The lifeless body of a man identified as Wasiu Wasiu, a bus driver, has been found near a motor park in the Berger area of Lagos State.

According to The PUNCH, Wasiu got into an altercation with a colleague on Sunday and it turned violent. Feeling overpowered, and in a state of anger, Wasiu allegedly picked a bottle from a nearby restaurant, shattered it and aimed at his opponent.

“Wasiu picked a fight with someone at the park and went to pick a bottle. But when he smashed it on the ground, the broken pieces hit the baby of a nearby alcohol seller; the little child started bleeding,” an eyewitness was quoted to have said.

Upon learning of the girl’s death, the father, identified simply as Ikman, attacked Wasiu, beating him until he became unconscious, FIJ learned.

“Ikman was a close friend to Wasiu. He also drives a commercial bus plying the Berger-Obalende route. Wasiu would not have died, but Ikman deliberately left him unconscious on the floor after the attack without any attempt to revive him,” another source was quoted to have said.

Despite the pleas of colleagues to bring the body to the family, the police reportedly took his remains with them.

FIJ made several calls to SP Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos State police spokesperson, but they were not answered. A message sent to him had also not been responded to at press time.
