A Lagos street tout has shared the story of two friends and colleagues of his whose lives ended tragically over suya cabbage.
Speaking with Netflix in a documentary titled ”Awon Boys”, the tout said one of his friends identified as Lion bought suya after attending afrobeat singer, Femi Kuti’s show.
As he started eating, another friend named Deji, came and took cabbage that was on the suya, and in a swift reaction, Lion punched Deji who then fell and broke his head.
He tried to run away but other area boys grabbed him and he was eventually jailed for murder.
While in prison, Lion started thinking of his life, and he punished himself by doing absurd things. He later died in December that year.
