An upcoming musician, Damilola Olaniyan, also known as Damino Damouche was on Thursday shot dead at the gate of the Lagos State University by suspected cultists who reportedly came on a motor cycle. The artiste was shot twice in the head and once on the left hand shortly after he finished writing a test.
He was until his death a 400 Level student of the Banking Finance Department and his claim to fame on campus was his song Spend Money. Street Journal’s findings revealed that he was registered in the university with the matriculation number 0908012117.
There were insinuations that he belonged to a cult group on campus and that he was murdered by members of a rival cult group. Observers have become apprehensive that LASU seems to be gradually slipping back into the bloody days of the 1990s when cult groups operated freely in broad daylight without reverence for law and order. The many murders around that time prompted the authorities of the institution to place billboards with the message “LASU is not an abattoir” all over the premises.
