Pandemonium broke out in a Fulani community in Ogun state on Monday, November 20 after one Abdullahi Audu cut off the entire wrist of his friend, Usman Muhammed, during a quarrel over a bottle of soft drink in the Ogunmakin area of the state on Monday, November 20.
It is not clear what could have led to their quarrel but Punch reports that Audu, who was said to have started the trouble, drew out a cutlass and cut off the entire wrist of Muhammed during the heat of the moment. Seeing that his hand had been cut off, Muhammed was said to have also drawn out a knife and stuck it in Audu’s stomach in what was believed to be a retaliation before people could separate the duo.
However, the incident further became uglier when the knife Muhammed stuck in Audu’s abdomen was said to have brought out his (Audu) intestine, leaving both friends grimacing in pain. Sighting the bloody scuffle between the two friends, the Seriki of Fulani in the community, Alhaji Wakili, was said to have approached the Owode Egba Police Division to report the incident.
Confirming the incident to Punch, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Omolola Odutola, said they had begun an investigation into the matter.
“The incident occurred on Monday. We are investigating the matter” Odutola said
