Nov 16, 2013 – How A Nigerian Man Killed His Best Friend In Dublin Over A Married Woman – Taiwo Jamani’s Murder Details Released

On November 15th, 2013, exclusively shared the story of a popular Dublin-based socialite who passed away on November 13th, 2013 after one month in coma. If you missed the initial story, read it here.

Taiwo Jamani was killed by his best friend, Jooda Akanbi over what sources called “fight over a woman”.

Here is what a source from Dublin said over the case:

The problem was not this year issue, it happened some time last year and is “dem say”. The killer was having an affair with a woman that the husband left because of her “waka waka” wahala with 3 grown kids. These men are married and are friends, but the killer was dating the mother of 3.

On the day of the attack, Taiwo Jamani went to meet the woman and told her that she is not supposed to be dating Jooda Akanbi” the mother of 3 went and told the killer after they have settled and that is when the killer sent message to the deceased that he will kill him for spoiling his market.

My fellow Nigerians, there was a 3rd man from the same tribe greeting the deceased by the road side when he parked his car.

The killer, Jooda Akanbi was driving on the road when he spotted the deceased. He stopped in the middle of the road and started abusing Taiwo Jamani using all sort of abusive words. He later pulled over and parked.

Jooda Akanbi went to his boot and the deceased decided to go and talk to his “friend” as a mature guy. On getting to him, Jooda slapped him and since this was happening on a main street day time the deceased turned back and walked away.

As he was walking away, the killer took his baseball bat and hit Taiwo on the head. As he fell down unconscious, Jooda continue hitting him till some white guys started shouting on him and someone went and called the police (garda). The police station is about 2-3mins walk from the murder scene.

The 3rd guy that was with the deceased did not do anything during the alleged murder. He didn’t give witness to police when police called for eye witness, but the mother of 3 went to testify against the killer that he has used that same baseball bat to hit her. The 3rd guy that was there, that saw everything that happened told me this story because I’m not there and the white guys that saw how he was brutally murdered also said so.

The actors here are from the same tribe and tell me how on earth will you be with someone greeting him and someone hit him four times and you did not do anything all because of fear.

The 3rd guy said that the killer has used the baseball bat to threaten him on several occasions and that’s why he didn’t intervene.

The mother of 3 that caused all the problem has moved on with her life. She is now with another married man that is in asylum hostel with his family. He has since left his family and now stays with that same woman. The deceased family is in Holland while the killer is married to an Irish woman living in the same area where the murder happened.

The deceased has been on life support for the past one month and with no sign of improvement. The doctors said there is no need of letting him suffer for nothing.

On November 13th, 2013, they took him off life support.

May his soul rest in peace.

    I am a Yoruba man and I belive this can happen in any tribe
    I blame the witness for not intervening

    It’s not about tribe, it’s just that he has a very poor judgement
    Taiwo may your soul rest in perfect peace

    Na wa o. I strongly feel there were unresolved issues between the two. The mother of 3 story just fuel it. I strongly advised that all nigerians sojourning overseas should be their brother’s keeper; and be good ambassador of nigeria anywhere they find themselves.

    Very sad ending for 2 Ng guys who left the shores of Ng for golden fleece abroad.Am very surprised bc street fighting is very very uncommon abroad-Amer,Lond,europ bc police are very very effective so everybody behaves,I belive one evil spirit entered the killer by now his eyes will be open.He is likely going to spend the rest of his life in jail. if not more than this.No bending of the law.The one who killed his banker wife in Lag,the case is still going up and down. If u hit a dog or animal,or squirrel at your backyard abroad and you are caught- u go to jail,how much more hitting human being with a stick continously in the head.For the killer,that is the end of his show too(he is now dead alive)Lesson,all,all youths should turn to God,the best option and you will be secured.

    Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall
    (1 Corr 10:12)
    We can pass judgement till we are blue in the face…even adulterers and fornicators will come to this blog and call people names as if their lives are perfect. Some have even extended their judgement to a tribe as it the tribe they belong is clean…..usually it is not totally their opinion, they just do not take time enough to think deep enough before turning to keyboard ninja. Despite the fact that the 3rd man did not intervene, he might not have thought the altercation will develop into what it only takes a few seconds to pull out a bat and club someone.If he was truly in d car, a passerby would have intervened faster than him. Also he might not have been a legal resident, therefore not wanting to inject himself in the altercation but i think if he had d power to foresee he outcome he would probably have acted differently. Now Madam wakawaka (the root of the matter)is a different story entirely…that is d devils agent if all that is written here about her is true. May God help her to rid herself of whatever demon is following her about…..I do not know what to say about the alleged killer,a lot of us have done things under the influence of anger and rage, that in retrospect we wished we could undo, may God help us to rid ourselves of anger and ego which all stems from PRIDE.

