A young man was stabbed to death for attending a party uninvited.
23-year-old Akeem Tajudeen, had reportedly attended a party at the Ilaje Otumara area of Iponri, Lagos state, where he met his unfortunate death at the hands of another party goer identified as Abeeb.
Akeem who is a sales boy, had attended the party on Saturday, November 5, at Olokodana area, after which Abeeb accompanied by some of his goons, trailed him to his house on Monday, November 7, and “punished him for daring to gatecrash our party.”
Narrating what happened to Punch Metro, a resident said:
“The party Akeem and his friends went for was on Saturday in Olokodana. At the party, Abeeb, one Austin and other hoodlums challenged them for attending the birthday party, but they settled it and left. But on Monday, the same Abeeb went to Ilaje Otumara, and started a fight with some boys. Akeem was spotted and Abeeb stabbed him with a knife in the chest, saying he gatecrashed their party on Saturday. The boy slumped and was left in a pool of blood.
We tried to arrest Abeeb, but he stabbed two other youths before he escaped. When policemen from Iponri came, Abeeb and his gang members had escaped from the scene. His parents have also relocated due to fear of arrest.”

Akeem's father who happens to be a driver, said he got the bad news while he was working:
“Akeem is my only son. He was not a troublesome boy. I was at work on Monday when they called me that someone had stabbed him to death. My wife has been hospitalised since that Monday. I want the police to arrest the killer of Akeem. I want him to be brought to justice because he has thrown my family into mourning.”
Akeem was buried on Tuesday, November 8.
