They both reside in the same compound on Alhaji Abass Street, Ogudu, Lagos State.

While Babangida lives with his mother, Biodun squats with her elder sister who is married.

The duo had enjoyed a mutual relationship for about two years, until sometime in March 2017 when Babangida’s mother asked him to quit the friendship after a disagreement he had with Biodun.

It was gathered that Babangida, after his mother’s directive, kept Biodun at arm’s length.

Biodun, however, reportedly approached Babangida for reconciliation two weeks ago, and pleaded with him to resume his role as her errand boy, which the latter rejected.

The strained relationship, it was learnt, assumed a new dimension around 8pm on Tuesday when they met at the shop of a woman in the area.

Biodun was said to have rebuked Babangida, which prompted the shop owner to ask him what went wrong.

Babangida reportedly declined to speak with the woman in Biodun’s presence and promised to discuss the issue the next day.

He had gone to the toilet around 11.30pm to urinate and was about to leave the restroom when Biodun allegedly sneaked in, squeezed his neck and forced him to open his mouth.

She subsequently yanked out part of his tongue.

The victim’s mother, who is the landlady of the building, Hassanat Ali, said she was asleep when Olumide Agbolade (aka Olumba), the husband of Biodun’s elder sister, raised alarm.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations, Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed the assault, adding that the suspect has been charged to court.

Biodun has been remanded in custody while the case was adjourned till October 18, 2017.
