A sound engineer identified as David Imoh has been allegedly set ablaze and burnt to death by a group of commercial motorcyclists in the Lekki area of Lagos state. According to viral reports, David had gotten into a misunderstanding with one of the commercial motorcyclist all because of a hundred naira balance. This quickly resulted in a fight between the deceased and the motorcyclist. More commercial motorcyclists got involved and allegedly joined their colleague to beat David until he became unconscious.
David, a sound engineer, was on his way home from a club when the incident occurred at Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. A video of the incident posted on Twitter shows David lying on the floor with a tire burning on his body. His attackers then pour fuel on the fire, causing it to increase.Thanks for reading this article!!

I’ve watched this video again and again and because I know admiralty road I am shocked that this happened and no security or passing citizens could come to the rescue same as in #sokoto #edo https://t.co/ylh0jZVem8David was beaten alongside his friends by yet-to-be-identified men. David’s friends, Frank (saxophonist) and Philip (keyboardist) are said to be receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital.
They were Hausas. Watch the video and tell me the language. They did this to my guy. Ah! OMG💔 pic.twitter.com/KzDMIGWwr7— 𝒪𝓂ℴ𝓌𝒶𝓁ℯ (@john_omowale) May 15, 2022Friends of the deceased have gone on Twitter to call for justice.
This is Fransax. One of the guys that was beaten to a pulp by the mob for no just reason. He came outside to check on his musician colleagues & they labelled him as one of them & immediately pounced on him too. He's presently fighting for his life at the hospital. #JusticeForDave pic.twitter.com/iwSvJf6V0K— ZZETTA (@lordesszzetta) May 14, 2022
These guys are currently in hospital fighting for their lives. Something must be done to all these ABOKIS in Lagos. Most of them are not human. Please @jidesanwoolu do something! We beg you!#sanwoolu #justiceforphilip— 𝒪𝓂ℴ𝓌𝒶𝓁ℯ (@john_omowale) May 14, 2022
Dave was not a yahoo boy. Dave was not a kidnapper nor a ritualist! Dave was a legit young hardworking sound engineer that was set on fire & killed by a mob for no just reason in front of the venue of his show on Admiralty road. Say no to jungle justice! #JusticeForDave #RIPDave https://t.co/ecd7uri0Zy pic.twitter.com/5OtIgBlbZE— ZZETTA (@lordesszzetta) May 14, 2022
Dave was a sound Engineer in Lagos. He was on his way to an event at Admiralty using the same bike with the keyboardist Philip . They had an argument with the bike man who was an Aboki man over N100 which resulted in a fight. #JusticeForDave— DR.PENKING™ 🇦🇺🇳🇬 (@drpenking) May 15, 2022
