The matter was immediately reported at the Agbado Police Station and Kehinde was arrested.

When interrogated, Kehinde denied attacking his friend with any mysterious ring.

“We were close friends and we usually introduced customers to each other. The umbrella was the devil that caused all this. When I could not repair the umbrella, he came to our shop to collect it and the N200 he gave me.

”I told him to be patient and I promised to give him the money and the umbrella later that evening. He slapped me and I slapped him back. He fell and I poured water on him. I was the one who rushed him to hospital. I did not use anything to hit him. We were not fighting. We were playing.” he said

Police say he will be charged to court immediately investigations into the matter have been concluded.
