A man identified as Ibrahim Dauda, has reportedly killed his brother, Tunde, during a fight over N1,000 at their residence on Amusa street, off Community Road, in the Obadore area of Igando, Lagos State.
According to Punch Metro, the brothers were at home when an argument involving N1,000 started between them.
The argument culminated in the brothers engaging in fisticuffs, during which Ibrahim ran into the house and reached for an iron rod.
Ibrahim allegedly hit Tunde’s forehead with the rod and the impact caused the 27-year-old to lose consciousness while he fell.
According to a source, Tunde was rushed to the Igando General Hospital where a doctor pronounced him dead.
The source said, “The incident happened on Sunday, January 29, 2023. Both of them were fighting over N1, 000, and in the process, one of the brothers (Ibrahim) used an iron rod to hit his brother (Tunde) on his forehead.
“People quickly rushed him to the general hospital in Igando but he was confirmed dead. His corpse was evacuated and taken to the Mainland General Hospital, Yaba, for autopsy.”
Reports say Ibrahim has been arrested by policemen attached to the Igando Vision.
The incident could not be confirmed by the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, as efforts to reach him proved abortive as of the time this report was filed on Monday.
