One person died at the Orile Iganmu area of Lagos State after a drinking competition during the Sallah celebration.

The man simply identified as Onyibo had engaged in a drinking spree with some of his friends on Adeyeye Street at Orile and died vomiting blood during the process.

A police officer at the Orile police station told newsmen that the man, who has no specified address, was dumped by his friends in a workshop around the area and escaped for fear of being arrested.


According to the police officer, “One Asimiu reported that a man popularly known as Onyibo was found dead in his shop at Alafia bus-stop.”

An eyewitness, who craved anonymity said, “Onyibo and his friends, mostly touts and street urchins were seen drinking heavily during the day.

“They were competing over who would finish some bottles of some locally brewed spirit popularly called Sepe.

“It was during the contest that Onyibo collapsed. His friends who tried to revive him immediately took him away.


“When they were unable to bring him back to life, they quickly abandoned him in a workshop and fled for fear of possible arrest by the police.”
