The Lagos State Police arrested a man, 29 year
old Ekanem Enodan for allegedly stabbing his
friend 46 year old commercial motorcycle
operator, Nicolas Goddonu, to death during an
argument over paying for a N50 bottle of water
at Oke-Ira area, Ogba, Lagos.
According to reports, On June 8, Goddonu, a
father of five visited his friend Enodan at his
shop in the company of his younger brother. He
allegedly went into the shop at about 10:50pm
and took a bottle of water which cost N50
without paying for it. Enodan allegedly tried to
stop Goddonu from leaving his shop with the
water by hitting him on his head with a bottle.
Goddonu immediately slumped to the ground.
Enodan, thinking that Goddonu was pretending,
walked over him, took back his bottled water
and walked back into his shop.
Goddonu’s brother checked on him to make sure
he was fine but raised the alarm when he
realized his brother wasn’t breathing and was
promptly rushed to the Ifako General
Hospital, but was confirmed dead on arrival.
However, there were several versions of what
really killed Goddonu, while some of them
alleged that the Enodan stabbed him to death,
others said he only pushed him, which
caused him to hit his head on the hard floor.
An eyewitness Ufom Ekanem said:
‘They played a lot’. “The deceased and
the suspects were friends. That was not
the first time he would collect something
from the shop and run away. “But he
usually paid later. At times, the shop
owner would be chasing the motorcyclist
and at other times he would forcefully
drag whatever Goddunu collected from
his shop. “On that fateful day, the shop
owner only pushed the okadaman in the
chest, while attempting to collect the
bottled water from him. He fell in the
process and became unconscious.”
Another eyewitness, Biodun Odufare, said:
“The deceased was from Egun, while the
suspect is from Cross River State. At
about 11p.m., an argument which
everybody concluded was their normal
play, began. “But we suspected that the
okadaman was drunk. As he was leaving
the shop with the bottled water, the shop
owner threw an empty bottle of soft drink
at him.
“The bottle hit the kiosk and shattered,
with one of its broken parts hitting
Nicolas in the chest. He fell and was
confiremd dead inhospital.” “He fell down
and became unconscious. Later, we
heard that he died at the hospital.”
The Spokesperson for the Lagos State Police
Command, Dolapo Badmus, confirmed the
incident saying:
“On June 9, at about 1a.m., one
Mitchonou Suru, 16, reported at Pen-
Cinema Division that at about 10:50p.m.
the previous day, one Nicolas Goddonu,
46, was hit with a bottle by one Ekanem
Enodan, 29, of Baba Dada Estate, Opic,
Ogun State, during a quarrel between
“The victim was rushed to Ifako general
hospital where he later died. Suspect was
arrested and detained while corpse was
deposited at the hospital’s mortuary for
