In a statement on Sunday, the Lagos State Police Command’s spokesman, DSP. Bala Elkana, said the deceased was attacked by three hoodlums, who also dispossessed him of some valuables.

“On April 26 at about 11.30 a.m., Aderigbigbe reported at Okokomaiko Police Station with blood gushing out of his body and stated that he was attacked by three young men, who stabbed him with a knife, dispossessed him of his handset and laptop.
