Hotelier hired assassins to kill my son –Father

A grieving father has accused an hotelier of hiring assassins to murder his 24-year-old son on Ojuelegba Road, Surelere area of Lagos State. The 55-year-old businessman, Mr. Matthew George-Umaigba, said his son’s killers ensured he wouldn’t survive. He noted that his son, Afenghide George, was shot on his head, chest and stomach.

Matthew said that his son struggled to live for seven days before losing the battle. But before Afenghide gave up the ghost, he allegedly told his dad how he was shot and those behind the attack.
The hotelier, identified simply as Solomon, has, however, denied the allegation. It was learnt that trouble between the late Afenghide and Solomon started after the deceased went to the latter’s hotel to have a drink with some friends. Nobody knew for sure what transpired, but the two were alleged to have engaged in a heated argument.

Solomon was also accused to have whipped out a gun and shot Afenghide. It was also said that Afenghide dodged the bullet by using a table to block it. Afenghide escaped from the bullet.
When the dust settled, Solomon accused Afenghide of insulting him. Afenghide and his friends went to the hotel to drink on November 25. The hotel is said to be located two buildings away from the deceased’s home. Matthew, who demanded justice, added: “The hoodlums grabbed my son and shot him on his head, chest, and stomach.

They left him in a pool of his blood. They thought he was dead. I was returning home when I saw people gathered in front of my house. I asked them what was happening; I was told that my son had been shot.
“Some people rushed him to Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) in a tricycle. When I got there, the doctors were trying to remove the bullets in his body. On his hospital bed he told me how he was attacked.

My son was in the hospital for seven days before he eventually died. He died about 3a.m. The case was later reported at Surulere Police Station where the suspect was later invited for interrogation.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Dolapo Badmos, said two people had been arrested in connection with Afenghide’s killing. Badmos added that the police were on the trail of other members of the gang.
