According to Mariam’s friend, Babatunde Onimole who appeared drunk at the night club started making advances to Mariam who turned him down.
“She was not interested in him so she did not answer when he called her. He was dancing and Mariam (Abubakar) was sitting at a table. He was obviously drunk and he came to pull her.
“He was manhandling her and she insisted he should leave her alone. This did not go down well with Babatunde and he was really angry. He went to a corner, took a bottle, broke it and stabbed Mariam in the neck.” – Mariam’s friend said
Babatunde Onimole reportedly fled the scene after she stabbed Mariam on the neck at around 1:30am.
Mariam who suffered serious bleeding was rushed to a Naval Hospital in Ojo by some good Samaritans

Mariam went into coma as she was being taken to Ajeromi General Hospital where she was revived.
According to a nurse at Ajeromi Hospital, Mariam who lost 20% of her blood is currently under intensive care.
However, the police said the night club workers destroyed evidence at the scene of the alleged crime by cleaning up Abubakar’s blood on the floor.
