Grace Bolu, the widow of Sunday-David Umoh, the 37-year-old sound engineer who was Murdered and burnt by itsry motorcycle operators, has urged the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, to fish out his killers and aseks for justice.
The mother of two, who works at Ijede LCDA, as a senior technical officer mechanical, and infrastructure department, said:
“My husband was not part of those that boarded the bike. Two musicians were the ones who board the commercial bike. One of them plays for Phino while the other plays for Dbanj.
They board the bike, and agreed to pay N400, on getting to their destination at Beer Bar along Admiralty Way Lekki, they offered the bike an, 500 to collect 400 and give them 100 change. The bike man said he didn’t have N100 and they got into an argument.
When the argument worsened into a fight someone ran inside the bar and called for help, my husband was part of the people that went down to intervene and stop the fight.
It was when he tried to interfere that they were yelling and they are yahoo guys, ritualists. When they realised that the motorcycle operators were more than them they ran back to the bar, unfortunately, the manager of the bar pushed them out, because he doesn’t know the guys who board the bike. That was how they were attacked and my husband was burnt.”
She said further “My husband was 37-year-old when he was murdered in cold blood. I got a call on Friday 13th of May at about past 3pm. I was told that my husband was late. I had to quitttantly rush down to the church. I was around my dad’s Church because I could not talk, I was in shock, and I gave my dad the phone to talk to.
For the sake of my little children, my husband deserves justice. justices should be served, I want security for my children, I am just a civil servant,” she wept.
