2 sex starved men cause bloody fight over prostitute in Lagos

Two men have been remanded in prison after their fight over a prostitute they both laid claim to turned bloody and destructive.

Two friends reportedly went at each other's throats at the end of a world cup match between Croatia and Argentina.

PM Express reports that the two combatants, Taiye Ajani and Afeez Ajao engaged in the fight over a prostitute in a brothel in the Akesan area of Lagos State after both of them laid claim to the commercial sex worker.

The fight which started with the two men degenerated to a bloody fight as other patrons at the brothel joined in.

In the end, the police estimated property destroyed to be worth around N1.5 million after they were arrested and charged to a court from where they were ordered to be remanded in prison custody.

Eyewitnesses say the fight broke out between Ajani and Ajao after they had a disagreement over the prostitute with both of them laying a claim to her.

As they engaged in the fight, a serious fracas ensued and their friends who were also at the brothel joined in support and it turned into a free-for-all with many customers who were in the hotel were attacked and sustained various degrees of injuries during the fight which lasted for several hours.

Properties of the brothel including a Toyota Sienna van parked outside were damaged before the police came and contain the menace.

The main suspects who had escaped at that time were identified by the management and they were trailed and arrested in their various hideout and detained before they were charged at a Magistrate’s Court sitting in Ejigbo for the alleged offence under the Criminal code.

When the charges were read to Ajani and Ajao, they pleaded not guilty and the presiding Magistrate, Mr. Akeem Fashola granted them bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Fashola, however, ordered that they are remanded in prison custody pending when they will perfect their bail condition while the matter was adjourned till February 13, 2017.
