A tailor identified as Samson Onome, has been arrested for allegedly chopping off his neighbour, Wale Badejo’s left hand and inflicting injuries on his head at Ilasan Housing Estate, Ajah, Lagos State, Nigeria.
It was gathered that Badejo was at a lotto centre, last Wednesday, when a row arose between him and some gamblers. The argument worsened and Badejo reportedly destroyed some items in the lotto shop.
After failed attempts to prevail on him to stop the trouble, a resident was said to have invited Onome to confront Badejo. On getting to the shop, Onome reportedly confronted Badejo, resulting in a fight during which both men exchanged blows.
A resident, who identified himself as Emmanuel, said Onome later fled from the scene, but Badejo gave him a chase. At a point, Onome ran into his room and Wale followed him.
Wale charged into Samson’s room with a bottle. Samson also brought out a cutlass, hacked him on the head and chopped off his left hand.
