A man, identified only as Asunmo, has been detained at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba, Lagos State, for allegedly killing a driver, Sodiq Fatai.
We learnt that Asunmo stabbed Fatai to death with a knife at the White Sand area of Ijora Badia, during a scuffle over a prostitute.
The suspect was said to have challenged the victim over his relationship with the lady, whom he (Asunmo) was dating.
Despite his denial, Asunmo was alleged to have attacked the victim and fled the area.
A community leader, who did not want to be identified, said his attention was called to Asunmo’s corpse, which was abandoned on a heap of refuse in the area.
He said, “I was told that the two men fought and one stabbed the other to death. The police from the Ijora Badia came to take the corpse away.”
When our correspondent approached other residents, they said they were informed by friends.
