Residents Kill 22-Year-Old Tailor In Lagos

On the grounds that he was a snitch for armed robbers, inhabitants of Lagos Island beat a 22-year-old apprentice named Hakeem Mujib to death.

According to reports, the deceased stopped at his colleague’s home around 2 am to pass the night on his way to deliver some clothing to a local tailor.

The victim’s coworker, Kehinde, resides in a two-story building with his attackers.
According to sources, as the Oyo State-born Mujib knocked on the door, residents of the building suspected him of being a spy because the person he identified as his friend did not reside there.

Rather than open the gate for him, residents allegedly descended on Mujib, beating him to death. They claimed that he could be a spy to armed robbers.

The source said the victim’s entreaties to his assailants that he was an apprentice on an errand for his boss fell on deaf ears, as they beat him with dangerous weapons till he breathed his last.

Residents from adjoining buildings, who heard the deceased reportedly rushed to his rescue, but his assailants prevented them from gaining entrance.

His lifeless body was dumped at the gate of the building, while perpetrators of the dastardly act took to their heels before members of the Community Development Association (CDA) and other residents could get there.

The matter was later reported at the Lion Building police station, while emergency workers evacuated the body to the mortuary.

When contacted, spokesperson for Lagos State Police  Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, said he was not aware of the incident.
He promised to contact the Lion Building and report back, but he was yet to do so at press time.
