Another student of Yabatech reported that a female student had also been shot with a gun and had been taken to the hospital.
Tayo Aina, a student, claimed to have been behind the victim when he was shot. “I was going to night class because my final exam is tomorrow, and the guy behind me fell as I heard a gunshot.
I can’t remember exactly, but there were two to three guys standing there, and I could see one of them had a gun as I fled for cover.
The victim with dreadlocks appeared in a video posted to Twitter wearing a sky blue pair of jeans and a black top. He was discovered in a bloody pool.
SP Benjamin Hundeyin, a spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, confirmed the death.
The Divisional Police Officer and I just spoke (DPO).
