Father-of-one, Olatunji Ismaila, stabbed to death by masquerade’s followers for seeking justice for a friend

A 29-year-old fashion designer, Olatunji Ismaila, left his house to seek justice for his friend, who was attacked by a masquerade and his followers on June 6, and didn’t return home alive. 

Ismaila, who lived on Isikalu Street, Ajegunle, Lagos, died after the masquerade’s followers stabbed him in the chest.

According to the brother of the deceased in a chat with Vanguard News said: “At 8:05p.m. last Saturday, my late nephew’s friend reported that he was beaten by masquerade’s followers. Normally, these people are usually with canes, which they use to scare people. Late Ismaila took his friend along to report to the leader of the masquerade team. As he was narrating how his men melted ill-treatment on his friend, one of the masquerade’s followers interjected and asked why Ismaila was speaking rudely to their leader.

This resulted in an argument that degenerated into with some masquerade followers. One of them stabbed Ismalia with a dagger in the chest. By then, I was in the mosque praying. After praying, we rushed him to a private hospital, from where we were referred to Oriki. Unfortunately, he died before we got to Oriki Hospital.

 Immediately his assailants got wind of the situation, they fled. I have lodged the incident with the Police at Tolu Division. An irate mob reportedly burnt a vehicle belonging to the chairman of the masquerade team, while protesting the death of Ismaila.”

The family while demanding for justice noted that some of the people involved in the killing of Ismaila had been gifting them money in other not to disclose the incident to the press.
