Two Military Men fight each other to death in Lagos Over Girlfriend

 

Two military officers, Hilary and Sheu Abdullahi,
fought each other to death on Sunday morning at a popular night club on Pen
Crescent, Apapa area of Lagos over a girlfriend.
Hilary, a corporal in the Nigerian Army, had gone
to the club with his girlfriend who was donned in a military outfit.
The problem however began when the bouncers at
the club stopped the lady and challenged her for wearing a camouflage despite
not being a military officer.
Hilary in defense of his girlfriends allegedly asked
why they would question his girlfriend in his presence and an argument ensued.
Abdullahi, a naval officer who tried settling the
dispute, further fuelled the fight by slapping the soldier’s girlfriend for
disrespecting him.
 “The
soldier was angry and went after the naval officer. He stabbed him with a
jackknife and he died on the spot.” An eye witness told Punch newspaper.
Abdullahi’s colleagues, after getting wind of the
situation, mobilized to the scene, pounced on Hilary, and beat him to a pulp in
retaliation.
The affray was said to have escalated after the
soldier gave up in their hands.
Confirming the incident, the Deputy Police Public
Relations Officer, ASP Lelma Kolle, said “Yes, the incident happened. Actually,
two people died. We received a distress call from someone that there was a
situation at the club and we instantly rushed to the scene. We were able to
bring the situation under control and prevent further loss of lives. It was
just unfortunate that by the time we got there, the two officers had died. But
the police arrested two military officers in connection with the incident.”
He added that the case had been transferred to
the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba, and the corpses of the slain
officers, deposited in the mortuary.
