Akure-based Gospel Singer, Heben Ajayi, is dead after an attack by gunmen believed to be armed robbers who invaded and shot him at his Ibadan, Oyo State residence.
According to reports, he was attacked by armed robbers and shot at his residence.
One of his close friends said, “We rushed him University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, Oyo State and the medical personnel demanded a police report before he could be attended to after we explained that he was shot by armed robbers.
“Then we rushed him to a private hospital —J-Rapha Hospital and they also refused to treat him without a police report.
He bled for three hours. Unfortunately, he died while we were trying to look for another hospital to take him to. It’s absurd that this happened, he could hav been alive if these hospitals had treated him first before demanding a police report. His wedding was to take place next week. It’s sad!.”
Another friend identified as Ehins, took to facebook to mourn the tragic loss. His post reads, A healthy young man full of dreams and ambitions. Resourceful and full of impact.
“Brutally murdered last night… about a week to his wedding. Fought for his life for 3 hours and loosing blood.Denied treatment at UCH, Ibadan cos the good Samaritans who brought him could not provide a police report.
“Again, this country has failed us. we were preparing for your wedding but now it’s your funeral. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND AND BROTHER.”
