Mr David, a sound engineer and father of two was beaten to a pulp and set ablaze recently in Lekki, Lagos.
His sister in law @OpeTheKing tweeted the real story on Sunday May 15, 2022..
”This is the real story leading to #justicefordavesound Because, I’m seeing some comments about my brother-in-law being a Yahoo boy/ritualist and it’s really breaking my heart. Yes, Uncle David was killed over N100. This is what really happened.
The bike man involved carried two passengers to drop near (Beer Barn) Admiralty way, Lekki Phase 1. Uncle David was NOT one of these passengers. These guys were some of the musicians that came to work at Beer Barn.
”Bike man was supposed to collect N400, the guys gave him N500.
”Bike man said he didn’t have N100 change. The two guys didn’t have too. So they gave the bike man N300 assuring him that they are regulars on the street and will balance him whenever they see. The men turned to leave and the bike man grabbed one of the guy’s shirt, tearing it in the process. The guy whose shirt the bike man tore, turned and punched the bike man which resulted into the bike man fainting/knocked out of consciousness.
”All these while, Uncle David was inside Beer Barn. It was when people around (including the bike man’s tribesmen) started dragging these two guys to wake up the bike man, that was when Uncle David was called in. My brother-in-law came to separate fight o.
”Prior to this, around last week, someone had slumped and died…People had suspected foul play. Saying the incident was linked to guys on a bike who could possibly be yahoo boys. So when this incident involving the bike man occurred, people automatically assumed that yahoo boys are at play again.
”When Uncle David saw that there was an angry mob, and the situation had been blown out of proportion and accusations were flying, he ran and hid himself.
”A woman who didn’t know the origin of the whole issue, found Uncle David hiding and directed the mob to where he was, accusing him of being a ritualist. They used stone to break his head. They beat him. Stripped him naked and eventually set him on fire.
”This is what happened. This is the truth. Uncle David was a reputable human being. He wasn’t dragging N100 with a bike man. He was called in to separate the fight.
”The two guys involved were beaten almost to death and are now in critical condition. Please let’s say No to jungle justice. Anyone who calls my brother-in-law a ritualist again will meet with a fate 10x worse. Don’t throw accusations without evidence. If you don’t know the whole story, don’t intervene. No one’s life is in your hand.
”You have no right to slap, hit, or maim someone even if you caught them in a crime. Drag them to the police! Why would you kill someone?! Why should one of the kindest souls die based on sheer savagery, animalistic tendencies, and illiterate paranoia? I am sad.
”His wife, kids, family, friends, colleagues…everyone is mourning and heartbroken because some people chose to be wicked and animals. Northern men made up most of this angry mob. Now their bike man is alive and well,’’
”So far, 15 people have been arrested including the unfortunate woman who showed the mob where my brother-in-law was hiding. If there are anymore updates, I’ll let y’all know.”
OMG he was killed for nothing!!!…..Bike men should be removed from the streets, if you cannot afford to work with Keke Napep then dont work…. How can this happen in Lagos
