Explaining further, the source said Dauda, upon realising the impact of his attack on the victim, fled from the scene, adding that in a bid to rescue Akadogo, people who witnessed the attack quickly rushed him to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital for treatment.

The source, however, noted that the guard died while receiving treatment in the hospital.
