Salisu Aishat, along with seven others, has been apprehended in relation to the demise of an unidentified man in the Ijora Badia region of Lagos State.

According to PUNCH Metro, it was gathered on Wednesday that Aishat was celebrating her birthday when she invited some guests to join her in the felicitation on Olayemi Street, Ijora Badia.

It was gathered that people were busy having fun during the celebration when the victim was suddenly found lying unconscious on the floor where the event was taking place.

In a bid to ascertain his condition, it was learnt that people moved closer to investigate what had happened to him and while assessing the victim, a wound was seen on his head, suggesting that something sinister had happened to him.

“The case was reported at the Ijora Badia Division and when policemen got to the scene and did their investigation, they arrested the celebrant who organised the party and some other persons.”


The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, when contacted, said the incident happened around 9.10 pm on April 16, 2024, and that it was a concerned member of the community who reported the case to the police.

He added, “Immediately, the DPO led his patrol team to the scene and the celebrant, Salisu Aishat, and seven others were arrested. A wound was discovered on the head of the corpse.
