See how this peacemaker was killed while trying to settle a scuffle in Ogun
A 31-year-old man, Yinka Adewoyin, has been beaten to death while he was trying to make peace between two men during a scuffle, TheNation reports.
The incident happened penultimate Thursday. Adewoyin was reportedly returning from a beer joint with some of his friends when they sighted two men identified as Kazeem aka Down gear and Mopo brutalising an elderly mechanic called Mukaila Lasisi.
Kazeem was said to have reprimanded Lasisi for working on a truck parked along the road. He was said to have ordered the removal of the truck from the road, a request Lasisi turned down on the grounds that he was not the owner of the vehicle.
Lasisi’s response allegedly irked Kazeem, who in a fit of fury pounced on Lasisi and beat him up. It was at this juncture that Adewoyin, who was passing by intervened and pleaded with Kazeem and his friend, Mopo to leave Lasisi alone.
The duo however queried Adewoyin’s audacity to intervene and beat him mercilessly till he fell down, hit his head on the ground and passed into a coma.
His assailants allegedly bolted while Adewoyin was taken to a nearby private hospital by bystanders. He was said to have died at the hospital three days after he was admitted.
The deceased was described by one of his former trainees, Tosin, as humble and respectful. He said: “Throughout my stay with him as apprentice, he did not fight with anyone. I was therefore shocked when I was told on the telephone that he was killed during a scuffle.”
