A fight between two tricycle riders over newspaper in Lagos state has resulted in the shocking death of one. A tricycle rider, Chidiebere Okafor has landed in serious trouble after he reportedly pushed another tricycle rider, Frank Onah during an argument over newspaper.
 
Okafor is being detained at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Lagos, for the death of his colleague, Frank Onah, in the Ifako Gbagada area of Lagos State.
It was gathered that the incident took place on Tuesday on Yetunde Brown Street.
 
According to the report, the Enugu State indigene was said to have slumped and was rushed to the General Hospital, Gbagada, where he was confirmed dead.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a friend said: “We cannot explain it. Chidi (Okafor) had left a sports newspaper in a friend’s tricycle. Frank (Onah) took it to read.
Quote
“Some minutes later, the owner of the paper started looking for it and he sighted Frank reading the paper and challenged him.
“Chidi became angry when Frank refused to release the newspaper to him and they started arguing. “Frank attacked Chidi with fist blows and Chidi pushed him. He slumped and died.”

 
Another tricycle operator, who also did not identify himself, said the victim had refused to release the newspaper because he thought it belonged to someone else.
Quote
“People had separated them and they were going their separate ways when Frank slumped and died,”
he added.
 
The late Onah was married with two children. His corpse has been taken to the hospital. His family members were said to be residing in their hometown in Nsukka, Enugu State.
Quote
“If I didn’t do it, the body might have been left to decompose, because everybody just abandoned him,”
he added.
 
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, said the suspect had been taken into custody. He said,

“Our detectives have visited and photographed the scene. The corpse has also been deposited in a morgue for autopsy.”

You can't be too careful nowadays. Some people are carrying death on their head waiting for a victim to detonate it. Keep your hands to yourself to avoid trouble.

u are right. a lot of people are walking around with very serious health conditions that they are not even aware of because most people cannot afford or do not see the need for periodic health checks.
