Commercial motorcyclists have reportedly lynched a sound engineer identified as David Imoh in the Lekki axis of Lagos state.
TheCable understands that the incident happened a few days ago, following a misunderstanding between David, who is said to be a father of two, and a motorcyclist.
A misunderstanding over N100 balance was said to have degenerated, resulting in some motorcyclists present at the scene joining their colleague to beat up David and two of his friends.
The commercial motorcyclists were said to have set the deceased ablaze after beating him unconscious.
In a video clip of the incident shared online, a young man was seen lying on the ground with tyres arranged on his body, while some men set fire to the seemingly lifeless body.
TheCable understands that the sound engineer and his friends — a saxophonist and keyboardist — were heading to the studio when the incident happened.
Benjamin Hundeyin, Lagos police spokesperson, said four suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of the sound engineer.
Hundeyin added that the deceased’s friends had been taken to a hospital for treatment.
The incident has sparked outrage and condemnation on social media as many Nigerians are calling for justice for the deceased.
