Pandemonium broke out on Monday at Sapon area of Abeokuta when a drunkard, simply identified as Omo-West gave up the ghost after drinking a full bottle of dry gin.
The victim who resides in Sapon area of Abeokuta South local government of Ogun State reportedly fainted after drinking a full bottle of N1,200 dry gin before he was rushed to a hospital within the community.
PLATFORM TIMES reliably gathered that the victim gave up the ghost three days after he was admitted in a hospital whose name has not been ascertained by our correspondent as at the time of filing this report.
A source within the community told our correspondent that, Omo-West and his friends had bet with a phone worth N45,000 on drinking a full bottle of dry gin.
“After Omo-West took the last zip of the dry gin, he fainted and was rushed to hospital within the locality. He was admitted from Saturday to Monday before he finally died at the hospital” the source said.
However, the deceased’s friends have been arrested by the nearest police station immediately Omo-West death was announced in the community.
Findings showed that the friends were released after they claimed innocence of his death.
All efforts to contact the Police Public Relations office in the state, CSP Abimbola Oyeyemi prove abortive as his phone was not connecting.
