As against the story making rounds that an alleged internet fraudster, popularly know as yahoo yahoo, has been shot dead by the Special Anti-robbery Squad, there is a twist to it.
The alleged fraudster, identified as one ‘Aboy Life of Jingah‘ was allegedly shot dead by operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) in Lagos on suspicion that he was a ‘Yahoo Boy’..
Aboy was reportedly gunned down at Oyins Holiday Inn, a hotel in the Ikotun area of Lagos for ‘trying to run away‘ after a policeman asked him to unlock his phone for inspection.
Protest immediately ensued at the Ikotun area of Lagos, as his friends are now demanding justice.
Later on, a Nigerian Twitter User (@iamdamilosky) came out to dispel claims that the suspected yahoo boy was shot dead by SARS.
See tweets below;
ABOY tried to escape when he & others at the pool bar heard SARS were at Oyins Hotel, he fell on a sharp rod that pierced his stomach & hand.
He was immediately rush to a nearby hospital, Subol Hospital & was rejected. His friends then rushed him to General Hospital where he died.
SARS didn’t shoot ABOY. The SARS operatives didn’t even come to raid the hotel, they came to see the owner of the hotel.
I was still seating with ABOY the whole day, didn’t know his death was nearby.
The whole event is just unfortunate.
Come online to see a blogger write a completely false story is just appalling. Its very bad, just because u want to gain viewers to ur blog
The pictures he attached to the blog post is valid and the video is from yesterday when his friends came to Oyins to destroy the hotel but..
…but were stopped by the Nigerian Police Force from Ikotun and Idimu division who were invited by the manager of the hotel.
