The deceased was said to have refused to pay for the bread he bought.
A middle-aged man, identified as Peter Nwala, has on Monday, November 25, 2019, been stabbed to death for allegedly refusing to pay for a loaf of bread valued at N100.
According to Punch, the deceased had gone to buy bread, fried egg and a cup of tea from a food vendor on Egbe-Laisu Road in the Idimu area of Lagos.
While eating, Nwala complained that the bread he was served tasted sour; and as a result, reportedly refused to pay.
Nwala’s refusal to pay for the bread led to fracas between him and the yet-to-be-identified food vendor.
The food vendor was said to have sought the help of a man who hailed from the northern part of the country.
Upon being called for help by the food vendor, the Hausa man who sells barbequed meat, popularly called suya, in the area then allegedly stabbed Nwala in the back.
It was gathered that the injury Nwala sustained from the attack eventually led to his death. The suspect fled the scene and has since been on the run.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Bala Elkana, said the Lagos Police Command has launched a manhunt to apprehend the suspect.
Gunmen have attacked some Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) officials travelling from Abuja to Lagos at Oshawa along the Lokoja-Okene highway at about 1:50 pm on Friday. News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the bandits killed the driver and left the other staff in the vehicle critically injured. A statement by Mr Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Education Officer, disclosed that the two personnel were ambushed by the gunmen after Zariagi on Lokoja – Okene road. He said that the incident happened at Oshawa, a town close to Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
The kidnappers, according to first information report, were said to have opened fire at the sight of the marked vehicle and unfortunately shot the driver in the head, killing him instantly. “The vehicle subsequently lost control and veered off the road. “It took hours before the rescue team could locate the vehicle in the bush and evacuate the victims,”
It was widely reported that he’s been close to losing his job for a while now and a 2-1 defeat at home to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League on Thursday was the final nail in the coffin. That result means the Gunners are winless in seven games heading into this weekend’s Premier League fixture with Norwich City – their worst run since 1992. Freddie Ljungberg has stepped into the role of first-team manager on a temporary basis until a permanent manager can be hired.
“We announce today that the decision has been taken to part company with our head coach Unai Emery and his coaching team. “Our most sincere thanks go to Unai and his colleagues who were unrelenting in their efforts to get the club back to competing at the level we all expect and demand. We wish Unai and his team nothing but future success. “The decision has been taken due to results and performances not being at the level required. “We have asked Freddie Ljungberg to take responsibility for the first team as interim head coach. We have full confidence in Freddie to take us forward. “The search for a new head coach is underway and we will make a further announcement when that process is complete.”
The news will be welcomed by a majority of the club’s supporters. In recent weeks, Arsenal’s fanbase has turned toxic, with many calling for Emery to go – much like they did in the final few months of Arsene Wenger’s reign. Against Frankfurt, some supporters were seen holding ‘Emery Out’ signs and their calls have now been answered. Although Ljungberg will take charge of the Premier League trip to Norwich, it’s expected that Arsenal will bring in a new manager very soon. Massimiliano Allegri and Nuno Espírito Santo are two of the front runners to take the job, according to The Telegraph. Emery’s reign at Arsenal may have turned sour in recent weeks, but he actually leaves the club with a respectable record. The Spaniard took charge of 78 games, winning 43, drawing 16 and losing 19. That gives him a win record of 55.1%. However, he failed to win a single trophy during the 2018/19 season and many fans believed that the club were making little progress. But what happens next is hard to predict. Will Ljungberg be able to steady the ship as interim boss and will Emery’s permanent successor be able to turn things around this season?

Come on guys, you have to know when enough is enough. I mean, do you really think that putting a needle and ink INSIDE your eyeball is a good idea? Because if you do, I think you might want to re-evaluate your choices. I get it might seem like a good idea at the time, but come on.
Turns out an Australia woman thought it was
indeed a great idea to get the over the top tattoo…which caused her to lose her eyesight. The woman, who apparently has already spent nearly $26,000 on tattoos, says she went blind after undergoing an eyeball procedure to tattoo the whites of her eyes.
Amber Luke, who goes by Blue Eyed White Dragon, wanted to tattoo her eyes, yes you guessed it, blue. Because are you really a Blue Eyed White Dragon if your eyeballs aren’t blue? The 24-year-old said she went blind for a total of three weeks after following the painful 40-minute procedure. Recalling the pain, she stated, “I can’t even begin to describe to you what the feeling was like, the best thing I can give you is once the eyeball was penetrated with the ink, it felt like [the tattoo artist] grabbed 10 shards of glass and rubbed it in my eyes.”
Yup, imagine some pieces of GLASS SHARDS just roaming around in there. No thank you. Why in the world would anyone want to go through this pain to look like a dragon! Plus…this isn’t cool, personally, I think it sort of looks weird and unnatural.
