Oluwaseun Thomas, is currently fighting for survival at a hospital in Lagos, after hoodlums stabbed him in the eye for allegedly snitching on them. He was said to have been beaten up by the hoodlums, before they stabbed him in the eye.
It was gathered that Thomas, whose work area was Oja Oba Market on Dosumu Street, had supplied information, through a community leader, to the police Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja, that hoodlums kept weapons in a hideout in the market.
The SARS policemen were said to have stormed the market, and recovered the weapons, including cutlasses, knives and guns, but they were unable to arrest the hoodlums. Thomas was attacked later that night.
After stabbing him in the eye through the side of his head, they abandoned him by the roadside with the knife stuck in his eye. He was subsequently rushed to LUTH by residents, who then alerted the police.
