Pix:Councillor Stabs 18-Year-Old Girl In The Neck For Refusing His Love Advances
On October 26, the teenage girl, Miss Mariam Abubakar, went to Pearl Habour Night Club in Rochester Garden Hotel, Festac to “catch weekend fun.”
Her friend, who pleaded anonymity, said they only went there “to hang out” when Babatunde, who was obviously drunk, started to make advances to Abubakar. “She was not interested in him so she did not answer when he called her. He was dancing and Mariam (Abubakar) was sitting at a table. He was obviously drunk and he came to pull her.
“He was manhandling her and she insisted he should leave her alone. This did not go down well with Babatunde and he was really angry. He went to a corner, took a bottle, broke it and stabbed Mariam in the neck,” she said.
A source told the Punch that Babatunde fled the scene immediately. Miss Mariam bled profusely at the scene before she was taken to Naval Hospital, Ojo by sympathisers at the night club. Abubakar is currently under intensive care at the hospital as she was said to have lost about 20% of her blood.
However, the hotel has currently been sealed off by the police because the management did not report the incident. The police also said the night club workers destroyed evidence at the scene of the alleged crime by cleaning up Miss Mariam's blood on the floor.
