LAGOS: Customer Shot Dead By Another Customer Over Sharwama

On Friday, in the Alagbado arwea of Lagos State, a yet-to-be identified man is on the run after allegedly shooting one Kayode Oloruntoba in the stomach at a food joint.

According to reports, one Okikiola went to Avid Bar at Alagbado to buy Shawarma and called Oloruntoba to join him.

However, while waiting for the Sharwama Okikiola got involved in a heated argument with another customer on who to be served first at the spot, after which the suspect left the spot and drove off.

A few minutes later, Oloruntoba met Okikiola at the spot and while they waited for the Shawarma, the suspect reportedly returned, brought out a gun and shot in the direction of the two friends.

The bullet was said to have hit Oloruntoba in the stomach, while the suspect fled.

An eyewitness said: “He actually thought that he shot the person (Okikiola) he argued with. Unfortunately, the bullet hit the wrong person. Immediately, the suspect got back into his car and drove away.”

 Olumuyiwa Adejobi, The state Police Public Relations Officer, confirming the incident said:

 “After the shooting, his friend and witness, Kazeem Okikiola, who had earlier called Oloruntoba to join him at the Shawarma spot, refused to report the incident to the police, but rather took the deceased to a herbalist in Ogun State, where they extracted the pellets from his body.

“He later took Oloruntoba to his brother’s house in the Ipaja area of Lagos State, where he died. As a follow up to the incident, the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, directed that police detectives be mobilised to hunt the suspects linked to the killing.
