Friend stabs mate to death over N100 debt

A disagreement between two friends over a N100 debt has resulted in one of them being stabbed to death.
The incident occurred at about 11pm on Wednesday at Whitesand area of Badia, a slum in Apapa-Iganmu Local Council Development Area of Lagos State.
The deceased, identified simply as White London, was said to be indebted to his killer friend, Emma, to the sum of N1,100, with a promise to pay back within a week.
Emma, who is an attendant in a film house/brothel located in the area, according to an eyewitness, was given N1,000 by White London, leaving a balance of N100.
Emma insisted on collecting the N100 balance immediately.
All appeal for a latter date fell on his deaf ears.
According to the eyewitness, a scuffle ensued in the process, which forced White London to dash for a bottle, broke it and stabbed his creditor on the head.
The eyewitness added: “Soaked in his pool of blood, Emma also picked a bottle and succeeded in stabbing While London on his neck.
“In fact, the bottle penetrated deep into the neck and we saw some white things inside.
“Due to the enormity of blood that rushed out uncontrollably, he died at the spot.”
It was further gathered that the killer had attempted to bolt away, but was apprehended by some members of the Oodua People’s Congress, who intimated police operatives attached to Badia Division for his prompt arrest.
