The residents of Bank Olemoh Street in Surulere, Lagos are still in shock over the killing of a 25-year-old DJ, Olamide George, on Monday by unknown gunmen who rode on tricycle popularly known as “Keke Marwa”.
DailyPost gathered that George was shot dead at about 2pm while he was with his friends under a tree, popularly called Abe Igi.
Two resident, who pleaded anonymity, said the deceased was an ‘internet businessman’. One of them said the likely motivation for his assassination was a N2 million deal he just concluded.
They added that George just rented and furnished an apartment at Apapa Road.

DailyPost learnt that George allegedly answered a call few minutes before he was killed and his caller requested to know where he was. George had replied the caller that he was at Abe Igi.
The deceased’s father, Mr Gbolahan George said, “I was told that the assassins were four and were in Keke Maruwa (tricycle). They parked at the entrance of the street; two got down and walked to where Olamide sat with his friends. The one with the gun did not know him, so the other person who accompanied him pointed at Olamide.
“Immediately Olamide was identified, he was shot in the head and on the chest.”
“I was called around 2:30pm and told that my son’s body was at the morgue in Lagos University Teaching Hospital. He was declared dead on arrival at the hospital. I have reported the case at Area C Police Command.”
Mr Gbolahan George however refuted claims that his son was an internet fraudster.
He said, “He is a DJ, and not a scammer. And he is very gentle and pleasant. He wanted to write JAMB and get into
Lagos State University.
“Olamide was also about to wed his girlfriend, Yetunde Adeyeri, who is five months pregnant before his untimely death. And that was why I gave him
N500,000 to rent a one-room self-contained apartment at Apapa Road.”
The Chairman of the Community Development Area, Mr. Wilson Ojei, who described the tragic incident as unfortunate said, “I know Olamide as an easy young man trying to survive.
