Our reporters gathered that the 24-year old Ahmed stabbed one Mr Samuel Owawu to death with a broken bottle. It was learnt that the cause of the fight was a phone which belonged to a gay friend of the deceased.

The deceased and his friend, one Emeka Uche had invited a mutual friend, Francis to their house for a party. When Francis arrived, he immediately started making sexual advances at the deceased who tried to resist him.

It was learnt that the deceased raised an alarm, and a crowd gathered at the residence and started beating the alleged gay man.

It was at this point that Ahmed (the defendant) and some his friends who were all members of the same cult group started demanding for the release of the gay man’s phone.

The deceased refused, while insisting that the phone which had some videos which showed Francis (the gay man) engaging in sexual acts with other men, would be used as evidence to the police.

Ahmed then engaged the deceased in a fight, and in the process, he picked up a broken bottle and allegedly stabbed him in the chest. The deceased was rushed to the Ifako Ijaiye General hospital, Lagos, where he later died.

Ahmed was apprehended and handed over to the police where he was charged to court on a count of murder, which he pleaded not guilty to.

The defendant was not granted bail, but was remanded in Ikoyi prisons on the orders of the court.

The presiding Judge, Justice Bisi Akinlade thereafter, adjourned the matter till May 30 for trial.
