David Imoh, the sound engineer lynched by commercial motorcyclists in the Admiralty area of Lekki in Lagos State has been laid to rest amidst tears.
Punch Metro reports that Imoh was beaten to a pulp before being set ablaze by a mob on May 12, 2022, after an argument bordering on N100 ensued between a motorcyclist and David’s friends, and subsequently degenerated into a fight.
The engineer’s colleagues, Frank, a saxophonist, and Philip, a keyboardist, had boarded a motorcycle to a venue on Admiralty Way where David was setting up for a show.
Punch Metro gathered that the motorcyclist sought the support of other motorcyclists, who intervened and reportedly moved to attack David's friends.
In a bid to rescue his friends, David rushed out of the venue but as he got to the scene of the attack, the motorcyclists allegedly seized and beat him till he became unconscious and his motionless body was reportedly set ablaze.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu subsequently banned commercial bike riders in six local government areas in the state.
This publication reports that Imoh was buried today, June 3, 2022, by family members, at the Atan Cemetery in Yaba.
