Man kills best friend during gambling in Lagos

A 21-year-old man, Ogadima Nkwaha has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly killing his friend, John Effiong while gambling in the Olodi Apapa area of the state.

According to reports, Nkwaha had won more than N60,000 from the victim who was desperate to recoup his losses.

The victim then staked his phone and lost again.

It was gathered that Effiong demanded his phone back but his friend Nkwaha refused to part with it.

The argument led to a fight which saw Nkwaha slit the victim’s throat with a broken bottle.

Effiong was rushed to a private hospital where he eventually died.

A resident said, “The two guys were childhood friends and they rarely fight. But their undoing was their love for gambling.

“They had gambled that day with money and Effiong lost more than N60,000 to Nkwaha. He thought he could still have a chance, so he decided to bet with his handset. However, his friend won again.

“He refused to release the phone to him and that was how they started arguing. Nkwaha said he must release the phone since he lost the bet, but Effiong refused.

“Nkwaha went inside the room and broke a bottle. Effiong pushed him and he stabbed him in the throat with the broken bottle.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that Effiong’s corpse had been deposited in a morgue for autopsy.

She said, “We have a case involving one Ogadima Nkwaha, who allegedly stabbed one Effiong on the neck with a broken bottle during a fight between them.

“The victim’s corpse has been deposited in a morgue for autopsy, while the suspect is in custody.”
