A 33-year-old Lagos airport baggage carrier, Idowu Olawuyi was attacked and stabbed to death by armed robbers in Lagos State.
The father of one was killed on his way to work around Bunkas junction, AIT Road in the Alagbado area of of the State.
The deceased who worked at the local wing of the Murtala Muhammed Airport in Ikeja met his intimely death when three robbers waylaid him around 4.20am.
The deceased was dispossessed of his valuables during the robbery attack.
According to reports, the victim was struggling with the robbers when one of them reportedly stabbed him in the chest with a knife.
when contacted, Idowu’s elder brother, Adedayo said:
“Around 6.30am on December 4, 2020, I was having morning devotion with my family when I missed a call from a strange number. When I called back, the person asked if I knew Idowu Olawuyi and I told him that he was my brother. The person told me to come to Bunkas junction because it appeared as if hoodlums had attacked and killed him on his way to work.
I called my brother’s line but it was switched off. I called his wife, Bolanle, and she said she had not heard from him since he left for work around 4.15am.
At that point, I started believing what the strange caller told me. I also received another call from a different person, who told me the same thing, and because where the incident happened is not far from where he lived, a lot of people, who knew Idowu, saw his corpse lying on the ground; so, they went to his house and on getting there, they saw that his wife was young.
They looked for elderly landlords and broke the news to her; they police were contacted and I was also informed.
When I saw my brother’s corpse inside the police vehicle, I saw that he was stabbed in the centre of his chest, just because the hoodlums want to snatch his phone.
I wrote a statement at the police station and the corpse was deposited in the Ota General Hospital mortuary.
The police and the youth leader in the area immediately swung into action and started combing the environment and one person was arrested.
Later on, I received another call that another person had been arrested and one of them confessed to killing my brother.
The case was later transferred to the SCIID, Panti. I went there and the two suspects were brought out and when I saw the person, who killed Idowu, I asked him why and he started crying.
He said he didn’t know that my brother would die and that they had already collected his phone and while trying to run away, some nightguards were coming close to them and Idowu held unto his leg, and in the process of setting himself free, he stabbed him.”
The body of the deceased who died at the scene of the brutal attack, was deposited in a mortuary.
Idowu is survived by an eight-month-old baby, identified as Ezeikel.
