A resident on Coates Street, who gave his name as Oyela Sodiq, said the deceased’s elder brother, identified only as Ibikunle, rushed him to a hospital where the youth was confirmed dead.Sodiq added that Sijuade, although a street boy, was a peace-loving resident, who had not had an altercation with any hoodlum in the past.
He said, “It was around 6am on Friday. The guy was wellknown, and as a street boy, he used his influence to help motorists get fuel. The hoodlums, who might have been on a reprisal, bundled him out of the station.“After a few metres, they began to stab him in the head before they cut his throat. When people saw the young man lying in a pool of blood, they called his elder brother.“His brother brought a tricycle and they rushed him to a hospital. Sadly, he did not survive it. The matter was reported to the police.
