There was pandemonium penultimate Tuesday in the Itafaaji area of Oke- Igbo, Ondo State, after a masquerade, Olojede, allegedly brutalised a man called Oyewale Isaac during a row over N1000.
The money was allegedly given to some youths during the masquerade festival held in the community.
It was learnt that the Isaac encountered the masquerade, while he was begging for money from people.
Isaac , a commercial motorcyclist popularly called okada and his friends who were at the venue of the festival were said to have jokingly told the masquerade that they had no money, and that they were willing to take money from the masquerade, if he had any.
Trouble however started after an unidentified man arrived the scene and gave a sum of N1000 to another masquerade identified as ‘Mopol’, who in turn shared the money with Isaac and his friends.
It was while Isaac was trying to keep the money in his pocket that Olojede emerged and asked him to surrender the money to him.
