SHOCKING: Bar owner allegedly stabs footballer to death in Lagos

The family of a 36-year-old footballer, Ifeanyi Uchendu, has been thrown into mourning after a bar owner, Dennis Obiora, allegedly stabbed him to death in the Alausa, Ikeja area of Lagos State.

THEWATCH NEWS gathered that Ifeanyi and a friend, identified simply as Chinedu, were drinking at the Dorbazini Bar, Alausa, when the latter started smoking a substance suspected to be Indian hemp.

Immediately the salesgirl at the bar spotted Chinedu, she reportedly cautioned him.

Our correspondent learnt that when he refused to heed her warning, she called the bar owner, Obiora, and informed him about the situation.

The two men were said to have exchanged words, as Chinedu reportedly claimed he was not smoking on the bar’s premises.

The argument was said to have degenerated to a fight between them.

Ifeanyi, in a bid to settle the disagreement, intervened, as Chinedu was taken to a shop in the area.

A witness, Ganiu Olayemi, said when Obiora could no longer see Chinedu, he confronted Ifeanyi for allowing his friend to escape.

The bar owner was alleged to have stabbed the victim in the chest.

Olayemi said efforts to rescue the 36-year-old proved abortive, as he died before he could get to hospital.

“After Chinedu was dragged away, Obiora started looking for him. Ifeanyi stepped in and pleaded with him to stop the fight.

“But Obiora said, ‘it was you that allowed him to run away.’ In the process, he stabbed him three times. Ifeanyi fell.

“People brought a tricycle and tried to rush him to a hospital. But when they discovered that he was already dead, they turned back and dumped the corpse in front of the bar,” he added.
