A Nigerian has been attacked at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, by an American citizen identified as Breedlove Shawn.
The Nigerian who is said to be an official of the airport was attacked by Shawn who allegedly broke his car key in the victim's ear, Premium Times reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the suspect has been arrested by the Nigeria Police Force and the victim has been operated on at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH).
The disclosure was made by the managing director and chief executive officer of Billafary Towing Service Limited, Lamidi Falekulo.
According to him, the incident happened on Wednesday, July 24, when officials of the towing service accosted Shawn for parking his vehicle at the restricted area of the airport.
He said: “As they were struggling, I didn’t know how he managed to break the key in the worker’s ear. The airport police command detained him and our staff was taken to LASUTH where they operated on him to remove the key."
The incident was confirmed by the divisional police officer of the international airport, Danjuma Garba, who said the suspect would be charged with assault and “inflicting grievous bodily injury” on his victim.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the February 23 poll, Atiku Abubakar, said the visa restriction placed on Nigerian politicians believed to have been responsible for undermining democracy in Nigeria by the US State Department validated his claims that the general elections were rigged.
Atiku in a statement on Wednesday, July 24, by his special adviser on media, Paul Ibe, said in the aftermath of the “daylight robbery that occurred on election day”, Buhari’s regime and its allies went into a propaganda overdrive to deny the obvious.
The former vice president said no matter how long lies stay, it must eventually be overtaken by truth, as he called on Nigerians not to despair, expressing hope that there would be relief soon.
