Video clips of a man lying helplessly after allegedly being shot dead by a policeman at Starboy Fest, an event organised by Wizkid, award-winning singer, have surfaced and gone viral online.
It was gathered that the incident occured on Thursday night outside the premises of the Eko Atlantic Energy City along Ahmadu Bello Way, Victorial Island — where the concert took place.
One of the videos showed people moving in different directions and a body lying on the ground, surrounded by a small crowd of people.
A minor squabble was said to have ensued between fans and security operatives attached to the event at the entrance of the venue.
Another footage showed security operatives firing teargas at a number of fans with many scampering for safety.
It was learnt that some angry youths took the victim’s body to a nearby police station in Victoria Island where they dumped the corpse.[6:51AM] @gidifeedtv: Man spotted lying helplessly after allegedly being shot by a police office at Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos at Wizkid?s #STARBOYFEST cc pic.twitter.com/8OgCiuvBrI #TrafficChief— #LagosTrafficReports (@TrafficChiefNG) December 27, 2019
