Man Kills Friend Over N150 Drink



A 42-year-old man, Oluwafemi Olaifa, has been remanded at the correctional centre in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, by a magistrate’s court for killing his friend.

The prosecutor, Inspector Olubu Apata, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on February 20, in Ado-Ekiti, by killing one Ayoola Ajayi.

Insp Apata said according to the statement of the defendant to the police, the deceased was his best friend, and that on that day he met him at a POS booth trying to withdraw money.

Insp Apata said, “The defendant said he bought a N150 Chapman drink and Ajaiy snatched it from him and drank it even before he paid for it, hence he got annoyed and they fought and in the process he broke a beer bottle and threw it at him.

The prosecutor urged the court to remand the defendant pending legal advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
