Daniel, the brother of Oke Obi-Enadhuze, who created a blood bank app, has recounted how the product designer was killed.

Oke was widely reported to have been killed by a stray bullet during a battle between policemen and thugs who burned down the Makinde Police Station in the Oshodi area of Lagos State.

Daniel in a series of tweets said that his brother was not killed by a stray bullet but was stabbed by the hooligans that had attacked the police station.

He said that their family lived in the police barracks beside Makinde Police Station.

The deceased’s brother said policemen had tried to stop the hoodlums but after hours of an forceful gun battle, the policemen were overwhelmed and the police station was set on fire.

Thereafter, the thugs stormed the police barracks, prowling homes and attacking people.

Daniel noted that when they arrived at his home, his brother tried to protect them but he was stabbed in the neck by the thugs.

Tweeting with his handle, @DanielOE16, he stated, “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 mum 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 mum’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.”

Daniel said after the piercing, his brother was conveyed in a wheelbarrow to a nearby clinic but was declared dead on arrival.

The brother said , “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.

“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.

“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.”
