…the brothers were said to be engaging in fisticuffs when the incident occurred
A 27-year-old man, Tunde has allegedly been killed by his brother, Ibrahim Dauda during a fight over N1,000 at their residence on Amusa Street, off Community Road, in the Obadore area of Igando, Lagos State.
The Daily Vendor learnt that Ibrahim and Tunde were at home when an argument bordering on N1,000 ensued between them.
The argument degenerated and the brothers were said to be engaging in fisticuffs when Ibrahim ran into the house and reached for an iron rod.
On returning, Ibrahim reportedly used the rod to hit Tunde’s forehead and the impact of the attack caused the 27-year-old to lose consciousness while he fell.
A source, while speaking with our correspondent, said in a bid to rescue Tunde, people rushed him to the Igando General Hospital, adding that one of the doctors on duty confirmed him dead.
The source said, “The incident happened on Sunday, January 29, 2023. Both of them were fighting over N1, 000 and in the process, one of the brothers (Ibrahim) used an iron rod to hit his brother (Tunde) on his forehead.
“People quickly rushed him to the general hospital in Igando but he was confirmed dead. His corpse was evacuated and taken to the Mainland General Hospital, Yaba, for autopsy.”
Our correspondent gathered that policemen attached to the Igando Division arrested Ibrahim.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, had yet to take his calls or reply to a text message about the incident sent to his mobile number as of the time this report was filed on Monday.
