friendsTwo friends have engaged each other in a bloody street fight over a girl at Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, southwest Nigeria.

The fight resulted in the stabbing of Saheed Hamza, with a broken bottle by his friend, Christopher Ugbeni.

Ugbeni, a resident of Catholic Mission Street, Lagos Island, and hails from Edo State, has been arrested by the police from the Lion Building Division, Campbell Street.

He said he engaged Hamza in a fight because he was trying to snatch his girlfriend.

Hamza was rushed to the General Hospital, Lagos Island, after he was stabbed. He is currently receiving treatment.

Police investigation revealed that trouble broke out between the two friends when Ugbeni reportedly saw Hamza making love advances to his girlfriend.

Ugbeni was said to have challenged his friend and that it degenerated into a fight during which the suspect broke a bottle and stabbed Hamza in the stomach.

During interrogation following his arrest, Ugbeni confessed to the crime and said he had warned his friend on several occasions to desist from making love advances to his girlfriend, but he would not listen.

“I stabbed my friend to teach him a lesson and stop him from romancing with my girlfriend,” Ugbeni allegedly told the police.

After investigation by Corporal Afu Victor, the suspect was charged before a Tinubu magistrate’s court, Lagos on a two-count charge of stabbing and attempted murder.

The offence, the prosecutor, Inspector I. Okeke said, contravened sections 228(1) and 243 of the criminal laws of Lagos State, 2011.

The accused pleaded guilty to the charge in the open court and Chief Magistrate Y. R. Pinheiro adjourned the matter till 14 January, 2014 for sentence.
