Two people were killed and properties destroyed in a clash as an identified Suya Seller and one Bashiru Ahmed who is the son of the Sarkin Hausawa in the Okokomaiko area of Lagos state last Friday, September 14th.
According to a statement released by the Rapid Responds Squad of the Lagos State Police command, Bashiru had accused the Suya man of laughing at him and the suya seller told him he was laughing at the person who fell into the gutter. Bashiru and his gang threw the suya seller’s meat on the floor and left.
Angered by Bashiru’s action, the Suya seller and some sympathizers went to complain to his father, the Sarki, Alh Adamu Ahmed Gaya, who promised to pay for the suya but the owner declined the compensation. The following day, the Suya seller was shot and killed by two assailants who escaped from scene.
The police swung into action and arrested Bashiru Ahmed who is suspected to have had a hand in the murder.
Yesterday Sunday September 17th, friends of the deceased Suya man sighted an associate of Bashiru Ahmed, pursued and killed him near Alaba rago and moved to the Palace of the Sarki and set it ablaze.
