A victim who was critically injured during the crush at the concert of fast rising Nigerian Artiste, Asake at the 02 Brixton Academy on Thursday, has died at the hospital today, Saturday.
In a statement released today by the Lambeth Police identified the said lady as Rebecca Ikumelo, 33 years of age, of Newham. Two other women also during the concert; aged 21 and 23 years, remain in a critical condition.
Ikumelo who passed on has been trending on Twitter platforms as tweeps mourn her and decry the circumstances that led to her death during the concert.
One of the tweep identified as Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said, “I am heartbroken by the tragic death of Rebecca Ikumelo – who has very sadly died following the awful events on Thursday night in Brixton.
Rebecca had her whole life ahead of her and on behalf of all Londoners, I would like to extend my condolences to her family and loved ones.”
Also another tweep, Precious tweeted, “Rebecca Ikumelo should be home with her children prepping for Christmas. She wanted to end the year on a high like the rest of you but because of shi*y security, dumb as police & reckless behaviour from people who couldn’t f*cking behave, she was robbed of that & her life.”
Jessica Rabbit added, said, “Everyone that attended that concert without a ticket has blood on their hands. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Rest in peace Rebecca, it should never have ended this way.”
Temitope Olodo, Who claimed that the deceased was a relative, said, “My favourite Niece, Rebecca Ikumelo, died today as a result of injuries sustained from #asakemusik Concert. This is a great loss for the Olodo and Ikumelo family. I can’t hold back my tears.”
Also Author, Toni Tone, shared a photo of the deceased recalling the last time they met, and wrote, “This photo was taken the day I last saw Rebecca. She was a beautiful woman who radiated positive energy and was dedicated to being the best version of herself for her kids. She also did so much to raise awareness of autism spectrum disorder. My heart goes out to her family.”
