In what will come across as a really heartbreaking development, a young man, simply identified as David, has been lynched and burned to death.
He was killed allegedly by a group of Hausa men over a misunderstanding that ensued because of N100 balance with a commercial motorcyclist, popularly called Okada rider.
It was learnt that things got heated up and resulted in a fight between David and one of the commercial motorcyclists.
According to sources, the situation soon degenerated as more motorcyclists allegedly pounced on David and his friends, beating them till they became unconscious.
David, who was said to be a sound engineer, was on his way home from a club when the incident occurred at Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, a few days ago.
A video obtained by SaharaReporters shows the deceased was being beaten alongside yet-to-be-identified men, said to be David’s friends.
David’s friends, Frank (saxophonist) and Philip (keyboardist) are said to be receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
A tweet by Ufuoma (@thecoloredpen), said, “#JusticeforDavid killed in Lagos over #100 change #JusticeForDeborahSamuel killed in Sokoto #JusticeforPhillipandFrank fighting for their lives in the hospital.
