Drinker Stabs Barman For Looking At Him And His Girlfriend



A barman, who work in an hotel located at Obokun Avenue, in the Ojodu area of Lagos State, is battling with wounds he sustained during an ‘unprovoked’ attack by a male customer.

It was revealed that the alleged attacker, Kelvin Friday, a resident of Ojodu-Abiodun, Ogun State, allegedly stabbed the barman, who he accused of staring at him and his girlfriend.

It was also gathered that Friday and his girlfriend, whose name had yet to be ascertained, had gone to drink in the hotel around 6pm on October 21, 2014, when the incident happened.

Mr. Semeon Tenebe, the victim, claimed he was brooding on an issue he had discussed with his sister earlier in the day when the 25 years old man confronted him. He added that Friday interpreted his stare for rebuke and challended him to a scuffle.

Friday reportedly hit the bottle of beer he was drinking on the barman, inflicting injuries on his face and head. It was learnt that his girlfriend fled the scene when Tenebe started bleeding.

Prior to the incident, it was gathered that Friday had accused the barman of being unpleasant while attending to him and his woman.
