How a gift of motorcycle led to my son’s death –Father

The gift of a brand new motorcycle has allegedly led to the death of a 21-year-old man, Toheeb Awolesi who, until his death, was a resident of Agboyi-Ketu area of Lagos State.

Toheeb’s uncle had reportedly bought him a motorcycle for commercial use. However, during a test-run on Sunday, two of his alleged friends offered to also test-run it, which he agreed to.

But, he reportedly refused to allow a third person to use it, allegedly because he did not recognise him in the community.

This led to a fight which soon degenerated into communal fight between so-called Ila Boys and Agboyi Boys.

Toheeb soon became the scapegoat, losing his life. His corpse was reportedly fished out of the Agboyi river on Tuesday after the family had declared him missing on Monday.

When contacted, Police PRO, Lagos State Command, Chike Oti, said investigations had commenced into the issue.
