It was gathered that policemen from the Isolo division went to the scene to remove the corpse.

It was also learnt that on Sunday at about 8.30pm, customers had come to recline at the restaurant.

It was said that an argument had ensued between the victim, whose name had yet to be ascertained, and another customer, leading to a free-for-all. He was killed in the process while two others were injured.

A police source said the operatives had yet to ascertain what led to the fight, adding that preliminary investigation showed that some of the customers were drunk.

He said, “Anti-crime patrol policemen mobilised to the scene and a man was seen lying down in a pool of blood. He was subsequently rushed to a hospital, where he died.”

It was learnt that the management of the restaurant, who were invited by the police, denied that the fight occurred on their premises.

Attempts to get the reaction of the restaurant were not successful, as the management was not willing to comment on the incident.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that investigation was ongoing.

She said, “The owner of the bar is undergoing interrogation with the command. Although he denied that the fracas happened inside his bar, the police are investigating to find out what actually transpired.”
