Motorcycle riders have allegedly killed a young man, by the name of Dave in the Lekki area of Lagos, over N100 balance.
It was gathered that Dave and one of the motorcyclists got into a heated conversation which led to a crowd of more okada riders gathering up.
As the situation which occurred some few days ago, degenerated, the okada riders pounced on David and his friends, beating them to within an inch of their lives. David would be later burned by the hoodlums, suspected to be of Hausa decent.
The deceased, it was later gathered, is a father of two and a sound engineer, and on that fateful day, was returning from a show with his friend when the incident took place around Lekki Phase 1.
David’s friends, Frank (saxophonist) and Philip (keyboardist) are said to be receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
A tweet of one Ufouma obtained by Switch Nigeria read, “#JusticeforDavid killed in Lagos over #100 change #JusticeForDeborahSamuel killed in Sokoto #JusticeforPhillipandFrank fighting for their lives in the hospital.
She added, “A group of musicians in Lagos had “regular” to play at Beer-bar along Admiralty road that evening. The sound engineer and keyboard player who mounted the same bike had an argument with the okada man (an aboki guy) which resulted in what became a cold-blooded night.
“The other okada riders (that were of the same tribe) came out and tried to avenge their “brother”. To cut the long story short, try were beaten to a pulp and the sound engineer lost his life right there. “As if that was not enough, the sound engineer was burnt right there on the road. To make matters worse, the saxophonist that was to play for the night heard about what was happening while the fight just ensued and he went to try to settle not having a full grasp of what was really going on.
