A sound engineer has been set ablaze allegedly by a group of commercial motorcyclists in Lagos
The young man, simply identified as David, was lynched and burnt to death.
David had allegedly gotten into a misunderstanding with a commercial motorcyclist because of N100 balance. This resulted in a fight between David and the motorcyclist.
More commercial motorcyclists got involved and allegedly joined their colleague to beat David until he became unconscious.
David, a sound engineer, was on his way home from a club when the incident occurred at Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.
A video of the incident posted on Twitter shows David lying on the floor with a tire burning on his body. His attackers then pour fuel on the fire, causing it to increase.
David was beaten alongside his friends by yet-to-be-identified men.
David’s friends, Frank (saxophonist) and Philip (keyboardist) are said to be receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
Friends of the deceased have gone on Twitter to call for justice.
