How Pinging Landed Man In Hospital
One Mr. Julius Joseph, 34, got a shock of his life when a mechanic, Olajide Olaniran stabbed him mercilessly for pinging on the road while driving in the Ijaiye area of Lagos State.
It was reported that Joseph was returning from a bank in the area to withdraw money when Olaniran, who was in a Toyota Corolla, blocked the road and accused him of pinging and driving.
Yet Joseph who claimed he was checking an alert he received on his phone when the incident occurred, challenged the 42-year-old mechanic for driving against the traffic and both men alighted from their cars.
Following an altercation between the two, Olaniyan, allegedly used a bottle to stab Joseph after which he made off with his (Joseph’s) two phones and N5,000.
The victim reportedly slumped at the spot having lost much blood. He was said to have been rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, and was later referred to the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi for intensive care.
The mechanic has since been arrested.
