A 40-year-old father of 3, Samson Ibrahim, has lost his life when he engaged a rival, Alaba Adeshina, in a fight over a girl. The incident happened at a local bar called ‘Lady Show Bar’ in Pako Idimu, a suburb of Lagos State.

According to information, Ibrahim had gone to the bar on the 1 of January, 2015, with some friends to celebrate the New Year, but he could not return back to his wife and children as he was injured in the ‘love’ fight that ensued and he died subsequently from the grave injuries he sustained.

The information has it that Ibrahim was not happy that his rival, Adeshina, was trying to woo his girlfriend and in an attempt to stop the intruder, a brutal fight occurred and he lost his life in the process. Adeshina reportedly stabbed Ibrahim in the stomach with a broken bottle, forcing his intestines out.

Narrating what transpired that led to the deadly fight, the prime suspect, the 34-year-old Adeshina said:

“I had gone to the bar with my friends and brothers to celebrate the New Year. We were eating and drinking when I saw two ladies smoking at the bar. I admired one of them. My intention was to get acquainted with her and use the opportunity to advise her against smoking.

But when I approached her, she barked at me and threatened to smash a bottle on my head.
Later, she joined us at the table and was discussing with my friends. Again, as she made to leave, I followed her and demanded for her number. 

Before I knew what was happening, a man came out from nowhere and landed his fist across my face, accusing me of trying to take his girl. By then, one of my brothers, Segun Olowopejo, cautioned me to be careful and asked me to leave the bar.

As I was leaving, the man came again and smashed a bottle on my head. I was dazed at that point and cried out for help in pain. That was all I could remember until I woke up next day, to find myself at Temidire hospital with bandage on my head and my right wrist.
I was advised to report the matter at the station because I was told that the fight escalated after I fainted. But on getting to the station, I was detained. It was at the station I learnt that the man I fought with was dead
