A lottery kiosk operator, Mufutau Sanni, has reportedly lost his life after he succumbed to injuries while trying to separate a fight between an Hausa man and his Yoruba counterpart on MKO Abiola Way, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Sunday.
According to a newspaper vendor, who witnessed the scenario, Mr Remi Abimbola, while speaking with Tribune Online, trouble started when argument ensued between an Hausa trader and his customer, a development which caused Sanni to intervene with motive to resolve the matter.
Sanni’s intervention, however, did not go down well with Hausas who are majorly commercial motorcycle operators, which made them to descend heavily on him.
The attack on Sanni, according to Abimbola, was huge to the extent that he had to be rushed to a nearby hospital where an unconfirmed report said he had given up the ghost.
As of the time of filing this report, the Nigerian Police personnel and Amotekun have taken over the security of the scene of the attack.
