One teenager named Daniel Akindele has been arrested after allegedly stabbed his friend, Ayo Bameke, to death during a fight over food at Abattoir Complex in the Agege area of Lagos State.
Reports have it that the duo and their friends visited the complex as usual.
Bameke was said to have left his friends to buy food.
He later returned to meet his friends at the complex and was said to be eating when Akindele, who was also hungry, requested to share in the food.
The request reportedly created an argument that degenerated into a scuffle between the two friends.
During the scuffle at the front of the Harmony Abattoir Management Services Limited, Bameke allegedly used a pair of scissors to injure Akindele.
A security guard with the company, Segun Ijaola, while speaking to reporters during a visit to the scene, said Akindele overpowered Bameke, collected the scissors, and stabbed him in the chest.
He said, “The teenagers were four in number and between the ages of 14 and 15 years. They are always together. Around 11am on that Saturday morning, they were in front of the Harmony Abattoir Management Services Limited. One of our female workers was on her way out to get something at the slab when she saw one of the boys (Bameke) lying on the ground.
