Up coming Nigerian hip hop artist, Damino Demola Damoche, has been shot dead by gunmen who are suspected to be cultists.
Reports say Damoche was killed at the main gate of the Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo by the suspected cult members yesterday evening.
There have been conflicting reports on how the young artist was murdered, but a segment of the Lagos media say he was shot by rival cultist who were on a motorcycle taxi popularly called okada in Nigeria.
Online news medium, Sahara Reporters reports that...
Damoche was shot twice, in the head and on the left hand, with what appeared to be a high caliber weapon. He lay dead for several hours before policemen took his body away in a pick-up van.
The attack appears to be a reprisal attack from a rival gang, as Damoche was known to be a member of the Eiye Confraternity. Members of that confraternity took to Twitter to promise reprisals on his assailants.
