Tears refused to stop rolling down the cheeks of friends and family members of David Imoh whose burial was conducted today.
KanyiDaily recalls that David, who was identified as a sound engineer was beaten and later burnt to death by a group of alleged Hausa commercial motorcyclists over N100 balance.
The news however came as a big shock to Nigerians who jointly condemned the act.
This heinous act contributed to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s decision to end the operations of Okada riders in 6 Local Government Areas of the state.
Prior to the final burial held at the Lagos private cemetery, his family members held a memorial service for him where the deceased was described as a diligent and committed person.
