Vigo was pronounced dead at a private clinic.
Ghnewslive has gathered that the incident occurred at a newsstand around Vox Bus Stop, Lagos-Badagry expressway. They got into a serious argument which later turned bloody after Vigo’s friend, who was said to be drunk break a bottle and stabbed him in the neck. Even though he was rushed for medical attention, he didn’t survive.
Read what an eye witness said;
“Vigo was an Arsenal fan, so he was arguing with this guy (murderer) and before we knew what was going on the guy broke a bottle and stabbed him on his neck.”
“So the other guys who took Vigo to the hospital were visibly angry when they learnt he was dead. They just returned to the scene where the attacker was still standing and he was violently attacked and beaten to stupor,”
Ghnewslive found out that it was not the first time that man would be accused of killing somebody in the area,
“that was how he pushed Baba Ijebu to his death,” a source reveals.
“Whenever he is drunk or high on drugs he misbehaves and causes problems for us in this area.
“That was why the police officers were looking at him when he was being mobbed. Nothing will happen because the police will not do anything about it.”
Vigo’s sympathizers approached the murderer and they did not spare him, beating him with planks, machetes, and knives. Fortunately, Ojo Police operatives were said to be timely at the scene as the angry youths had started to make plans to set the murderer ablaze. The police rescued the hopeless man and took him away.
