Man who criticized 'Igbo' smokers has ear bitten off during fight
A young man who did not mind his business when he saw some Indian Hemp smokers has had his ear bitten off during a fight in Lagos.
According to Punch, the incident happened in the Mushin area of Lagos State after, Ajisefini, a site manager who had lived with his parents on Olateju street in the area before relocating to the Isolo, a suburb of the state, had gone to his hood on Saturday, November 26, 2016, to visit his friends.
But when he got to his former house and saw the smokers sitting in front of the building puffing away, was said to have cautioned them and insisted they left the place.
The smokers who was apparently 'high', allegedly told him he had no right to order them to leave the place as he no longer lived there, leading to a quarrel.
An eyewitness narrated further:
"When Tolani told the boys to leave the place, they ignored him. They said he had left the area and had no right to dictate to them what to do and what not to do.
This resulted in arguments and later degenerated into a fight. One of Tolani’s friends also backed him and fought the gang members.
Tolani, however, asked his unnamed friend to leave the matter to him alone. He pushed his friend aside and ordered him to leave the place. One mocked the friend, saying Tolani did not appreciate his effort.”
It was gathered that Ajisefini in anger, attacked the said Michael for making the statement and in the ensuing scuffle, Ajisefini was alleged to have grabbed a bottle to attack the suspect, who parried it away.
Michael, seeing that his assailant had an advantage over him, was said to have sunk his teeth onto Ajisefini's ear and bit it off.
The victim was reportedly rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-araba, Surulere, where he was quickly attended to by the medical personnel on duty but the ear could not be reattached as the tissue was already dead.