    You people can not blame the 3rd man, l am in europe, if it happens l will do the samething, the 3rd man said the killer has threaten him before with the batton, What of if the 3rd person has no paper and he has been told to leave Dublin by lmmigration before? Don’t you people think it can lead to his deportation? Even in western world people are always scared of settling disputes, if anything happy Police will blame, they will say u are not authorised to intervene, that is why police has special number you are going to call in case of emergency. And moreover the causes of their fight in never coz of women matter, You said the woman has gone to relocate with another man in an asylum hostel, so quick? ls that house an asylum seaker will just accommodate someone in the hostel, the asylum seaker can go and stay with the woman outside not in the hostel,Just within one month, the wwoman has relocated sharp sharp, naija news .May the soul of the gentle man rest in peace.

Before u start to judge people THINK. so u want the 3rd man to get involved too so he can be dead to when this guy already treatened him too, maybe then u can all start to say “awh hes very stupid o get involved” u people r never satisfied always looking for someone to blame and more gossip to go around very evil and dirty MOUTHED people and to the person that wrote this story u call urself a journalist awhhhhh u need to go bk to ur informer and get the correct story. why is it the 3rd man that shud have involve himself why not the other 30 people that saw it?????????? you shud all b ashamed off urselves god be with u all.

      @ Helen, you kept abusing people bcos they felt the 3rd guy should have stopped the killer…that’s is their opinion and you don’t have to defend the guy, na ur husband or ur bf? If the guy couldn’t intervene why didn’t he call the police as soon as he saw the baseball bat, he did absolutely nothing, he is a coward. Helen abuse me if you want back at you. to the woman involved, she need to repent now before another man die. The killer……I hope he will seek GOD’s mercy for what he did and I pray that GOD will forgive him and forgive the dead man too. Shalom

    But for Mr.Taiwo,he made a mistake, he would have mind his business instead of going to the woman telling her not to date Jooda, the killer. I think it is a lesson for people to mind their business because there is a kind of you advice you give to people that will put you into trouble such as this very one that landed Mr. Taiwo to death. Another thing is they would have reported Jooda to police when he threating to kill them because life threaten is a serious issue one should not take light. may his soul rest in peace

    Ppl listen, The late Taiwo just parked his car at the car park along the road sword “main street” and he saw the third guy which happened to be someone he knowns and that was the reason he was greeted him not that the 3rd guy was inside the car, and his on that process he was greeting the 3rd guy the killer arrived on that place, not even arrived but was driving by when he saw the 2 guyz and started abusing late Taiwo at the middle of the road and immediately he pulled off and open his car boot and being a friend to Late Taiwo and he the Taiwo has nothing in mind, he just cross to the other side of the road to know the reason why his friend will be using such “words” on him and when he got to the killer “SHARON” as his called, Sharon ‘blow’ hit him on his face and this things was happening between 1-2pm late Taiwo just turned to walk away from him as in going back to his car as a gentle man or do not want to fight that was the time the Killer reached to his weapon and made use of it as he always…. And the 3rd guy saw all that transpired even when the killing was taking place……. I want those of you that said that the 3rd man did not have “paper” or was afraid, suppose it happen to be his brother or father will you tell me that he will run away not even that the killer was with gun.
    Guy that want ppl to call police special number, Police station from that point was about 20-30 seconds walk.

    And those that think that late Taiwo is dating the woman, there are just friends as in “hi friends” and being a Yoruba ppl and nothing more than that.
    He saw the woman with bruises all over her body and he asked what is wrong with you and she responded “his ur friend ooh” and that is how Taiwo said what are you still doing with this kind man and that is the end…….. my ppl is this a mad advice to give to a young good looking lady no matter her character the woman fine sha!!!!! You should ask who told the killer, the woman. If you guyz need the woman full name and picture inbox me i will send it to you because she caused all this suppose she is still with her husband nothing like this will never happen see how she wasted young man life

    Don’t blame the lady. This is very common among my people, They fight over women a lot more than any other tribe I can think of. They can spend and do anything for a woman. The only thing they think of is oppressing their fellow brother, stealing women from each other. I know them very well, the same thing happens here. its a shame.

    Tajudeen Abioye (TJ of Holland) paid Akanbi to kill Taiwo, what a world, that is the reason why he was requesting Taiwo body flown to Nigeria so that he can use is body for his stupid retual. Taiwo spirit will fight you. Thanks for The Jamani family for not allowing Taiwo’s body to be buried in Nigeria, what a wise and good decision. Rest in Peace Taiwo Jamani.
