A young man has lost his life while trying to make peace between two others fighting.
31-year-old man, Yinka Adewoyin, was reportedly been beaten to death while trying to stop two men from fighting.
According to The Nation, the sad incident happened on Thursday. The deceased was on his way back home from a beer parlour a few friends when he saw two men identified as Kazeem aka Down gear and Mopo beating an elderly mechanic called Mukaila Lasisi.
Kazeem was said to have scolded Lasisi for fixing a truck parked by the roadside, ordering him to remove it from that spot, an order Lasisi refused to follow as he isn’t the owner of the vehicle.
Angered by Lasisi’s refusal to adhere to his order Kazeeem beat up the old man and was in the act when Adewoyin, passed. He was said to have pleased with Kazeem and his friend, Mopo to leave Lasisi alone and instead of listening they turned their anger on Adewoyin’s beating him mercilessly until he fell down, hit his head and went into coma.
The men ran away and Adewoyin was taken to a hospital by passersby. He died three days after.
