    RIP young man. Why don’t you stay in Lagos on such a day like today.
    I feel for your family.
    Most of you South Eastern people are safer in Lagos than in your homeland no wonder you don’t invest there

      People stay in their own homes and get killed there, no one has control over that. He could have still died inside his own house

    I wonder why he had to die rather than surrender his cell phone. Was he born with it? Today’s invention becomes obsolete in the next six months. Wisdom is the key to living a successful life. Condolences to his family. What a waste of a promising young life.

    Men stop that stupidity of struggling or trying to exhibit power with armed men when you’re being attacked. Apply wisdom and surrender whatever they ask for, or else, you will just waste your previous life out of stupidity. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Is phone more important than your life? these are men that are armed and are already high on hard drugs. A guy was killed in that same Aba sometimes ago. He was in charge of supervision of a house project, he was on his way from the bank where he had gone to cash money to pay the workers for.the day. Armed robbers intercepted him and asked him to hand over the money, he resisted and even went to the extent of struggling with them, they killed him like chicken and still took the money. MEN BE WISE, apply WISDOM. RIP to the dead.
