A man identified as, Nyagh Isaiah, has been arrested by the police for allegedly killing his co-worker, Kingsley Kato, during a fight over a Point of Sale, PoS transaction at a hotel in the Surulere Local Government Area of Lagos State.

Isaiah and Kato were said to be bartenders attending to customers at the bar section of the hotel located at Ojuelegba Road when an argument ensued between them.

It was gathered that the two of them engaged in a shouting match and refused several entreaties by colleagues and customers to resolve their differences amicably.

However, the argument degenerated and the co-workers engaged each other in a scuffle that later involved the use of weapons, including broken bottles.

According to a source, who refused to disclose his name over the fear of losing his job, said that when Isaiah and Kato started fighting, they initially did not make use of any weapon.

The source explained that it was during the fight that they both fell on empty bottles which broke and injured them at different parts of their bodies.

He said, “Both of them are from the same village. They were attending to customers when an argument started between them. I don’t know the cause of the argument that made both of them start engaging in a fight.

“As they were fighting, they both fell on empty bottles and the bottles broke. They continued fighting as they were rolling on the broken bottles and it pierced various parts of their bodies.

“One of them sustained injuries in the neck and chest, and the other person also sustained injuries in the stomach and other parts of his body. But the one that sustained injuries in the neck and chest was rushed to hospital where doctors confirmed him dead.”

The source said the matter was reported at the Surulere Police Division, adding that Isaiah was handed over to the police for prosecution.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, when contacted confirmed the incident.

He said, “The command has commenced an investigation into the matter. Cultism is a menace we are tackling headlong.”
