Akintunde Fadugba, a staff of the Centre for Information and Technology System, UNILAG, and Rasaq Akokia, a 400-level student, were, around 11 pm on Friday,
killed by some hoodlums on Opayemi Street, Abule Ijesha, Yaba, Lagos State .
According to a report by PunchNg, the hoodlums, numbering six and reportedly led by the drug dealer, known to the police, had stormed the community on motorcycles and shot indiscriminately.
Fadugba, who was said to be relaxing in front of a barber’s – a stone’s throw from his residence was shot and died on the spot. It was learnt that Akokia was ill and had gone to buy drugs from a chemist on the street.
He was returning home when a bullet hit him in the chest. A community leader, Mr Omolaja Johnson, said the drug dealer had been unleashing terrors on the community since 2016 when he was sent out of the community.
He said the mastermind had used some policemen to harass residents, adding that a petition was sent to the Zone 2 Police Command , Onikan, against the policemen and the hoodlums.
The spokesperson for the police in Lagos, SP Chike Oti, said the command had launched a manhunt for the hoodlums. He said, “There were four individuals who were known for negatively influencing children and youths in that community.
They had issues with the community and they were chased away. They regrouped and unleashed mayhem on the community, years after they were sent out. They killed a university worker and a student.”
The spokesperson for UNILAG, Mrs Taiwo Oloyede, confirmed Fadugba’s death but said she was not aware a student was also killed.
“Mr. Fadugba was shot on Friday and we lost him. He was a senior non-teaching staff member of the Centre for Information and Technology System. He will be buried this week. I am not sure we lost any student, but I will confirm and get back to you.”
