Bus Driver Murders Colleague After Losing Baby, Dumps Body In Motor Park
A driver identified simply as Wasiu has been found dead in a motor park in Lagos.
According to Punch Metro, the body of the deceased was dumped in a motor park around midnight on Monday.
The driver, who reportedly plied the Ishaga-Fagba route, had a confrontation with a colleague from another park on Sunday, which resulted in a fight between them.
An eye witness who insisted on anonymity said:“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.”
The baby reportedly died which led to the father Ikman to mobilize his colleagues and attacked Wasiu with weapons until he became unconscious.
However, Punch correspondent who saw the deceased body noted that that there was no mark of violence on the body, except the swollen face.
Another source said: “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.”
The body was later taken to the police.
When the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin was contacted he said he was not aware of the incident.
