A 31-year-old peacemaker, Yinka Adewoyin, was allegedly killed while trying to stop two men from fighting in Ogun state.
The sad incident happened on Thursday.
The deceased was on his way back home from a beer parlour with a few friends when he saw two men identified as Kazeem aka Down gear and Mopo beating an elderly mechanic called Mukaila Lasisi.
Kazeem was said to have scolded Lasisi for fixing a truck parked by the roadside, ordering him to remove it from that spot, an order Lasisi refused to follow as he isn’t the owner of the vehicle. SHOCKING… How we get information about victims—Robbery Suspects
Angered by Lasisi’s refusal to adhere to his order Kazeeem beat up the old man and was in the act when Adewoyin, passed.
The duo however queried Adewoyin’s audacity to intervene and beat him mercilessly till he fell down, hit his head on the ground and passed into a coma.
His assailants allegedly bolted while Adewoyin was taken to a nearby private hospital by bystanders. He was said to have died at the hospital three days after he was admitted.
The deceased was described by one of his former trainees, Tosin, as humble and respectful.
He said: “Throughout my stay with him as apprentice, he did not fight with anyone. I was therefore shocked when I was told on the telephone that he was killed during a scuffle.” Read also: Nigerian S’Leone based Pastor arrested for alleged hate speech
