A worker with the Lagos State Waste Management Agency, Oluwaseun Thomas, is currently on admission at a private hospital on the Lagos Island, after hoodlums stabbed him in the eye for allegedly reporting their activities to the police.

Thomas, whose work area was Oja Oba Market on Dosumu Street, was initially rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi Araba, to remove the hoodlums’ knife which was left in his head, before being taken to a private hospital for further treatment.

Thomas was said to have been beaten up by the hoodlums, before they stabbed him in the eye.

Info has it that Thomas had supplied information, through a community leader in the area, 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, who was on a night duty, on Thursday, January 21, was discharging his duty in the market when the hoodlums attacked him at about 9pm.

Apart from Thomas, some other workers of the agency at the market were also attacked.

After stabbing him in the eye through the side of his head, the hoodlums abandoned the LAWMA worker by the roadside with the knife stuck in his eye.

Residents, who alerted the police at the Adeniji Adele division, were said to have also rushed him to LUTH.

The Head of Public Affairs, LAWMA, Mr. Lookman Seriki, confirmed the attack, adding that some of the workers had been discharged from the hospital after treatments.

He said, “The attack is true. Some of our workers have been treated and discharged from the hospital.

“The police are also investigating the matter.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, also confirmed the incident, adding that the police were waiting for the complainant to give a lead on the arrest of the hoodlums.
