The residents of Bank Olemoh Street in Surulere, Lagos are still in shock over the killing of a 25-year-old DJ, Olamide George, on Monday by two unknown gunmen.
DailyPost gathered that George was shot dead at about 2pm while he was with his friends under a tree, popularly called Abe Igi. Two resident, who pleaded anonymity, said the deceased was an ‘internet businessman’. One of them said the likely motivation for his assassination was a N2 million deal he just concluded.
They added that George just rented and furnished an apartment at Apapa Road.
DailyPost learnt that George allegedly answered a call few minutes before he was killed and his caller requested to know where he was. George had replied the caller that he was at Abe Igi.
The deceased’s father, Mr Gbolahan George said, “I was told that the assassins were four and were in Keke Maruwa (tricycle). They parked at the entrance of the street; two got down and walked to where Olamide sat with his friends. The one with the gun did not know him, so the other person who accompanied him pointed at Olamide.
“Immediately Olamide was identified, he was shot in the head and on the chest.”
