Man Stabs Colleague To Death Over Cake In Lagos
A misunderstanding over touching a cake baked by his friend has led to the death of Onyeka Jackson, who was reportedly stabbed to death by his colleague, Daniel Okorie, in Iyana Isashi area of Lagos, on May 24.
It was gathered that after the close of work on the said day, Onyeka trailed the 26-year-old Daniel to his house at 102, Iyana-Isashi area, over the misunderstanding caused by the cake-touching incident.
He then banged on Daniel’s door until he opened and an argument ensured, which later degenerated into fisticuffs at a nearby bus stop.
Vanguard reports that on arrival to the scene of the incident at Iyana Isashi, traces of dried blood were still visible on the ground, leading to the suspect’s apartment.
A neighbour (names withheld) who spoke to Vanguard, said: “Sincerely, I do not know what the bone of contention was. But we saw the two of them quarrelling and later they started fighting. “Before people could separate them, Daniel had stabbed Jackson in the chest and he was bleeding profusely.”
