of blood before he was rushed to the Lagos Island General Hospital, where he died on Friday.
The suspect, who was arrested by policemen from the Lion Building division, was later transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation, Yaba.
It was gathered that Omotosho was an apprentice in a mechanic workshop on Ajele Street, Lagos Island. He was said to have come to Lagos from Mowe, Ogun State, three months ago.
It was revealed that the suspect, who had a bottle of beer in his hand, smashed it on the floor and stabbed Omotosho in the armpit after the fight broke out.
The victim’s parents had arrived from Ogun State to recover the corpse from the police after autopsy.
The Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Damasus Ozoani, confirmed the incident, adding that investigations were ongoing.
