A young Nigerian doctor, Irawo Adamolekun, was shot dead on Friday (11th January) in the Anthony area of Lagos by an unknown gunman. He was killed in his car, in broad daylight in front of hundreds of people.
The story of the murder has been trending on social media, people expressing their anger and sadness over the death of a young man and the insecurity we experience even during the day.
Rapper Ruggedman witnessed the incident and tweeted his experience.
Sad that even though it happened in front of people, no one was still able to catch the killer, who climbed a bike waiting and rode off. Here is another witness’s tale of the incident..
Friends close to the family have revealed that the doctor lost his older brother a while back and now Irawo is gone. Two out of three children. Sad Indeed.
We pray that the Adamolekun family remain strong this period and fortitude to bear this loss.
May his soul rest in peace.
