Oke Obi-Enadhuze died on Wednesday 21st October 2020. He was an undergraduate student of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) in Ogun State, Nigeria studying Computer Science until he was allegedly stabbed by hoodlums in Lagos.
Before his shocking death, Oke had just tweeted “Nigeria won’t end me,” that went viral over the social media.
The younger brother of the deceased who witnessed how his brother was stabbed by hoodlums claimed his elder brother didn’t die by a stray bullet as already reported.
He took to his Twitter to debunk the earlier reports.
See below the full details of what happened
Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel, younger brother of the now-deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee. I, my brother and mother lived at Makinde Police Barracks, Mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State. Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning…… the Police Station at Makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I, my mom and brother were holed up in our house.
The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing..… this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door…
My mom’s two cars were destroyed and set on fire, and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door. They then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away everything we own.
“My brother, on trying to get them to take everything but spare us, was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck. “The attacker then proceeded to attack me, but missed my neck but got my chin instead. “After this, my mom and I carried my brother’s body to the entrance of the station, soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks.
“We were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because ‘he was already dead’. “Unfazed, we moved him to another hospital, where he met the same treatment. This was where he bled his last drops of blood and died. His body has now been moved to a morgue.
“Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee (Oke) was NOT killed by a police bullet, but died a hero protecting my mother and I.
…we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brother’s phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price…
He concluded; I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you…While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”…”
Truly Oke died as a hero; in one of his Tweets, he wrote the moment the soldiers were shooting at EndSARS protesters in Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night:
“Man, I’ve never felt this oppressed in my life. I really thought we had a good shot this one time. #EndSARS,”
May his soul rest in peace.
