Man arrested for chopping off his neighbour’s hand for causing trouble
A tailor, 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, reports Punchng.
It was learnt that Badejo was at a lotto centre, last Wednesday, when an argument ensued between him and some gamblers. The argument degenerated 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, a tailor, 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, Samson ran into his room and Wale followed him.
Wale barged into Samson’s room with a bottle. Samson also brought out a cutlass, hacked him on the head and chopped off his left hand.
