Boy stabs friend to death during street soccer

The Lagos State Police Command is on the trail of a boy, who stabbed an opponent to death during a football match in Okota area of the state.

Michael Tango, 18, was reportedly, on Monday afternoon, stabbed in the hand by Kayode Babayanju, during the match. He was said to have died on the way to the hospital, where he was rushed to by neighbours, who saw him bleeding.

It was gathered that Babayanju and Michael were two of the footballers, playing along Oseni Laide Street in Okota area of the state, when a misunderstanding happened amongst them. The misunderstanding reportedly resulted in a clash between the deceased and his killer, who allegedly broke a bottle and stabbed Michael.

A resident of the area, Ifeanyi, while speaking with Lagos Metro said, “it happened around 3:00p.m. The death is still a surprise to all of us. Michael might have died as a result of loss of blood as he died on the way to the hospital. He was not taken to the hospital on time.”

The image maker in charge of the state police command command, Dolapo Badmos, while confirming the incident to Lagos Metro, stated that, “the corpse had been deposited at the Isolo General Hospital, while efforts were on to arrest the fleeing suspect.”
