25 year old DJ shot dead in surulere

I hear there's been a few gang related killings among young men who live in the Shitta, Akerele, Bank Olemoh area of Surulere. One was killed on Sunday at Block 28 opposite Shitta Primary School. Another one, a DJ, was shot dead yesterday. See the Punch report below
The residents of Bank Olemoh Street, Surulere, Lagos, were terrified on Monday when two gunmen shot dead Olamide George (pictured above), a 25-year-old deejay.
According to eyewitnesses, the assassination was carried out at about 2pm while George was with friends under a tree, popularly known as Abe Igi.
When Punch Metro visited Bank Olemoh Street on Tuesday, police vehicles were seen patrolling the street.

Two residents, who pleaded anonymity, said the deceased was an ‘internet businessman’. One of them said the likely motivation for his assassination was a N2 million deal he just concluded.
They added George just rented and furnished an apartment at Apapa Road.

It was learnt that just before his murder, George reportedly answered a phone call, and the caller requested to know where he was. George answered that he was at Abe Igi.

George’s father, Mr. Gbolahan George, said, “I was told that the assassins were four and were in Keke Maruwa (tricycle). They parked at the entrance of the street; two got down and walked to where Olamide was sitting with his friends. The one with the gun did not know him, so the other person who accompanied him pointed at Olamide.

“Immediately Olamide was identified, he was shot in the head and the chest.”
“I was called around 2:30pm and was told that my son’s body was at the morgue in Lagos University Teaching Hospital. He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital. I reported the case at Area C Police Command.”
Gbolahan George said his son was not of a dubious character.
“He is a DJ, and not a scammer. And he is very gentle and pleasant. He wanted to write JAMB and get into Lagos State University.
“Olamide was also about to wed his girlfriend, Yetunde Adeyeri, who is five months pregnant before his untimely death. And that was why I gave him N500,000 to rent a one-room self-contained apartment at Apapa Road.”

Our correspondent saw family members cleaning blood stains from Olamide’s Golf Volkswagen car with number plate, LND 879 AG.

The Chairman of CDA, Bank Olemoh Street, Mr. Wilson Ojei, said, “I know Lamide as an easy young man trying to survive. Nobody had any complaints about him except for the occasional youthful exuberance, which is common among other young men in the community. From indications, the attack was not from within the community; the assassins were outsiders.

“We have been instructed by the police to cut the tree at Abe Igi.
The police spokesperson, Lagos State, Ms. Ngozi Braide confirmed the incident.
She said, “The case was reported to Area C Police Command. We are investigating the killing and I can assure you that reasonable arrest has been made.”

Sad tale..instead of talking forensic science investigation to catch the bad guys, they're talking about cutting down a tree that has been there for ages... Why do we have morons in the law enforcement. So sorry for the family, I hope justice is served.

I feel very sad hearing this tragic tale from my neighbourhood. Though, I've lived in the USA since 1994, and have been home regularly(as recently as January), I still have the "area" blood flowing in me. Sports was our outlet and "Abe Igi" was popular for its soccer battles that produced the likes of Teslim Fatusi of the 1996 gold medal Olympic Dream team. The legendary Hakeem Olajuwon, the retired NBA star of the Houston Rockets grew up in Shitta, and left from there for the USA. The great Sonny Okosuns was also raised not too far from there(off Fujah Street).OJB Jezreel, music producer par excellence is another name from there. I'm a lawyer both in Nigeria and the USA, and I can go on to mention countless professionals both home and abroad who were raised in the Akerele-Shitta-Randle-Benson-Gbaja axis. That the neighbourhood has gone to the dogs can be traced to several things chief among which is the erosion of the original values by new residents who purchased the government quarters from the original allottees and owners. The infiltration brought in people who had little in common with the culture and history of the area. Neighbours used to watch others children, and you were conscious of keeping your family name clean. Alas, those days are gone...

I'm still baffled o! Do the police think the TREE Had a hand or "branch" in it? Rather pointless. If its that the place would no longer be used as a hang out zone, then what makes them think they Wont hang out elsewhere????
May his soul RIP. Especially sad for the pregnant fiancee and the unborn baby...

Hmm, na wa o,people can be so wicked,i just pray and hope justice will be done,and by the way wat has the tree cutting git to do with the killings&all, abeg they should face facts.May God console his family&fiancee

Anonymous said...

This is what we are saying. 'Internet businessman'? The father is even hiding the fact the guy is into dubious business. Someone that can afford to drive a car will not be able to rent an apartment?

where has moral gone to in this country? The guy is about to write JAMB yet he can impregnate someone.

The situation is so pathetic oo. May his soul rest in peace. May God be with the unborn child.

The problem with this country is moral lesson is lacking in most homes.

Abe igi is a notorious joint for pple with dubious xters. Cutting down dat tree is a wise move.at least it will reduce d num dubious hideouts in dat area. Really sad abt d death bt shd serve as a lesson to d guys and girls in shitta. Yahoo and pregnancy out of wedlock is very common amongst the youths in shitta. Be warned

Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!
